COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ambrée was inspired by the rustic farmhouse ales of French Flanders, particularly those brewed by Brasserie Thiriez in Esquelbecq — one of our favorite breweries in the world. Ambrée is a dry, tart, naturally conditioned amber ale fermented and matured with dozens of different strains of brewers’ yeast, native wild yeast, brettanomyces yeast, and souring bacteria. It’s 6.4% alcohol by volume, has a finishing gravity of 1.005, and is 3.5 pH.

Bottle, thanks jack for sharing. This was okay. Kind of like a funky biere de garde/ Belgian amber. To me it tastes like an infected amber ale which, in some way or another, is actually exactly what it is. Not a huge fan.

Bottle copped from the D Q. Poured into Prarie Teku glasses with a friend. Light brown in color with little to almost no head. Aroma of slight funk and some sour. Tastes slightly funk and tart then malt comes in with a little hop note then finishes tart. Another solid brew from Jester.

Beerenberger (1545) - Fischer, Texas, USA - FEB 8, 2015
On tap @ Jester King. Aroma is predominately earthy funk. Delightful. Pours a tea-like brown with an off white ring and spotty lacing. The taste earth, Brett, sourness.is there but not overwhelmingly so. Medium-light body and medium carbonation. Overall, a very enjoyable and well crafted farmhouse brown and would go well with a vegetarian meal.

(750ml bottle) Pours an amber body with a moderate cream head. Aroma of nuts, caramel, barnyard, earthiness, and toffee. Flavor of citrus, brett, nuts, roasted grain, and caramel with a dry finish.
