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.

Thanks to Stormking47 for the share. Bomber into a pils glass, the brew appears a clear copper with a tan cap. Some sudsy spots of lace stick to the glass and a swirl revies some large bubbles from solution back to the surface.

The aroma includes faint notes of fruits that are vaguely reminescent of blueberry and raspberry. A mild suggestion of caramel grain is also present. While the description of this brew sounds awesome, the aromatics are pretty dull and linear.

The flavor has an unexpected aspect that is somewhat perfume-like. It is a little abrasive with a fake sort of raspberry mixed with an unidentifiable sort of obscure fruity to fusel character. A minor hint of cheese is contrasted by herbal to medicinal bitterness that is somewhat grassy.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. While this sounded pretty awesome via the label description, it turned out to be a flop. A very disjointed strange brew that I would probably not buy but I would give it a try again just to see if the bottle we had was an exception to what this brew was suppose to be.
