Technical: Blend of 3-, 2-, and 1-Year matured Méthode Traditionnelle Primitive Beers rested on the stones (pits) of peaches, apricots, nectarines, and plums in fresh Chateau Montelena Chardonnay barrels. We added Colorado Alfalfa Honey as the priming sugar for bottle refermentation to compliment the 100% Colorado-grown ingredient terroir for this beer.
Flavor Notes: This beer is our instant passport to France. Imagine walking along the banks of the Seine River, approaching your favorite Boulangerie, with explosive wafts of freshly baked almond croissants and apricot jam interrupted by breezes of damp river stone minerality. Now hop on the train at Gare du Nord and head Northeast toward Brussels. Open your window as you pass through pastoral France and Belgium, with aromas of delicate honey, straw, and orchard-fresh peach on the palate. Bright acidity, lively carbonation, and refreshingly dry, you’ll wish to be an expat in no time!
