Notes/Commercial Description:
Cuvee Ange was inspired by the French Oak wine barrels we used for this project that once housed all French wine varietals. Fermented with wild yeast and aged in a combination of Cabernet, Merlot, and Grenache barrels with raspberries and blackberries, Cuvee Ange is a fruity, tart, complex ale. Cuvee Ange pours a bright rose with aromas of fruit, funk, and wood.

Poured into a tulip glass from a 22oz bottle.

Pours a hazy and murky dark copper color with some nice orange hues to it. Very little light can come through. There is a slight white head that forms of about half and inch.

Aroma of berries. Nice tart notes with some slight vinegar but still not too overwhelming. The tartness is very nice and fruity and mixes well with some nice slight funk and a bit of a vinous character.

Flavor is pretty delicious. I should let it sit for a bit before I continue. After warming for a bit. Flavor of berries with some nice tartness and some slight fruity sugary sweetness. There is some nice funk and woody notes that mix in with some vinous notes a well. The tartness is not too overwhelming and compliments the fruity sweetness very well. Mouthfeel is nice and light-medium with some dry notes and a slightly vinous finish.

Definitely my favorite 4 Hands brew. Great sour with some nice berry notes and sweetness mixed in with great wild ale tartness.

Serving type: bottle

Pour was a brigt copper, light head, light lacing, fairly crisp.

Very dominant raspberry and blackberry, lighter funk and spice. Hints of malt.

Very combination of raspberry and blackberry. Lighter hints of dry red wine and grape. A bit of malt and spice beneath. Layered very well.

Light and easy, dry finish. A bit sticky.

For a first BA release, homerun. This is a farmhouse ale, half barred aged with raspberries and half with blackberries, then combined.

Serving type: on-tap
