Description

Le Coq is a blend of sour rye beer that is aged up to two years in Banyuls barrels and to which we add, for a period of one month, 450 pounds of sour cherries.  As a result of this process, this proud and robust amber coloured beast presents lambic aromas with undertones of sour cherry and barley candy.  As soon as dawn breaks, its light body starts singing sharp but generously fruity notes, a gripping combination that awakens the senses.  All of these flavours stretch out to a slightly oxidative vinous finish. This beer will keep you coming back for more!
