Fred Sauvage (5.8% abv) is described as follows:
Fred Sauvage is back but this time we put all our eggs in Heeman’s raspberry basket, trusting this batch of beer completely to the wild yeast and microbes found on their delicious berries. Over 200 lbs of raspberries were puréed and mixed with fresh wort, then left to spontaneously ferment with whatever magic Mother Nature gave to the beer. And you know what? The high-stakes risk payed off. Almost four months later, the result of this wild fermentation is a tart and funky raspberry ale, complex with a myriad of flavours that the micro flora of Heeman’s delicious raspberry fields bestowed upon the brew. Fred Sauvage is a unique summer brew made with fruit, friends, and love.
Fred Sauvage is available now at the Forked River retail show and online store while supplies last.
