A project that began 4 years ago, finally finds its final resting place in your hands. West Ashley Cuvée is a blend of four consecutive years of West Ashley (2018, 2019, 2020 & 2021). Each of those years were aged the entire time in Pinot Noir oak barrels with fruit. This is not simply a blend of base beer with apricots at the end, but a true blend of fruit, time and complexity like we’ve never before attempted and may never again. The result is something greater than the sum of its parts, even though those parts are pretty darn great in their own right. We’re beyond excited to unleash this special beer and to hear your response.

This one pours a somewhat hazy golden yellow color, with a small head, and a little bit of lacing.

This smells like very funky apricot, banana, vanilla, oak, and white wine.

There’s a distinct banana ester note that’s not really in the regular West Ashley flavor profile, so that’s interesting. There’s a soft but very funky apricot character, some oak and vanilla, citrus, and tart white wine.

This is light bodied, drinkable, with a manageable acidity.

This is definitely different from the regular West Ashley, and certainly a cool update on a classic American wild ale.
