Green Flash Ochre Frumento will join the brewery’s Barrelmaster Reserve Series on September 17th. Incidentally, the strongest beer the brewery’s has ever released.
The base of Green Flash Ochre Frumento is a barleywine, that has aged a total of 6 years in both bourbon and brandy barrels. The final alcohol by volume is a whopping 17.5%, which is officially the strongest beer the San Diego based brewery has ever released.
It pours a deep brown and presents an aroma that is sharp and spirit-barrel forward. Prominent flavors of toffee and caramel envelop the palate, and supporting notes of ripened stone fruits with nutty complexity unfold through the finish.
The first release in the series sold out in hours – Lustrous Frumento with Coffee.
There are only 600 bottles of Green Flash Ochre Frumento available. Find it at the brewery’s Cellar 3 Facility on Saturday, September 17th.
Green Flash Natura Morta Boysenberry has expanded the brewery’s sour and wild lineup. The Cellar 3 Series features some of the San Diego, California based brewery’s fun and most funky.
Green Flash Natura Morta Boysenberry starts as a saison base, aged in oak barrels with boysenberry puree and apple blossom (the flower of an apple tree).
A dewy-fresh, sweet, tart twist on our Belgian-style Saison, this spiced ale offers notes of fresh-pressed boysenberry puree and apple blossom with a smooth oak presence throughout. The Brettanomyces adds a funky and slightly wild zest before balancing out to a smooth finish by earthy tannins from cellar aging.
Green Flash Natura Morta Boysenberry is a 750 milliliter bottle offering for a limited time.
Debut: Early June, 2016
The base beer for Green Flash Oculus Sauvage is a Belgian-style IPA/tripel hybrid, aged in red wine barrels with Brettanomyces.

A special tasting is planned for Green Flash Oculus Savage in the brewery’s Cellar 3 location on Saturday. Available in 750ml corked & caged bottles.
