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"

Sampled @ bierkoning. Thanks for sharing rlgk. Appearance is weird, no head, and it looks like some kind of fruit juice. Smell and taste is quite fruity, tropical fruity, floral, sour. Quite lovely.

willisread (2162) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 9, 2016
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

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2015
Pours a slightly cloudy, bright golden orange color with a half finger white head that immediately fades leaving no head or lacing. Visible carbonation bubbling up. Vinous white wine barrel aroma with subtle oak and vanilla subtly integrated into the farmhouse yeast, light fruit and peppery spices. The oak is faint but the wine presence really stands out slightly overpowering the saison characteristics. There is some subtle musty, funky yeast but the wine, peppery spice, strawberry and other ester-y light fruit notes stand out. Slightly buttery Chardonnay presence with some strawberries and cream. The oak and honey are kept in check, and although it has nice wine and light fruit character, I wish it smelled a but more like a saison. On the fuller end of medium body with tight carbonation and a nice wine and ester-y light fruit presence that’s nicely integrated into the saison characteristics of the base beer. The white pepper and dry, funky farmhouse yeast stands out much more than in the nose. Sweet and vinous with grape and light raisin complimented by honey sweetness and estery light fruit. Strawberry and cream along with apricot, tangerine, apple and faint citrus acidity. This is countered by some peppery spice with hints if white pepper, ginger and coriander that goes well with the dry farmhouse yeast. Slightly earthy, grassy and funky with some light fruit and subtle boozy sweetness rounding out the finish. The appearance and aroma of this beer aren’t too impressive but I find it to be well balanced, flavorful, complex and easy to drink with a well masked ABV. Overall, this is a solid beer but nowhere near worth the hefty price tag.
