an oak-aged ambrée ale with second-use berries.
We transferred an ambrée ale (kin to a flemish-red) onto the still flavorful, fruit we used in Knitting Circle Season 1, batch b for additional refermentation and aging: a wild berry medley of elderberries, huckleberries and golden raspberries. With notes of dried berries, figs and Piloncillo sugar, Amandine beckons the change in seasons ahead.
To date, most of our beers have been made up of a simple grist bill of Pilsen malt and wheat. Amandine departs that trend and leads the pack of farmhouse ales with more elaborate grain bills of caramel and roasted malts.
