Highland LAMA Legato Saison


Brewed by Highland Brewing Company
Asheville, North Carolina USA
Style: Saison | Ratings: 4 | Alcohol: 5.2%
One of the best things about living in a town like Asheville is that there is no shortage of musicians looking for part-time work. One day on the mixed pack assembly line, Jason Mencer of Now you See Them, noticed there was enough talent on the line to create a compilation CD. After several months of planning and recording, the Highland Mountain Medley Mix CD, and LAMA Legato Saison were released in February. LAMA Legato Saison uses a saison yeast and is fermented at a higher temperature to allow additional esters to develop and add to the complexity. Bittered with Styrian Golding and finished with Styrian Bobek, this 5.2%ABV beer is a refreshing reminder that spring is on the way.
