Rosarda - Rose BeerFruit Beer
The base is a classic Belgian white beer brewed with wheat and malted barley. It also contains oats, with a consequent smoothness; it is very aromatic with a clean, zesty fruitiness and a faintly herbal tartness.
The body is light but smooth and the flavours are complex, with a light, underlying creamy sweetness. The pure juice of summer berries is blended with this white beer and accounts for 10% of the finished product.
The rose colour of the beer comes from the natural juice of the berries. The other special ingredient is a dash of golden ale matured for two years in oak barrels.
This mature beer gives the blend an underlying subtle bitterness that "cuts" the natural sweetness of the fruit sugars and makes the finished drink very refreshing.
