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.

Mora2000 (5681) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 26, 2014
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.
