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"

Craft Clerkenwell. Bruce’s UK Swan Song. Hazy gold beer, no real head. Palate is light, semi dry, mild fine carbonation. Mild lemon and a little Worcester sauce. Touch of red wine. Little floralness. Light dry finish. Overall slightly acid but it’s pretty drinkable.

Thanks Ken, you are a beautiful man! Pours golden and hazy with a white head. Smells like candy and feet...not my feet, possibly yours, but not in a bad way, unless your feet stink. Sour fruit, unripened strawberry. Taste is tart adn tangy, Chardonnay, touch of wood, no feet or candy or even candy feet. Medium feel overall a very nice beer

Bottle. Pours out a moderate golden color with little to no head. Aroma is of a lot of loral notes, funky yeast, light spices and tart/sweet strawberry. Taste is complex, sweet floral/fruity strawberry, light funky yeast, pepper, some tart/funky/light herbal notes with some touches of tartness. Solid GI beer.

765 ml bottle, 2013 edition, bottled on 12SEP13. I’ve had this sitting around a while now, and figured I might as well get around to drinking it. Served in a Prairie Teku, the beer pours a hazy dark gold color with about a half inch white head that fizzled away quickly. Pretty much no lacing at all. Aroma is fruity and tart, the brew smells like strawberry, white wine, lemon peel, oak, hay, and a bit of peppery spice. I think the taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s also the addition of some green apple, funk, lime and some honey. There’s a good amount of tartness, but also some sweet fruitiness too (mostly strawberry). Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it’s a bit coating with a moderate amount of carbonation. The 9.5% ABV is well hidden! Overall I liked this brew, and thought it got better the longer I drank it. However, with the $26.99 a bottle pricing I don’t think I’d buy it again at that price. Still, it was nice to try this once.
