Drink This Now: Fleur de Lis
Fleur de Lis is billed as a tart saison, but the drink has a flavor profile similar to a Berliner weisse. The 4.4 percent ABV beer is light, tart, and dry, with a soft malt backbone. The beer is kettle soured, then barreled with brewer’s yeast and two wild yeasts in washed red wine barrels, giving it oakiness, and a subtle, almost vanilla creaminess. First debuted in April 2014, Fleur is among Four Quarters’ regular offerings, including in corked, 750-mL bottles.
“If you hold onto a bottle for a year, the flavors will develop a little more.”
~ Brewer Brian Eckert
