Brewed in collaboration with Austen Conn, formerly of Buoy Beer. This mixed culture saison was fermented in barrels with tons of saison yeast, wild saccharomyces, tons of brettanomyces strains, and lots of lactobacillus to create a funky and tart beer. After a year in the barrel, we added freshly zested Meyer lemon peel, orange peel, and basil to the barrels to condition for another month. The result is a bright, fruity, and crisp saison-inspired beer that’s refreshing to drink year round.
Brewed by Dave Coyne and Austen Conn, this Sweet Virginia Series batch was barrel fermented and aged in French Oak Barrels for 13 months.
Pale gold in appearance, this beer has aromas of bright, earthy funk and citrus oils. Tart, citrusy, fruity and candy0like flavors are rounded out by a dry, crisp finish.
