The malt bill of this late 1800’s inspired Belgian ale consists of a combination of barley, oats, wheat, rye and spelt. For the fermentation we use a blend of Saison yeast with three older Brettanomyces strains. This beer aged on lavender French oak Chardonnay barrels. 6.5% ABV; pH 5.2; rare.

Sample at GABF. the lavendar and spic really come out in this. it almost feels like a triple lite with all kinds of spice and flavor. Pretty sweet finish. Different beer, but I dig it.

Bottle with a big thanks to adnielsen !! Pours a rich golden almost copper color with a thick tight foam. Aromas are big and complex... barnyard, rustic earth grain, citrus, lavender and some yeasty spice. The palate follows the nose but all the overwhelming aromas fall in line nicely with a layered yet balanced drinking experience. Nice grain bill holds up to all the accents and nuances caused by all the strange additions ! A pleasure to drink and a big thanks for sharing !

What is this crazy shit? A 4.5% saison with spelt and Brett and pumpkin and spice? Sounds like a disaster in the making. And yet... bright yellow pour with one finger of rocky white head. Nose shows lemongrass, a garden herb blend, lavender, and some lemony citrus. Taste adds a peppery element and a tartness. Dry and refreshing. Hell yeah. Thanks, Ethan.

Bright lemon rind pour with one finger of crackling white head. Herbal nose with notes of lavender and lemongrass and an ephemeral acidity. Spicy/peppery flavor with lavender and a musty herbal character. Tart and spicy on the finish. Light dry.

At Avery Sour Ale Fest 2013. Hazy golden with a thin bubbly white head. Nose is very floral with perfumey dandelions and hibiscus on the nose. Flavor hits the dandelion note a little hard, alongside some eccentric bretty dryness. Very full but very dandelion-y.
