It’s not everyday you get a release of barrel aged yumminess from Birdsong Brewing’s “Take Flight Series!” On 9/28 the Charlotte brewery will release Weasels on Woodpeckers Belgian Saison.
Back in 2015 when a photo of a weasel on a woodpecker went viral, Birdsong received tweets and emails galore suggesting that they use that image to name a beer in their Take Flight Series! It kind of fits the theme… Turtles on Pterodactyls, Squirrels on Geese and Mongoose on Monkeys… you get the idea. They’ve been working on this beer idea for quite some time and are finally ready to unveil!
Weasels on Woodpeckers is a Belgian Saison aged in white wine barrels with fresh peaches added. The Belgian yeast is complimented with upfront aromas of Chardonnay oakiness and finishes with a slightly tart, slightly sweet peach finish! Kind of tastes like a peach bellini. Who doesn’t like those?
They’ve packaged a limited amount of bottles and draft to release at 3pm on Thursday, 9/28! 22 oz bottles will be first come, first serve and $10 each.
