For this year’s Fruit Ale Festival, Fort George decided to make a kiwi caramel beer. Kiwis are known around the world by many names, but our favorite is the Chinese translation - ""Wonder Fruit."" We made this caramel ale with Wyeast’s ""Forbidden Fruit"" yeast, infusing a sublte raspberry flavor. The Forbidden Wonder Fruit Ale has a lighter body that won’t distract the pallet from the layers of flavor that glide over the tongue. Even with all of these great ingredients and flavors mixing together, the Forbidden Wonder Fruit Ale is not overly sweet, making it a beer that everyone can enjoy on a hot summer day. 6.7% ABV
Style: Fruitcake Beer. Fruit: Cherry, Apricot, Orange Peel (maybe cranberry too). Description: Cherry, Apricot, Orange Peel and Ginger combine with this malty, caramelly beer to make Fruitcake in liquid form (not your aunts rock of a cake..).

Once again 10 Barrel gets fresh! Tonya took her award winning Berliner Weisse and added loads of cucumbers. The aroma is undeniably cucumber. The flavor is like biting into a crisp baby cucumber fresh from the garden. Just when you have had enough the tartness acts as a pallet cleanser leaving you ready for the next sip. Eat Beer! 4% ABV 17 IBU
