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.

Bottle... Pours murky and dark with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Great retention. The bouquet is spicy, a touch funky and slightly phenolic, accompanied by an undercurrent of caramel. Medium-bodied with a coarse mouthfeel and busy carbonation The flavor is tart and tannic with a modest measure of citrusy, lemony character. Finishes astringent and bone-dry.
