COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ichigo Highway is a collaborative beer that we created with Hangar 24 Brewing from Redlands, CA. The base style is a sessionable sour red ale that we aged in oak barrels along with a whopping amount of strawberries, most of which were picked from the fields besides Hangar 24’s brewery. Aged for approximately 8 months, this beer has developed a pleasant funk and a delightful acidity that is balanced by the intensely sweet aroma and flavor of the strawberries as well as a unique dryness achieved by using a sake yeast along with our house strain along with souring bacteria. Available in November. 5.5% ABV, Best enjoyed fresh due to the fleeting aroma and flavor of the strawberries

Craft Clerkenwell Tasting. Cloudy light brown beer. Good pale cream coloured head. Smell pretty grim! Sweaty socks! Bleh! Palate is light and dry. Taste pretty much follows the nose but add dusty strawberry. Finishes dry. A stinker. As a Bruery advocate - I feel let down here!

brokensail (10808) - Orange County, California, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Turbid orange-tinted red pour withan off-white head. Huge strawberry aroma to this. Very nice fruit, lactic tartness, mild oak, some grass, and a bit of jam. Somewhat funky, too. Tastes of strawberry jam, lemon zest, and some grass. Nice lactic sourness, mild oak, a hint of earthy funk, and a very nice fruit character.

Leighton (10801) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2013
Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell - ’’thanks’’ to Ken. Pours murky orange with a quickly-fading cream head. Smells of stinky Danish cheese (which ranks among the stinkiest of cheeses, mind you), rotten strawberries, sour fruits. Light sweet flavor with heavy sourness, some funk, vinegar, acetic burn, dry and leathery fruits. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sour finish with more leathery fruits, sweat, moderate acid burn. So so. It looks bad and smells worse, but the flavor saves the beer ever so slightly.
