COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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"

unclemike (2549) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - JUL 8, 2015
Pours a bright golden color with a frisky tight bubbled white foam. The nose is a complex array of strawberry, yeast, vinous acidity and a bit of rustic grain. The palate is light and refreshing with nice complexity. Pepper, strawberry, hay, vinous oak, bright acidity... a touch thin but very enjoyable.

Bottle pours hazy orange with lots of head. Interesting aroma off peach, strawberry, and honey. Slightly sweet and tart flavor. Somewhat fruity with a touch of cardboard, honey, and pepper. Medium body with nice active carbonation. Pretty good but not crazy.

Theydon_Bois (12736) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2015
Bottle split at CBC Clerko, 15/04/15, thanks to Kenny. Hazed orange golden with a decent off white head that quickly dissipates. Nose is pissy straw, citric rinds, light tropical scorch, mandarin, earthy, light yeast. Taste comprises apricot, funk, pissy orange, earthy citric, pink berry tang, modest acidity. Medium boded, fine carbonation with a light acidic burn in a tarte fruit compote. Solid sour.

Orange and cloudy pour from draft at Two. White head. Strawberry and peppery happiness. I thought the Halia I just had was incredible and this might be better.

BuckeyeBoy (3611) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 30, 2015
750ml bottle thanks to rich for bringing all the sisters. Pours out a hazy golden topped with a ring of a head. Nose is great wild strawberries sweetness and some nice tartness. Taste is more of the wild strawberries sweetness vanilla barrel and lots of pucker.

cpetrone84 (1705) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2015
Rating from 2013. Pour is mostly clear golden orange with a tight white head. Nose has a fair bit of grain and tangy yeast with a focus of leathery bret and some fruity bret in back. Taste is unique, body is medium with very strong carbonation. Loads of bret and fairly sour. Golden fruit bret with some citrus and a tangy yeast underneath. A good bit of peppery spice towards the back. Different, theres an interesting dusty cobweb mid palate. decent.

Bottle. Cloudy, the color of peach fuzz, with one finger of pure white foam. Beautiful, fantastic, superlative aroma. Honey is apparent, as are sweet, floral notes alongside white pepper, vinegar, a touch of bretty funk and a splash of fresh strawberry. In the flavor, too, are good things: Honey-drizzled strawberries, nearly ripe. Fresh-cracked pepper. Barnyard funk. A touch of grass. A spash of tartness. Tastes green like strawberry vines, with incredible balance. Fluffy, whipped medium-light body. Gentle carbonation. Has the perfect amount of funk, vinegar and fruit flavor. Absolutely delicious.
