Driftwood Brewery Releases Venatrix Framboise Wild Ale

Monday Magazine's craft beer aficionado reviews Driftwood Venatrix Framboise

Mathieu Poirier

Driftwood Brewery has just released Venatrix Framboise Wild Ale, their most recent addition to its wild and sour Bird of Prey lineup. Joining their Latus, Obscuritas, De Auras, Bell Royale, Lustrum, Mad Bruin and Flanders Red, this edition has been patiently waiting its release for some time.

Combining Superior Pilsen malts with Hersbrucker hops, then conditioned and aged for more than a year, this beer will come off as crisp, tart, and fruity. In addition, coming in at 7% ABV, should make for a complex and bold profile.

Further, the label by Hired Guns Creative out of Nanaimo, is yet another example of why Driftwood Brewery continues to be showcased for their eye-catching designs.

Released today, it should be available on liquor store shelves around Victoria now.
