BULLFROG BREWERY'S LE ROAR GRRRZ CASSIS
 

"Blackcurrants are wondrous fruits. Lusciously tart and piquant, they taste like raspberries mixed with passionfruit. This intricate flavor makes them ideal for infusing into beer, as traditional Belgian brewers discovered when they blended the berries into Lambic Sours. But for American brewers, there’s one glaring issue: this delicious fruit is banned in the United States. Apparently American pine trees are not okay with blackcurrants’ particular genetic makeup. And when those European fruits grow wild, they decimate pine forests at alarming rates.
 
This fact didn’t stop Pennsylvania’s Bullfrog Brewery. These American Sour Ale pioneers had already infused raspberries, cherries, and strawberries into their beers. They had already broken into Sour stardom with Le Roar Grrrz, the #6 BA-rated Gueuze in the World on a list dominated by Belgian masters Cantillon and 3 Fonteinen. But Bullfrog is obsessed with creating authentic examples of this intricate European style, and they felt like their line-up was missing a classic flavor. So they found a way to get these juicy berries into their barrels, and finally released a blackcurrant version of Grrrz into the wild.
 
Behold, my Lambic-loving friends: Le Roar Grrrz Cassis! Bullfrog’s impeccable base beer is a balanced, complex blend of spontaneously fermented Sour Ales aged for up to 4 years in oak. Then the brewers age it with the forbidden fruit for an additional 6 months, developing tart, earthy, barnyard flavors that build on the palate with each subtly Sour sip.
 
So by all means, take pleasure in this blackcurrant-infused brew and share it with your most discerning Sour-loving friends. Just don’t let word travel too far. Otherwise we’ll have to go all the way to Belgium to find anything that matches its fruity elegance."     Sig Steiger - Tavour.com

BULLFROG BREWERY'S LE ROAR GRRRZ BLACK RASPBERRY
 
"Jack is from the Midwest, but ever since Ancestry.com revealed he’s 10% Belgian and 15% French, he’s been asking everyone to call him “Jacque.” He’s a die hard fan of Fruit Sours and believes that all the good ones come from Belgium. He owns more Cantillon glassware than most people own... glassware.
 
Searching for something new, he looks up BA’s Top Gueuzes in the world. As he suspected, Cantillon and 3 Fonteinen dominate the list, but to his surprise the #6 in the world was from an American brewery! Bullfrog’s Le Roar Grrrz. How could this be? The Gueuze-style Sour has to be barrel-aged for up to three years and then blended with a younger Lambic. American brewers aren’t putting in that kind of time and dedication into their Sours!
 
Jack goes into full Sherlock Holmes investigating mode. Somewhere on page 9 of his Google search he learns that Pennsylvania’s Bullfrog Brewery out barrel-ages some of the brewing legends of Belgium. They age their Le Roar Grrz series for 4 years! After that, Bullfrog blends the aged Sour with a fresh one for extra tartness, adds real fruit, and then ages it for an additional 6 months!
 
Jack’s mind is blown. He scrolls through a dozen different variants from the series looking for his favorite fruit: raspberries. He discovers that not only is there a raspberry (Framboise version) but there’s an even more rare edition, Black Raspberry Le Roar Grrrz.
 
Frantically, he searches for where he can get it, but it’s not found outside of Pennsylvania and he can’t even find one on trade forums, Bullfrog doesn’t make enough for anyone to part with it. Jack is out of luck because he’s never heard of Tavour."     Dylan Kasprzyk - Tavour.com
