de Garde Brewing has released its newest incarnation of Cherry Raz Bu, a 4.4 percent ABV “Berliner inspired ale” that was refermented with both Montmorency cherries and raspberries in oak barrels. The beer was originally released in Novemeber 2014.
“This batch saw more extensive oak aging, lending a softer balancing oak expression and subtle vanilla notes to complement the bright fruit character, crisp acidity, and mild wheat,” reads a post on the Tillamook, Ore.-based brewery’s Facebook page.
In addition to Cherry Raz Bu, de Garde still has bottles of Fauxder (6 percent ABV), a “wild rye ale” fermented and aged in Chardonnay wine barrels, Saison Cinquieme (6 percent ABV), a “wild farmhouse inspired ale” that was fermented and aged in Chardonnay wine barrels before being dry-hopped with Amarillo hops, Peach Bu (4.5 percent ABV) a “Berliner inspired ale” which has been fermented and aged in oak barrels with “massive amounts” of Oregon peaches, and Hose (4 percent ABV) a “dry-hopped gose-style ale aged in oak barrels with coriander and citrus peel.” The brewery is also releasing “a limited supply of some pretty fun crystal glassware” which features a depiction of “the great mythical North Coast Cow-Whale.”
According to de Garde’s Facebook post, Cherry Raz Bu is packaged in 22-ounce bottles ($9) with a six bottle per person limit and is on sale now.
