Champs de Fraises-French for "strawberry fields"-is an aromatic wild ale co-fermented with 8,000 pounds of Oregon-grown Mt. Hood strawberries. The base beer was aged for up to 36 months in French oak barrels before the fresh whole berries were added for secondary fermentation, resulting in an elixir like no other. Crisp and refreshing; pronounced strawberry fruit flavors with appealing earthiness and lively acidity.

We searched high and low for the perfect strawberry to add to our wild ale. We were not satisfied with the fruit aroma and flavor until we discovered a unique variety from the Mount Hood region in 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 beer matured 5-24 months in 100% French 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. Santé!
