an oak-aged ale refermented on white peaches
Claude exhibits delicate notes of peaches, vanilla and toasted almonds followed by a bright acidity. We’ve always enjoyed how white peaches complement our house yeast culture, but the soft tannic structure from the oak brings exciting new layers to Claude.
Made from our base farmhouse ale brewed in 2019 with @skagitvalleymalting, Claude rested in oak puncheons for nine months, then refermented with white peaches from @collinsfamilyorchards grown in Selah, WA for three months before being packaged in October 2020.
