A Note on This Beer
The masters of oak-aged Sour brews at The Rare Barrel suggest enjoying today’s strawberry-packed Fields Forever alongside blue cheese.
And they’re right. The puckering acidity and fruity sweetness of this barrel-aged Red Sour Ale contrast beautifully with the rich, funky, creaminess of the cheese. That’s not surprising — blue cheese and berries are a classic combination, and they packed this brew with real strawberries!
Let it linger on your palate, and you’ll also taste nuances of coffee and dark chocolate from a subtle addition of roasted malts. A touch of vanilla from the oak adds even more complexity. This is a brew you could explore all evening!
Although that might be tricky if you pop the top at a holiday dinner — once friends and family get a whiff of this stuff, your bottle may not last very long. Especially if you let them try a little sip along with a nibble from the cheese plate.
