COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The origins of this Saison go back to the 1800’s when saisons brewed in Wallonia were rugged, unrefined, and edgy. Going back to the original roots of Saison, we used a large amount of ancient spelt grain, vienna, and raw wheat. Another first for Colorado Springs, this beer was fermented in primary with wild Brettanomyces and lactobacillus, and a blend of two Saison yeasts to create a lightly sour, extremely aromatic, and spicy yeast profile. Being a ’Provisional’, this beer was both dry hopped, aged, and naturally carbonated for authenticity.

Nose is huge, tons of cinnamon, clove, etc. Taste is mildly funky, a hint of sour. It’s an amazing wild-ish saison. This brewery is killing it!

Thoroughly enjoyed this bottle from the brewery. A little pricey, but well worth it. Shared the bottle with others, but after tasting it, I wish I hadn’t. It was refreshing a light yet full of flavor, and it kept my interest from start to finish. Had just the right amounts of funk, barnyard, flowers, spices (white pepper mostly), lemon nips, sweetness and bitterness. Awesome saison.

Bottle from the brewery. Massive white head on a hazy straw gold body. Very spicy aroma with the yeast I’d expect but with sage perhaps. Similar body but brett thickness and a faint sour finish. Stellar.

(Draught) Pours a cloudy golden body with a medium white head. Aroma of sweet tart dust, florals, herbs, cereal, grain, and horseblanket. Flavor of herbs, methol numbing properties, brett, earthiness, some lacto, and grass with a dry finish.

BeerandBlues2 (13311) - Escondido, California, USA - OCT 19, 2009
GABF 2009. Pours clear light yellow with an average, frothy white head, mostly lasting with good lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (cookie, hay, straw, cereal, meal), light hop (flowers, herbs, grass), heavy yeast (sweat, horse blanket, barnyard, cheese, earth, musty) with notes of grape, apple, pepper. Medium bodied, sticky texture, lively carbonation, and a chalky finish. Long duration, light sweetness, acidity, and bitterness. Brettanomyces character.

Daft at SBR. Tasted 7/11/09. Pours a thin head, over a cloudy, pale yellow (SRM 5) body.....nose is ginger, clove, lemongrass...taste is strongly of ginger, mild malts...mouth feel is light. A remarkable beer.

Crushed with Jakebra at the Colorado Springs Saison Festival. Woo. Lavender dominates the nose and flavor. Kinda polleny, flower-petal throughout. Interesting, original, and tasty.
