Biére Ambrée Parfumée au Tarry Suchong

Brewed by Brasserie des Franches-Montagnes (BFM) in Switzerland. This is a medium bodied amber ale brewed with smoked tea leaves. Didn't pick up much from the aroma other than the sweetness. Tastes of lightly burnt tea, sugar, a little honey, just a little smokiness. There was a bit of dirt, grass, and funk in the flavor, with a light sourness that I liked. Interesting twist on an amber ale, though maybe just a tad on the sweet side. Worth checking out though, for sure.
