MERIT Brewing Releases 2022 Editions of Roses Are Red and Violets Are Blue

HAMILTON, ON – MERIT Brewing has announced the release of this year’s editions of a pair of beer-wine hybrids.

Roses Are Red Gewurtztraminer Gose (7.5% abv):

A beautiful summer wine hybrid brewed with Gewurtztraminer grapes from Fielding Estates Winery. Freshly pressed Gewurztraminer skins were added to a traditional zero-hop gose for extended aging. Pouring a honeycomb gold with tart aromatics of elderflower, white grape juice, and stone fruit with hints of gentle tangerine and bright floral character bursting out of the bottle. Roses is pure love in a glass.

Violets Are Blue Gamay Gose (7.0% abv):

This year’s version pours a gorgeous rosy pink with heady aromas of strawberry, watermelon, and cherry, capped off by a stunningly dry acidity engulfed by grape, cherry, roses and field berry. It’s a Prince song in a glass. Think Sexy Dancer – the album version. Brewed with Gamay juice and skins from Fielding Estates.

Both beers are available now at the MERIT Brewing retail store and online shop.
