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.

brokensail (11550) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Bottle @ 10K + OT. Thanks, Andrew. Hazy amber pour with a tall khaki head. Tart pear, green apple, and mango aromas. A bit of toasted biscuit, lemon, and spice. Has a good bready, toasted flavor to it. Mild sweetness to go with a pleasant, but mild, acidity. Fruity mango and pear notes, a decent bit of lemon, and a really dry, yeasty finish.
