Pour Les Oiseaux is a blend of complex earthy, fruity and light tannic flavors with a crisp and refreshing finish. Brewed with barley, wheat, rye and oats for a golden color and lightly spiced malt flavor. Earthy hay and wild yeast aromas mingle with light notes of Washington wine grapes. Pour Les Oiseaux is aged in French oak white wine barrels with the addition of brettanomyces. Released annually.

Aroma has tart tones with white wine and citrus. Also some mild milky tones. Flavour has sweet fruity tones, white wine, acidic notes, citron and white wine. White wine is strong with this one – which I unfortunately find as a bad thing.
