10 Barrel Brewing Co. Huckle Bière Grand Cru

What the brewers say

“Belgian-style wild sour ale with huckleberries.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Rich wine-like berry sour reminiscent of red grapes and dark flavorful berries. Well-rounded complexity from the malt adds some bready and toasted qualities. Dried red fruit, oak, dark chocolate malt, and tobacco. A bit of Brett funk.”

Flavor: “There's a rich dark berry and wine-like complexity that reminds me of fighting grizzly bears in northwest Montana for elbow space in a huckleberry patch. Like red wine with dark cherries and blackberry with a bit of toasty and chocolate malt character. Low sweetness, moderate to high acidity. Dry. Sour hits in the swallow and kicks the fruit into the retronasal experience. Mild hint of Brett funk.”

Overall: “Complex dark red fruit with toasty and chocolate malt. A Flanders character in the base beer with a really interesting intense dark fruit character. Great complexity from both the base beer and the berry.”
