COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ale with Strawberries, Honey, and White Pepper Aged in Wine Barrels

Inspired by an amuse bouche often prepared by the wife of one of our brewers, Scully brings white pepper, strawberry, and honey to a harmonious blend of mouth amusement. The ingredients are added at different stages to a Saison, and fermented with a normal Belgian yeast as well as a Champagne yeast.

Formerly known as "Scully"

2013 Vintage
Tasted on 6/29/14 from a capped 750mL bottle purchased at Bruisin Ales. Pours slightly hazy golden orange with a thick, fizzy white head that recedes fairly quickly to nothing at all. The nose is really great, with plenty of fresh, honeyed strawberry, a great sour note, and earthy white peppercorn. The flavor is the same with sour strawberry, a touch of spicy and funky yeast, and plenty of earthy white peppercorn. The body is medium with lively, almost sparkling carbonation, and a long earthy white pepper and strawberry finish.

Tognetta (813) - So Paulo, BRAZIL - JAN 5, 2017
Alaranjado de leve turbidez, sem espuma. Aroma bastante fcil de identificar o morango, acidez presente mas mais distribudo com o dulor do que a Lolita. No paladar a acidez mdia alta e crescente, bastante seca no final, leve dulor. Corpo bem leve e alta carbonatao. Final mantm o morango presente e bem dosado, acidez diminui um pouco com aumento da temperatura, paladar bastante agradvel.

Bomber into tulip glass, tad hazy clear golden color with off-white head. Aroma notes of strawberries, white vinegar, farmhouse funk, hay and some white wine. Taste adds strawberry juice, peaches, honey, green apple, some lime, sour, white sugar and some white pepper. Medium-heavy body, moderate-heavy carbonation, creamy, tad prickly with white fruity sour finish. Very nice fruity sour, love the richness.

draft sampler that poured a lighter yellow with white wispy head. the aroma was some slight funk some brett hints of fruit. the flavor was a little different than what I was expecting. did get some strawberry flavor on top but then faded to some brett and mild earthy funk. not my favorite style but this was pretty good.

Slightly hazy golden with a thin white cap. Really interesting dusty earthy hut strawberryish nose thats a little tart and floral. Crisp dry funky bretty flavor with nice strawberry and white wine and gentle tartness. Light peppercorn at the finish. Really cool, makes me think of Kats strawberry mango moscato by Arbor Mist she made us in Seattle.

On tap at the Knick. Bretty funky nose, oak, leather, yeasty esters and funk. Medium golden amber clear with thin head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Nice fruity ale with Brett and mild sweetness, good oaky-winey notes. A little watery at the finish with smooth after.

Pours a cloudy dark golden (almost orange) with a quick, white head. Yeasty (brett) nose with some sour, strawberry, and tart vinous notes. Active fizz, crisp and light texture with a dry finish. Initially a tart, acetic fruit flavor with a saline, dry champagne background and some slight mustiness. The honey is faint and seems to end up with the strawberry flavors. The briney notes evoke a gose and the tart fruit compliments it well. The alcohol notes are hiding around the finish and remind that it is 9.5%. Though RB lists it as a sour / wild ale, GI labels it a farmhouse. It works well as a hybrid. The tartness is present, but with a crisp, light dryness. It lacks the heavy slick texture that often accompanies a sour beer.

Bill Becker (877) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - NOV 21, 2016
Bottled February 22nd 2016. Pours a cloudy orange yellow with a small and quickly receding head of foam. Smells like wine infused with Brett. Strong Brett. Brett and tartness rule with some honey like sweetness interspersed throughout. Tasty. Very lively carbonation. A very good sister.
