Ale with Strawberries, Honey, and White Pepper Aged in Wine Barrels

Inspired by an amuse bouche often prepared by the wife of one of our brewers, Scully brings white pepper, strawberry, and honey to a harmonious blend of “mouth amusement”. The ingredients are added at different stages to a Saison, and fermented with a normal Belgian yeast as well as a Champagne yeast.

Formerly known as "Scully"

THANKS for sharing RB people! Sampled 750 ml. bottle @ outside De Bierkoning during Carnivale Brettanomyces 2016! Some of their sister beers of Goose Island aren’t that great & plenty of the new vintages were lesser, overly sour etc. compared to what I remember them being. This one was just wonder as fitting for a show as phenomenal as the X-Files. Hazy orange with basically no head. Nose is big strawberry, honey, faint apricot, huge fruit & light honey. Taste is awesome strawberry, fruit is vibrant and lively, sweet upfront, sweet strawberry with honey leading into a complimentary sour, lightly puckering, this has balance, amazing fruit etc. this one & Halia are the ones that you need.
