Sankt Gallen Winter Fruit Tart Ale
The image is like a tart cake, which is packed with fruits and baked.
The ripe "Ashigara fig" from the Ashigara district of Kanagawa prefecture is used. Since fig fruits are easily damaged, some of them are distributed in a young state, but unlike melons, they do not ripen after harvesting, so the soft and gentle sweetness of the ripe fruits on the tree is cut off. It is explained that it has a taste that sets it apart from the real ones.
This time around 110 kg of "in translation" fruit that was damaged before shipping was used. In addition, apples from Ina City, Nagano Prefecture, which go well with the sweetness of figs and have a refreshing acidity, are combined after being lightly baked.
In addition to this, lightly charred caramel malt was used for the base beer to give it a savory flavor like baked goods. In addition, a small amount of ginger and cinnamon are spicy accents. Alcohol is 5%.
In Europe and the United States, spiced amber beer is produced only for Christmas, and such products are also imagined. The official Sankt Gallen online shop offers free Christmas gift stickers, which can also be gifts.
