Style: American Wild Ale
Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.0%
Notes / Commercial Description: Winter is here but EQ De Jamaica (Hah- My- Cah) transports us to a warmer climate. We wanted to play off the common aguas fresca drinks served on the islands made by steeping hibiscus and other ingredients to make infused beverages. The result is a complex and elegant farmhouse ale infused with pineapple, hibiscus, lime zest, and local honey from Honeybrook Farms in Pine Bush, NY.
EQ De Jamaica pours a beautiful golden copper yellow and releases an earthy and subtle tropical aroma. It’s flavor is a balanced tartness with notes of pineapple, light cranberry and hibiscus, notes of chardonnay, citrus zest all bundled together with beautifully light but integrated honey backbone. It has a balanced and dry mineral like finish that’s complex and full of depth with our pleasant funk. We find this wild ale perfect on its own or as a companion for food pairings with Friends and Family.
