BELGIAN STYLE FARMHOUSE ALE
Le Merle is a rustic ale, pale in color, inspired by the rich brewing traditions of the Flanders region. Abundant hops and a Belgian yeast strain contribute exotic aromas of tropical fruit.
For all she has contributed since the brewery’s founding, North Coast Brewing is pleased to honor our Merle, co-founder Mark Ruedrich’s wife, with Le Merle (the Blackbird), a subtle sophisticated Belgian-style Saison beer.
“Congratulations, Your beer is really amazing and you deserve your gold medal in a truly classic Belgian style.”
Luc De Raedemaeker, co-founder and tasting director, Brussels Beer Challenge
