We're totally Frucht around here. In fact, we may just be filled to the brim, with excitement, that is. Our threshold is 250 BBLs, to be more precise. That's the total capacity of each new oak foeder at Bruery Terreux. One is dedicated exclusively to Frucht, our new series of fruited Berliner Weisse-style beers. Known for a tart flavor profile and traditionally low ABV, our new German-style wheat beer gains even more funky notes and natural earthy-woodiness from its fermentation in the large oak foeder vessel.
Each installment in the series will feature a new fruit, or Frucht, if we're Sprechen sie Deutsch. This first installment has passion fruit added, which escalates the tartness, tropicality and palate-cleansing prowess of the base beer. Prost!
FOOD PAIRING: German-style cheese (butterkäse for contrast; Weisslackerkäse for funk) underneath an oak tree. Zwiebelkuchen (or your favorite quiche) for breakfast, tarte flambée for dinner, a lunchtime concert in between.
This is a stunning new selection from California-based The Bruery's new brand, Bruery Terreux. The Frucht series will feature a Berliner Weisse-style beer that's brewed in a dedicated oak foeder with a different fruit each time. This first installment is brewed with passion fruit, which harmonizes perfectly with the base style's inherent tart profile and the earthy and funky notes that are derived from the fermentation in oak. Tart passion-fruit aromas and flavors abound, with complementary notes of pineapple, mango, yogurt, green apple, fresh grass and lime leaf. Light in body and brisk in carbonation, the palate is bright and mouthwatering, finishing crisp and clean.
