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"

2013 Vintage
Tasted on 6/29/14 from a capped 750mL bottle purchased at Bruisin’ Ales. Pours slightly hazy golden orange with a thick, fizzy white head that recedes fairly quickly to nothing at all. The nose is really great, with plenty of fresh, honeyed strawberry, a great sour note, and earthy white peppercorn. The flavor is the same with sour strawberry, a touch of spicy and funky yeast, and plenty of earthy white peppercorn. The body is medium with lively, almost sparkling carbonation, and a long earthy white pepper and strawberry finish.

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.

Bottle shared at Goose Launch. Very strawberry forward nose and some funky brett-like notes come out as it warms. Lots of tartness, young strawberry, vanilla cream, light honey and more funkiness on the palate. Tart and vinous as it warms. Superb.

Aromatisch fruchtiger Geruch von Pfirsich und Erdbeeren. Süß-sauer, sehr weich, hinter der Fruchtigkeit wirkt die Säure mild. Noten von Honig, Erdbeeren, mild hefiger Hintergrund. Spritzig, die Säure wird trocken. Intensiv, gut! 8/11/11/12/10/12
