COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We brewed this Saison-style ale with our friends at the newly opened brewery, Bottle Logic, located just down the street from our sour barrel warehouse. Being just as interested in style bending beers as we are, this not-so-logical beer was born. The base beer is a Belgian-style farmhouse saison, fermented with Brettanomyces, but that’s just where the fun begins. Our teams selected an unusual set of herbs to brew the beer with and then added as much raspberry and mango puree as we could fit into our fermenters. The result is a tropical Saison that is perfectly refreshing during this unusually warm California winter.

Theydon_Bois (10571) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2015
Bottle split at CBC Clerko, thanks to KTBP (Kenny the Bruery pimp), 06/01/15. Hazed orange amber with a decent off white covering. Nose is juicy citrics, peach, mandarin, mango, perfume. Taste comprises a floral presence, mandarin, peach, gooseberry, apricot. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Decent fruit beer I suppose!

On tap at The Bruery tap takeover, the Ginger Man, New York. Pours murky deep orange with off-white head. Strong fruit aroma. Sourish flavor with huge mango flavor in combination with other fruit. Hint of spices and yeast. Very interesting and pretty good.

Tasting at Craft Clerkenwell. Murky amber - brown beer with a big fluffy pale orange - peach head. Palate is light, dry and a little crisp. Light dry floral raspberry. Little generic fruits underneath. Whisper of soap before a dry finish. A bit odd but okay.

mR_fr0g (4373) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2015
Bottle shared at craft clerko. Thanks to Ken. Clouded orange coloured pour, bit murky, lasting white head. Aroma is spiced orange, coconut, little sweet cranberry. Quite aromatic / perfume bit soapy on the nose. Flavour is composed of sweet orange peel with a hint of tart cranberry, but perfumed and grain tannin. Palate is medium sweet, tangy grains, moderate carbonation. Lingering sharp harsh fruit and orange.

jkwood04 (4317) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 7, 2015
750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy, pinkish golden with a white head. Aroma of light sourness, mangoes and raspberries, some pale malts, hints of spices/herbs, light notes of funk, and something weird I can’t place. Flavor the same with the blend just not going perfectly. Average texture. Not bad at all, just a little weird.

Leighton (12611) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2015
Bottle shared in London - thanks to Mitch. Pours unclear gold with a frothy, off-white head. Smells like very fragrant ladies’ body wash, or perhaps lotion. Light to medium sweet flavor with some bitter citrus rind, perfume, more fragrant body products, some grass. Medium bodied with average carbonation. More perfume and herbs on the finish, some boozy warmth. Odd.

Scopey (7869) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2015
Bottle thanks to cloudy dirty orange with a medium white head. The nose is sweet mango puree, artificial raspberry, artificial stuff, candy, icing sugar and a touch of earth. The taste is smooth, sweet, mango puree, spice, straw, artificial fruits, wood, grain, earthy (brett?), berry, alcohol and damp leaves with a drying finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Alright.

Nice orange pour. Very fruity on the nose, but cant pick up mango. The mango comes though in the flavor very well though.
