The 3rd beer released in the Cellar Series from Green Flash. The question is, will Iowa see this beer? We did get Silva Stout and Flander’s Red should be hitting shelves June 7th, so hopefully we see both new beers from the Cellar 3 series. This beer sounds delicious as it’s a saison that has been fermented in oak foudres and then aged in red wine barrels with plum puree. Here’s more courtesy of beerstreejournal.com:
Green Flash Natura Morta Plum will the third entry into the brewery’s new “Cellar 3″ program. Recently, the brewery opened a new barrel aged location/warehouse/tap room dubbed ‘Cellar 3′, from which beers like Flanders Drive and Silva Stout are a part.
Bells 6th installment of their Planetary Series, Uranus the Magician, is bottled and ready to ship. Uranus is a black double IPA coming in at 9.5%. Here’s more from beerstreetjournal.com on this release:
Starting last year, Bell’s kicked off a new series based on composer Gustav Holst’s “The Planets” orchestral suite. The beer series, like the suite contains seven movements (beers). Bell’s Mars, The Bringer of War arrived in late summer, 2014.
Bell’s Uranus, The Magician, is an black imperial IPA, in an attempted to capture the essence of the dark planet that is almost 32, 000 miles from Earth.
The hop profile is enormous and complex with help from Citra, Galaxy, Polaris and other hard to find hops. The use of de-bittered or de-husked black malt lends color without the overly astringent or roasty flavors normally associated with stouts and porters.
Bell’s Uranus is available in June in 12oz bottles for a limited time.
Style: Imperial IPA
Hops: Citra, Galaxy, Polaris
Availability: 12oz Bottles. One-time Release
