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.

Thank you fonefan. 750 ml. bottle sampled @ Pre-Borefts Ratebeer Tasting 2016. Second Blend 6/25/14. Hazy pale milky citrus, white bubbles. Nose is weird milky barn, rotting fruit, spoiled yoghurt, lemon. Taste is milky zest, lemon, basic sour, spoiled dull yoghurt & good amount of aspirin plus some zest. Body is milky zest. Not getting the hype to be honest.

Bottle. Hazy yellow color with white head. Aroma is yeast, citrus candy, doughy. Taste is citrus candy, yeasty, quite sour, milky yeasts. Medium carbonation, silky mouthfeel. Too unbalanced for me, a bit too candy-like for me. I can understand why people like this one.

750ml bottle courtesy of a loving box from adnielsen. Thanks, brother. Pours a well hazed amber orange glowing hue, a decent darker dulled middle casts out with firmer amber glowing edges. A frothy offwhite head atop is a mellow decent film with frothy ringer atop that laces ok overall. Aromas show a melange of fruit, white grapes and wine meet green apple, pineapple, earth and funky yeast. Cobwebs, pear, jabs of tart fruit and more white and green grape, subtle funk and spicy yeast appeal. Mellow apple ester, pineapple, bready malts, cereal grains and spice. Really nice stuff. Initial is lighter bodied, bready malts and a bit of straw, funk, punchy tart sour crab apple and green grapes. Mellow funk, subtle oak and vanilla meet yogurt, mellow sweetness behind the initial brunt. Some punchy tart grapes, dryness, lingering vanilla, yogurt, earthy and grainy malts, straw, and cobwebs. A bit of stone fruit, fleshy apple and white grapes, white wine and mellow tart trail out. Punchy, tart, flavorful stuff. A nice sour and tart appeal, dry and tannic, mellow funk supports into the backend and finish. A bit of white peach, tart green grape, dryness. Really nice stuff with a pleasant, full nose, solid pour, punchy firm flavors without being acedic or harsh. Very nice stuff.
