Ommegang’s “Rosetta” – a wonderful cherry collaboration

Brewery Ommegang has just released their newest Belgian inspired brew – “Rosetta.”  According to the press release, Ommegang’s Brewmaster Phil Leinhart wanted to make a soured fruit beer but it wasn’t a possibility at the facility in Cooperstown.  So he collaborated with their sister brewery Liefman’s in Belgium and created a blended sour cherry beer.  “Leinhart’s recipe calls for a perfectly balanced blend of old (aged on cherries at least three years) and young Flemish brown ale (or oud bruin) with a lively and fruity kriek, or cherry beer. The result is a complex yet refreshing mahogany-brown brew that is an intriguing interplay of tartness and sweetness.”

At 5.6% ABV, Rosetta is available now in all 43 states that carry Ommegang’s products.
