Tomorrow, Saturday, December 19th, Black Raven Brewing releases Raven De Garde, it’s Belgian-style strong pale ale, at the taproom in Redmond. Here’s the deal:
This Northern France inspired strong pale hybrid has gone through a six month secondary fermentation with the “wild” yeast strain brettanomyces lambicus, then dry hopped in order to meld bright fresh hop aroma and accent with aged wild yeast character. Pear and citrus hops play with tropical fruit, smooth earth, and light hay flavors from the wild yeast. Released annually.
