Deschutes Pinot Suave

Deschutes Pinot Suave contains malted wheat, flaked oats and black barley

Part of the Bend, Oregon-based Deschutes Brewery's Reserve Series, this unique Belgian-style ale is a prime example of melding beer and wine.

Its 11.2% ABV is in the average range of a wine's alcohol content and it's aged for 18 months in French oak Pinot Noir barrels that contain Pinot grape must (the freshly-pressed juice that includes the skins and seeds). Other ingredients include malted wheat, flaked oats, black barley and U.S. Tettnang and Crystal hops. The result is a slightly sour, interesting sipper that brings complexity with notes of dried fruit, berries, tannins and acidity along with hints of tropical fruit and spice from the Belgian yeast. This brew will appeal to lovers of fermented grapes as well as those who prefer fermented barley. And like a fine wine, it can be enjoyed now or cellared to enjoy years later.
