COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brett/peppercorn saison

Thomas is the third installment in our “Bearded Farmer” series of saisons. In keeping with the farmhouse brewing tradition, the idea here is to brew each successive beer a little (or a lot) differently than the ones before it.

This Saison-style ale uses Pilsner & Munich malts with Wakatu, Motueka & Pacific Gem hops, and it is fermented with a single strain of French saison yeast

Pour is a cloudy gold color with a fluffy white head. Nose is very fruity and spicy, peppercorns, bright tropical fruits, grassy funky smell and clove. Lots of the spice on the taste too, banana, mango, yeasty esters, wet grass, and a nice saison funk. Medium to light bodied, great beer for the summer.
