COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This saison is brewed with a significant amount of local alfalfa honey, producing delicate floral notes, a soft honey sweetness and a dry finish. A short time aging in oak wine barrels adds layers of complexity. 100% brettanomyces fermentation.

Editor’s Note: Bottled versions of this beer as well as draft version at GABF were barrel aged. Recent 2014 kegs at the brewery are not barrel aged.

Bottle - Pour is murky gold - there’s a feint white ring in this glass - it retains poorly. The nose reveals lemon rind and floral notes, with honeycrisp sweetness rounding things out. The flavor profile is the highlight here - it begins with a lemongrass funk, but this is a palate adjuster initially - for sure. A few sips in and you’re adjusted properly to the tartness of this one. It’s soft, floral, light honey notes - moving forward to more lemon tart. It moves forward to white wine and a dry finish line. The brett is light here, and there is some feint lactic - Anyway - this was a nice experience.
