Flaked wheat and oats add a rich creaminess to our base beer, substantial at 6.8% alc/vol. To that we add muscat of Alexandria, an “aromatic” grape grown at the Spanish missions. They have a perfumy, spicy quality that punches through the wheat and malt flavors. In honor of the many other crops grown in Mission gardens, we’ve chosen pears for this version of Gran Missionario. The beer is creamy, off-dry and fruity in a most complex way, with aromas of flowers and spice. A new hop variety, Hallertau Blanc, adds additional fruity aroma notes, complementing our Belgian yeast strain.
