Fair Isle Brewing- CHERRY PAULIE
12oz Single Can
BLACK SAISON WITH CHERRIES
Marrying the roasted malt notes of our black saison with the brightness of tart cherries, Cherry Paulie is a perfect easy-drinking beer as we head into winter here in the Northwest.
When we released batch one of Paulie last year, we picked up a distinct hit of cherry tartness from our house culture nestled into the roastiness of the grain bill. Wanting to bring out these fruity notes, we dosed a few kegs of Paulie with some fantastic cherries left over from Val as a draft-only release. We liked it so much that we decided to up the cherry addition this year and make it a proper release!
Calling to mind the malt character of a black lager, the base beer’s flavors of bittersweet chocolate, coffee, and dates are uplifted by tart Montmorency cherries grown by Rowley and Hawkins Fruit Farm in Central Washington. Balanced and sessionable, the fresh fruit profile comes to the forefront as the beer warms.
