A Note on This Beer
Nestled between Belgian Gueuze giants like Cantillon and 3 Fonteinen in BeerAdvocate’s Top 10 is Bullfrog Brewery’s Le Roar Grrrz. This meticulously crafted, elegantly tart Gueuze-style ale has captured the hearts of Sour fans in its home state of Pennsylvania and beyond.
Today’s strawberry-infused version Le Roar Grrrz Aardbei earns a 4.20 rating on Untappd, with one user dubbing this tart jammy gem a “ghost whale” after years of searching. It’s finally time to call off the hunt and experience its leagues of natural strawberry sweetness and reined in funk for yourself.
Here’s the amount of time and care that went into crafting Le Roar Grrrz Aardbei:
- The base beer is oak-aged for 4 years, building a foundation of wild funk and woody spice.
- It’s then aged for 6 additional months on strawberries, extracting their orchard-fresh juicy sweetness.
- Belgian candi sugar is added just before bottling, creating a creamily soft carbonation that integrates with its sweet-funky-tart flavor trinity.
- It’s finally cellared for over a year to develop deeper levels of funk and tartness.
It’s not often that a Wild Ale so flawlessly replicates the sweet and delicate flavor of the strawberry. It’s even more rare for its jammy character to come through a body of balanced sour and funk, trailing off into a pleasantly dry finish. Bullfrog accomplishes all this in Le Roar Grrrz Aardbei, cementing their position among the finest crafters of the style.
