Commercial Description: Oh Amber she’s such a Tart! She may look sweet but she has a sour side, in typical fashion she is fun and a bit of a flirt, you cant miss her when she walks into a room just think twice before bringing her home to meet the folks. Amber is quite fruity and a bit bracing with flavours of ripe apple and apple cider with touch of biscuity maltness. She is kind of like a baby Oud Bruin…but don’t call her baby she packs a good punch.
Food pairing as per brewery: Marinated fish or meat, salads dressed in a vinaigrette and blue or camembert cheeses.
