Notes/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.

one of the more interesting jester king offerings, although i suppose they all have my interest. this, like so many other beers out there, falls somewhere between a flanders red and an oud bruin in style and flavor, although instead of blending the two, teasing one with the other, or just tossing around style terminology, this one does something different with that gray area between them. it smells like a flanders red, lactic almost vinegar character, oaky too, but the flavor is all darker roast grain, more akin to the oud bruin. its not just lacto though, there is really appreciable brett character in this brew, from start to finish. its a sensory transition from one to the other, a pleasant and patient journey, and one i look forward to taking again some day. the appearance was unconventional too, brown suds flowed out of the bottle slowly when it was opened, but the head on the dusty brick red brew was cream colored, a strange byproduct of this crazy yeast they have down there in austin. full bodied and quite sour as it warms up, i liked this a lot, for being familiar and different at the same time. nice with grilled pork. thanks to drlovemd87 for bringing this one over.
