Tasting Notes: Rose petal, wildflowers, melon rind, tropical fruit
"Layered, balanced, approachable. This puncheon-aged, mixed-grain Brett Saison expresses some of our favorite qualities of Saison, along with a beautiful demonstration of Oak maturation and Brett refermentation. The base beer began as a Saison fermented with native Virginia Saison yeast. A rustic grist of Buckwheat, Spelt, Triticale, and Wheat blended with a foundation of regionally-grown and malted Pilsner malt. Low hopping and a long stainless fermentation led to a period of maturation in puncheons, large format Oak barrels. A blend of house-cultured Brettanomyces was added and the beer was allowed to develop in wood for three months. Upon transfer out of Oak, the subtle floral and peppery presence of the yeast had transformed to a bouquet of tropical fruit and mild earthy funk. Bottle conditioning further developed the nuance of this beer that continues to age gracefully and mature in the bottle. A delightfully complex beer that we are always excited to share, especially On A Day Like Today."
