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.

Theydon_Bois (15022) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle split in London, 10/07/14. Murky pale yellow with a moderate off white swirl/edgeing. Nose is bitter citric peel, straw, woody notes, bitter orange, herbal effect, creamy vanilla, tarte white grape. Taste comprises farmy, lemon rind, grassy, vanilla custard. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a lactic tang. Respectable enough saison.

75cl merci Rich. 1st blend, bottled 05/30/2014. Dorée, paille, col disp. vite. Arôme sur des notes vertes houblonnées, rétro un peu fumé? malt froment avec un boisé mouillé donnant une impression de vieux-pourri. Retrouve pas grand chose d’un style saison, encore moins au niveau levure. Palais est aigrelet, funk, impression de pomme verte, acidulé, saison? râpeux en bouche et une profil aigrelet trop devant. Pointe minérale, avec un fini citrique pas vraiment plaisant.

Angelmonster (167) - Colorado, USA - NOV 13, 2015
Bottle is dated 3/30/15 Pours almost exactly same color as the label, a yellow orange hue. Body is hazy and bubbly with a 1\4 inch pearl white head. Head retention was average and lacing was great. Aromas are of classic saison, peppery yeast, witch hazel/clove, and some lemongrass. Pale straw malts are faint with light bitter, citrus hop notes. Not much alcohol at 5.5% First taste is sour lemon peel with a good dose of acidity. A little bit of hay/barnyard funk mixed with oak notes from the barrel come through. Sweet malt and wheat counteract the funk and tartness while clove/pepper yeast reminds you you’re drinking a saison. Not much hops or alcohol detected. Mouthfeel is light, crisp, and well carbonated. Body is thin, head dissipated rather quickly unfortunately. Finish was slightly puckering. Overall, was an interesting take on a classic style. Open fermentation and oak aging really set the beer apart.

Yellow pour with a white head. the aroma is full of yeast, lemons, biscuit malt and wheat. The flavor is similar, with some biscuit malt, apples and white pepper really standing out. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice saison.
