Forbidden Root – Sparkling Rose Ale

Grapes have been used occasionally in beer since almost the very beginning, so we thought: why wait for an occasion? This dry, crisp Blegian-style ale is tinged with the luscious scent of Niagara grapes, one of the varieties bred from the wild Vitis labrusca grapes native to North America. Their sunny aromatic character punches right through the malt, while a bit of hibiscus adds a blush in color and a hint of crisp tannin on the finish.
