A Note on This Beer
Today’s brew might just be the Wildest Ale of the Wild West!
La Baie Sauvage, or “the wild berry,” is a Lambic aged on huckleberries. This untamed fruit is similar to blueberries and has yet to be successfully cultivated anywhere in the world!
Consequently, the particular huckleberries the world-class crew at pFriem used in the brew had to literally be foraged in Gifford Pinchot National Forest in southern Washington!
But first, the brewers started with a Lambic aged in oak for two years. Then they added the elusive berries, allowing them to ferment for six months. Finally, they bottle conditioned La Baie Sauvage with champagne yeast for a scintillatingly effervescent sip.
Notes of bright, luscious jam and piney juniper intertwine with tart, tangy nuances of lemon zest and pineapple. Whispers of oak carry underneath until a refreshingly crisp finish.
Feeling generous? Snag an extra bottle and wow your Wild Ale loving pals with a bit of Western swagger from some of the most notorious brewers this side of the Mississippi.
The Beer Connoisseur calls pFriem "unequivocally the best brewery of all time.”
