This is a Belgian-style Saison that has been aged for over 12 months in a Louis Latour pinot noir barrell. Saisons are a Belgian farmhouse style of beer that uses a unique yeast strain. Originally this yeast most likely came from a winery as it behaves in interesting, unpredictable ways. It produces an amazing amount of flavors. Its complexity is unmatched casting off enigmatic notes of tropical fruit, minerals, earth and various spices.
After the beer’s initial fermentation we filled a used French oak wine barrel from Louis Latour that had held a pinot noir for several years with the beer. As the beer aged in the barrel it picked up intense jammy flavors from the wine, big oak from the barrel itself and became something completely new from being in the Cellar for over a year. This beer has a lot of character and is both intense and nuanced in flavor.
