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, Brewmaster 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
