Lastly, the next installment in the Finite Series will be released. Reverb is a red wine barrel aged American style wheat beer. This beer was brewed with Horton Ridge Malt & Grain malted wheat, and aged for two months in a red wine barrel from Benjamin Bridge. The beer was then conditioned naturally in the bottle for just over 4 months. Tasting notes are "Lemon, peach, a little funky with a refreshing effervescence". There will be 292-750 ml bottles of Reverb available. 
All three releases will be available in the bottle shops with Midnight available now and Dartmouth Dark available on Thursday and Reverb out on Friday November 24th.
