Saison de Rouge is a dry-hopped Red Saison that was fermented in red wine barrels with 100% Brettanomyces. This Saison will be very different than previous releases as it focuses more on hops, spice, malt and a little funk without the acidity.

Although it finished really dry for this malt bill, it still has a bunch of orchard fruit, starburst candy, orange and grape juice and lime peel on the palate from the dry hops (Mosaic, Citra, Simcoe).
