Weyerbacher Muse


Brewed by Weyerbacher Brewing Co.
Easton, Pennsylvania USA
Style: Saison | Ratings: 272 | Summer Seasonal | Alcohol: 6.2%
Our latest creation, MUSE, is a Farmhouse Ale with a distinctive Weyerbacher signature. Farmhouse Ales, by tradition, were used as restoratives for workers during the warmer months under the hot midday sun. Typically made with barley, sometimes wheat and oats as well, a Farmhouse Ale could be light golden to amber in color, but always with a dry, slightly tart finish, thus being a great thirst quencher.
Weyerbacher MUSE is light amber in color, brewed with barley and a healthy dose of raw wheat and raw oats as per tradition, to give it a mouthfeel thatís both silky and light at the same time. The wheat and oats add a bit of cloudiness to the beer as well, so donít be afraid, sometimes cloudy is good! A very special Belgian yeast strain was used to ferment this particular brew, and it was done at downright ďhotĒ temperatures, 78 F, in order for the yeast to develop its spicy profile that is expected for a Farmhouse Ale. No spices were added to this brew, its all from the yeast.
MUSE is hopped with Styrian Goldings for bitter, and Saaz for aroma, both just adding even more to the dryness of the brew. Putting it all together, you have a slightly spicy palate, with pleasant aromas and very dry, mildly bitter finish. At 6.2%, youíll want another one so you can ponder this intriguing taste profile, and you may find yourself wondering why you havenít explored Farmhouse Ales before!
