- and poached pears with dulce de leche.

Mouth: Medium Bodied, dry, medium-high acidity, moderate-high intensity, medium finish, salty, red apple, nutty
- Jacques Perritaz named his ciderie after the Vulcain butterflies (as illustrated by Gisèle Rime) that flutter above the orchards of Fribourg at harvest time. Jacques ferments with indigenous yeasts, then natural prisé de mousse in bottle. He does not filter or sulfur. His Belle Brutale is crafted with apples from an ancient orchard in Normandy and is a fiercely thirst-quenching sketch of bittersweet fruit and sea-spray.
