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.

KyotoLefty (8369) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 3, 2016
Bottle. Nose of dust, caramel, raisins, coffee, and a bit of bandaid and glue. Quite sour--more than expected--with green apples, minerals. A bit too medicinal and astringent. Weird, interesting stuff, but not quite right.

4/VII/15 - 75cl bottle @ RBBSG IV - BB: n/a, bottled: X/9/14, batch #2 (2015-880) Thanks to ElManana+1 for sharing the bottle!

Clear amber to red brown beer, small creamy irregular off-white head, unstable, non adhesive, dissipates immediately. Aroma: very fruity, bit dirty, band-aid, chemical, rubbery touch. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: very sourish start, funky, chemical, rubbery, band-aid, some vinegar. Aftertaste: bit fruity, dirty, skunky, infected, vinegar, unpleasant bitterness. Another failed attempt at sour ale by the Americans... or how patriotism can cloud opinions... And of course 77ships is digging it. Says enough, I guess. :p
