American Wild Ale Aged on Cabernet Sauvignon Grapes and Black Currants in Oak Barrels
Cuvee De Tetreault 2018
Released just once a year on our brewery's anniversary, this American wild ale is aged on whole Cabernet Sauvignon Grapes and Black Currants in Cabernet Sauvignon and Bourbon Oak Barrels.
One of our boldest, most dynamic beers, Cuvee de Tetreault expresses powerful vinous forward flavors of black currant, sour cherry, and cabernet fruit supplemented by hints of tobacco, vanilla, and a fleeting, light roast. An underlying tannic structure from the whole cabernet grapes adds complexity and balance to the fruitiness and acidity.
As the beer ages, the fruit character will gracefully evolve, opening up nuances provided by the grist, our native New England mixed culture and the select barrels. Cuvee de Tetreault is a celebratory beer, intended to be shared with friends and loved ones to commemorate life's milestones and achievements. Enjoy now or cellar over many years for further development.
