A collaboration with Coopers Hall Winery of Portland, OR., this beer was dreamt up to be a summer refresher, perfect for relaxing in the sun. Fort George brewed the Saison and Coopers Hall provided the Riesling. Co-fermented and aged in French oak barrels for 6 months, with a mixed culture consisting of wild saccharomyces, a few Saison strains, over 14 different Brettanomyces strains, and a couple of lactobacillus strains. The end result is a light funky aroma that leads into loads of fruit flavors like peach, green apple, pineapple, and melon, then finishes bright, dry, and crisp.
