Champs de Fraises (Batch 1) | Firestone Walker Brewing Company
Style: American Wild Ale
Description: We searched high and low for the perfect strawberry to add to our wild ale. We were not satisfied with the aroma and flavor until we discovered a unique variety from Oregon. It’s bright red flesh, sweet perfume and wild strawberry character is the perfect match for our beer, Champs de Fraises (Strawberry fields). A generous dose of strawberries were allowed a tertiary fermentation with a wheat based beer matured up to 3 years in 50% French and 50% American oak barrels. A fresh sweet strawberry perfume gives way to earthy funk, bracing acidity and malt undertones. A lively carbonation and underlying oak tannins create a thoroughly refreshing beverage. A santé!
