Erve - Wild blonde ale with Mandarina Bavaria.
A thatched farm with an old horse barn, a handful of goats in the meadow, an orchard with yellow fruit trees behind the house, humid hay stacks in the distance and hop vines in the hedge. Scents of the countryside, an open-hearted temper, a beer without ornaments but with truly honest ingredients: that is Erve, our wild homage to the classic Belgian harvest ale Saison.
Erve is a refreshing, dry and rustic table beer with a subtle palette of Mandarina Bavaria hops that lend delicate green and warm citrusy notes. The characteristic aromas of our wild house culture and the added Brettanomyces have created a fascinating rural palette with lots of fruity notes. A hint of clove and black pepper roams through the beer. This 4th batch has developed a tiny tinge of sourness, which is balanced by a mild hop bitterness. Erve is the ideal beer to pair with a simple but hearty meal, or a beautiful ripe farmer's cheese.
