COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Saison is as old-world as it gets. We use 100% Colorado ingredients: Colorado water, malted and raw barley and wheat, Crystal hops and a yeast blend of saison yeast, brettanomyces and lactobacillus. We ferment the beer in custom-made open oak barrel fermenters. After this rustic primary fermentation, the beer goes to other barrels for further aging and flavor development. The result is a citrusy, dry, tart and effervescent beer worthy of sharing.

Prufrockstar (1955) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 9, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2016 Bottle from some place in Glenwood Springs on the way out of town. Dated 3/10/2016. Hazy gold pour, short-lived white head that’s gone in a flash. Aroma: oak, citrus, funk, rubber. Very light initial sweetness, followed by vomity tart, dry finish. Medium body, average carbonation, lasting slickness. Overall: this is a nice enough beer, but honestly, it’s kind of a let down.

NachlamSie (3244) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 20, 2016
Bottle, a cool gift. Pours a barely hazy yellow with a tall white head. The aroma is very funky and sour, yet cohesive and enjoyable. Notes of wool, goats, pepper, lemons, raw oak, hay, all hit the nostrils. The palate is super dry with very lively carbonation. The tartness is spot on and it makes this very lemony. Oak and barnyard dance around cheesy, peppery notes in the flavor. Balanced, complex, and delicate. It’s hard to pull this style off to this degree.
