Samuel Smith Organic Strawberry
Fruit Beer
Melbourn Brothers All Saints Brewery / Stamford, Lincolnshire, England

This fruit beer is crafted at the small and historic Melbourn Brothers All Saints Brewery in Stamford, Lincolnshire, England, and then blended, conditioned and packaged at Samuel Smith's The Old Brewery in Tadcaster, the oldest in North Yorkshire. Not much has changed since the All Saints Brewery began producing beer in 1825. Its manually operated equipment is still in use today and includes an ancient grist mill and copper brewing vessels. The Lincolnshire region is known for producing excellent fruit such as the organic strawberries used in this ale. The bouquet of this beer boasts the authentic scent of fresh, ripe strawberries. It is spontaneously fermented with wild yeast, and while the complex yeasts contribute toward tart and sour flavors similar to a Belgian lambic, strawberry juice adds some sweetness to the balance. Strawberry, though a bit subdued, is the dominant flavor, and is further balanced by a creaminess and a touch of bitterness from the hops.

Price: $5.99 for 18.7 oz
5.2 percent ABV
