St-André-Claymore aux cerises
Though brown at first glance, upon closer examination you discover a ruby red beer which can sometimes elude you beneath its unfiltered veil. Its scent is dominated by malt and caramelized sugar but also lets through an aroma of fruit that recalls cherry or blackcurrant. Upon the first sip, you are caught by surprise by a sudden rush of alcohol, which quickly gives way to flavours of Scottish caramel and candied fruit and lead to a generous, ample and textured finish. The head clings to the glass following each sip, much like the person drinking it! This version of the St-André was patiently macerated with Morello cherries from the village Charette in the Mauricie region. This process emphasizes this nectar’s existing candied fruit taste.
