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

Tap at the Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013. Poured a hazy light amber with a huge frothy white head. The aroma is fresh and a little yeasty, leading to a slightly sour, zesty citrus flavour. The palate is lovely and smooth as those gorgeous flavours slowly fade into the aftertaste. I really liked this!
