February 20, 2014 – AUSTIN – Adelbert’s Brewery, a Belgian-style brewery based in Austin, Texas, is excited to announce the release of its newest special release. Vintage Nun, a wit aged in red wine oak barrels for two years, will begin to hit shelves in late February.
This year’s Vintage Nun is a blend of Adelbert’s Naked Nun wit, which spent two years aging in red wine oak barrels. A portion of the barrels were spontaneously fermented. The result is a tart, well balanced, refreshing ale, with notes of oak, red wine, unique barrel funk, and citrus fruit.
“I love the complexity of flavors that develops when we let our beers age in barrels,” said Scott Hovey, Adelbert’s Founder and Brewmaster. “This batch is particularly special because it is a blend of spontaneously fermented beers and some of the oldest beers we’ve brewed.”
Vintage Nun will begin distribution throughout Texas the last week of February. A few kegs will also make it to New York where the brewery is re-launching distribution in March.
The brewery recommends pairing it with salty or herbed cheeses, smoked meats, and fruit. It is best enjoyed slightly chilled; not ice cold.
