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.

Batch #1, November 12, 2013 is the born on date. This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a hazy dark red color with a slight cloudy light amber color close to the edges of the beer. The head was about two fingers worth of soft white foaminess. There wasn’t much lacing following the beer down. The smell had a dried out tart raspberry aroma cherishing a light woodiness as the beer warmed. The taste was a dry and tart raspberry that ended up letting out a slight acidic lemon flavoring as it warmed which lead to a naturally dry raspberry to slight lemon aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium in body with not much of a sessionable aspect as there’s not enough balance in this one. Overall, if anything, I thank those who in charge of the Culmination festival for bringing this down to Juneau for me to partake in this offering I may never see again. However, almost like most sour ales I try, there’s just not enough balance in this one.

On tap at the brewery. Medium-amber pour with a white head. The aroma has some toffee notes as well as some light dark fruit notes. The flavor is similar. I get some nice cherry and grape character as well as some toffee and caramel malt. There is a hint of tartness in the flavor, but I get more malt than sour character. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
