Sweet Leif is a Bière de Garde infused with Chinese Sencha Green Tea. The beer pours deep gold with aromas of earthy spice and fruit esters. Flavors of grass, toasted malt and slightly sweet caramel are immediately present, augmented by a smooth, medium body and a dry finish.
Biere de Garde
French for "beer that has been guarded", this beer style is a variation of the Farmhouse Ale that was traditionally brewed at the end of the cool months and consumed during the warmer months.
Often bottle-conditioned, the color can range from golden to a deep amber, depending on the type of malts that are used. The style shares the earthy cellar-like flavors, Noble hop aromas, and fruity esters of the Farmhouse style, but toasty malt flavors along with a moderate hop bitterness give this style a flavor profile of its own.
Best served either cool or at cellar temperature, from 46-57 degrees, in a stemmed tulip or large wine glass.
It's my pleasure to present a collaboration with The Brewer's Art, a Baltimore institution that helped to pioneer the Belgian beer movement in the States. Brewed with a combination of Spelt & Rye, accented with a blend of Heather, Honeysuckle, and Hyssop.

It seems that everyone knows the story of the Three Kings. Sent to follow the star in the sky each brought a gift for the baby they sought. One King brought Gold, the other Frankincense and the other Myrrh.
