COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This culinary delight is a rich farmhouse-style saison brewed with a generous helping of aromatic Turkish bay leaves and a dose of coarsely ground Tellicherry black peppercorns. The wild fermentation is finished off with cultured brettanomyces, which lend a noticeable sour note. As a collaboration between celebrated Louisville chef, Josh Lehman, and the brewers at Against the Grain, this beer highlights the interplay of cooking and brewing in a single glass. Complex, yet refreshing, this beer has a wild, perfumey aroma that prepares the palate for the tangy, yeasty flavor that mingles with spiciness from the spices as well as the phenols produced in fermentation.

Borresteijn (7491) - Zaandam, - FEB 10, 2013
On tap at Beer Temple. Slightly hazy golden orange colour, white head. Aroma of strong spice, like cardamon (probably the bay leaves), light Brett funk, lime. Flavour is medium sweet, light peppery, strong spice, again very cardamon-like and a little like eucalyptus, light lime, light tart, spicy and light peppery finish. Light-bodied. A bit too spicy imo.

Hazy orange beer, small cream colour head. Palate is airy and dry, good fine carbonation. Thin malts. Tangy fruits and ripe fruits. Saison herb, quite strong, bay. Fair dose of black pepper but it's very smooth and doesn't burn at all. A little dry seltzer and a slightly bitter finish. Inoffensive but it really wants something else going on, just drinking herbs and pepper gets tiresome quickly.

BlackHaddock (7696) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2016
And so it came to pass that six like minded people met on the 20th day of November in the year of 2016: those six people shared twenty five fine beers. This however was only split five ways: 75cl bottle. Dirty golden pour, weak white head. The nose had a honey lead, some mixed herbs and spices also. The taste was similar yet semi-sour even with that honey like base we all found in our bottle. Strange and interesting.
