parhelion farmhouse saison - foeder reserve

available on tap in our taproom and retail store july 10

The first collaboration beer coming out of our Foeder Reserve Program!! Back in February 2018, Brewmaster Morgan Wielgosz collaborated with Amsterdam Brewing Company to create this unique rustic Farmhouse Saison.

Parhelion Inspiration and Amsterdam Brewery Collaboration 

There is a customary “passing of the guard” when a brewer moves on to work at another brewery. Their previous Brewmaster travels to the new brewery to collaborate on an inaugural beer. We carried on this tradition when Amsterdam Brewery’s Brewmaster Iain McOustra and Innovation Head Brewer Cody Noland travelled to Winnipeg to work alongside Morgan Wielgosz, former Brewing Supervisor for Amsterdam Brewery and now Trans Canada Brewing Company’s Brewmaster. This collaboration resulted in the first release from our Foeder Program, Parhelion Farmhouse Saison from Foeder No. 6.

The Name “Parhelion” 

On the day of the brew, in February 2018, a Parhelion, more commonly known as a Sundog, dominated the frigid Winnipeg winter sky inspiring the name for this beer.

Parhelion’s Unique Ingredient and Process

This Rustic Farmhouse Saison was brewed using wild rice sourced from Du Bois Wild Rice Ltd., a fourth generation Manitoba family farm. A combination of the French oak from the foeder and the bottle conditioning process created a delicate effervescence that enhances the complex notes, blending together in a balanced finish.

Parhelion Tasting Notes

Experience a soft, oak silkiness that unfolds over complex spice and fruity esters with a traditional yeast funk (Brettanomyces) and a nutty undertone pulled from the wild rice.

Nordic Pale Ale****sold out

Brewed exclusively and in collaboration with RAW:almond and now available for a limited time this Wednesday, February 20th @4pm in 750ml bottles in our retail store and on draft in our taproom!

Nordic Pale Ale or Kveik Pale Ale (Kveik - Norwegian word for yeast, pronounced kwike), is a Norwegian Farmhouse yeast strain. For generations Norwegian brewers have been passing down the yeast that ferment their unique, characterful farmhouse ales.

Chef Mandel and Head Brewer Morgan Wielgosz wanted to collaborate on an exclusive beer for RAW:almond. While attending Raw:Wasagaming, Chef presented a dish with hand picked spruce tips - it was one of Morgan’s favourite dishes - and part of the inspiration for the Norwegian Pale Ale.

This batch produced beautiful, bold tropical and citrus notes of tangerine peel, ripe pineapple and mango. We sourced Canadian Black Spruce tips and steeped them for 24 hours before adding them to the fermentor. The spruce tips added a fresh woodsy-resinous component to the beer that compliments the tangerine notes.

In general, our Nordic Pale Ale has bold aromatic notes of tangerine peel and subtle fresh woodsy undertone. It is medium bodied with moderate carbonation that accentuates the resins from the spruce tips. There are subtle malt undertones on the palate with a gentle bitterness and dry, crispy finish. We wanted to create a beer that would compliment the dishes presented at Raw, while showcasing the dynamic aromatic and flavour profile of the kveik and spruce tips. 6% ABV/15 IBU
