- A wild ale aged in oak wine barrels with Zinfandel grapes.
An exceptional beer brewed in wine barrels made from Zinfandel grapes. They are grown in the continental United States, and their quality depends largely on the climate, location and age of the vineyard where they are grown. After the first sip, there is a pleasant sweetness of grapefruit, tart lemon, light oak and vanilla. The scent is fresh and refreshing.
Brewery de Garde is located on the Oregon Coast. Their craft takes full advantage of historical traditions and local experimentation with locally produced ingredients. De Garde is famous for its wild beers, whose maturation is carefully attended to throughout a lagering period of 6 months to as much as 5 years. No lab-cultured yeast is ever added to ferment beer - all the necessary yeast and microflora populate the spirits in a completely natural way, spontaneously creating unique blends.
