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.

Excellent saison here. Pours hazy golden with a small white head. The aroma has spice, peach, farmhouse yeast, oak, mild caramel, a touch of bugs and some vanilla. It has a light crisp body with mild sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with saison spiciness, pepper, light brett, bugs, some woody oak and really nice balance to everything. The finish has nice spice and citric acid. Quite well done.

Bière dégustée chez Alexandre Mathieu. Merci man! Bière jaune paille, presque blanche, voilée et moyennement mousseuse. Nez plutôt sauvage de Brettanomyces, de citron et de grains de blé jeunes et légers. Une quantité appréciable de bois fait également partie de la fête. Surette, cette bière au goût de citron évolutif, garde constamment ce goût de pommette vertes tout au long de son parcours. Le citron est d’abord acide pour se révéler petit à petit pétillant et même un peu salé. À cela s’ajoute d’importantes notes céréalières. Aucun arrière-goût, amertume plus que subtile, c’est une bière quasi matinale par une journée chaude d’été.
