de Garde Première Desay
Fresh Hop Cuvée
Our ‘farmhouse’ inspired base beer, after aging for two years in large format oak barrel, was transferred into secondary oak tank with freshly picked Amarillo and Strata hops from Crosby Hop Farms here in Oregon.
The fruity character, derived from fermentation with our native yeast acquired during the beers rest in our coolship, was further embellished and underlined by the vibrant hops, melding into a potent display of citrus and tropical fruit, with a moderate acid profile underlining the fruit-forward expression. It’s explosively aromatic and distinctly delightful.
