A Note on This Beer
Until today, we’ve never tasted a beer infused with Black Locust flowers -- have you?? The honeysuckle-like flowers are used in winemaking to add gentle elderflower-like sweet vanilla essence -- and they only grow in the mountains of the East Coast.
New York’s Plan Bee Farmhouse Brewery fuses this mysterious flower with a smooth and tart Farmhouse base in their Bouquet Sour Ale -- a complex blend that shows why Craft Beer & Brewing calls them a breakout brewery and exemplifies the ethos that independent beer will never stop experimenting. With only 50 cases in existence, a mere few in the world can taste Plan Bee’s meticulous use of Black Locust flowers at their floral finest.
For Bouquet, the brewery pairs their house honey yeast with the delicate flavors of freshly-picked Black Locust flowers grown on their very own New York State farm -- the blossoms impart sweet white flower notes over a lemony Sour base. Coolshipping brings a sharp acidity and captures microflora from the farm, adding distinct notes of herbal lavender. Inhale its wealth of sweet basil aromas and you’ll instantly be transported into a flower patch on Plan Bee’s estate.
Share Bouquet with friends and give them a taste of the next star boutique brewer of Sour Farmhouse Ales. Invite them over to a summer evening on the porch, watch the fireflies flicker and ruminate on this elegant, endlessly complex ale with a rare floral twist.
