We got super fancy with our procedures in the brew house on this Saison. Brewed with the rare ‘chit’ malt, spelt, rye, raw wheat and barley; a noticeably high in protein mouth feel is apparent. Employing a double fermentation, we first used lactobacillus bacteria in a hot fermentation to dramatically lower the pH and create a refreshing sour note. After the hot fermentation, we boil the wort and move it into a fermenting vessel for the second ‘cool’ fermentation using Saison yeasts and wild Bretta. After fermentation we age the batches on apples to create a extraordinary and ground breaking beers. Please enjoy the playful levity of fruit as it dances elegantly with a refreshing acidity across your palate.

On tap at Old C's in Colorado Springs. Pours like pineapple juice with a trim white head. Smells and tastes of straw grain, tart applesauce, and faint cinnamon. Different.

Tap. Pours hazy gold with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is apple, Lactobacillus, straw and meal malt, spicy hops. Flavor is funky apple, malt, farmhouse, Lacto and Brett with a dry finish. Light body and carbonation.
