COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This culinary delight is a rich farmhouse-style saison brewed with a generous helping of aromatic Turkish bay leaves and a dose of coarsely ground Tellicherry black peppercorns. The wild fermentation is finished off with cultured brettanomyces, which lend a noticeable sour note. As a collaboration between celebrated Louisville chef, Josh Lehman, and the brewers at Against the Grain, this beer highlights the interplay of cooking and brewing in a single glass. Complex, yet refreshing, this beer has a wild, perfumey aroma that prepares the palate for the tangy, yeasty flavor that mingles with spiciness from the spices as well as the phenols produced in fermentation.

On tap at Beer Temple. Slightly hazy golden orange colour, white head. Aroma of strong spice, like cardamon (probably the bay leaves), light Brett funk, lime. Flavour is medium sweet, light peppery, strong spice, again very cardamon-like and a little like eucalyptus, light lime, light tart, spicy and light peppery finish. Light-bodied. A bit too spicy imo.
