COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A complex Belgian farmhouse ale brewed in honor of a lost beer legend, Walt Powell.

Saison de Walt is produced using a split fermentation with part taking place in a modern stainless steel fermenter with a Saison yeast strain, and part spending a couple of months in a wine barrel to be further conditioned by wild yeast strain Brettanomyces, lending a classic earthy, complex and sometimes almost smoky aroma and flavor. The two are then blended and Styrian Goldings hops, inspired by Walt’s favorite beer, Orval, are added. The Saison yeast produces a very dry beer with lightly fruity and peppery flavors which are enhanced by the addition of pink peppercorns in the brew kettle. This blends with the earthy Styrian Golding hops and barrel aged “wild” beer to make a subtle, yet complex ale that is light straw in color and very easy to drink. I hope every time we enjoy one we will be filled with fond memories and fun stories about the legendary inspiration behind it.
