Beer Description

Mashed with raw spelt from Janie’s Mill, hopped with aged whole cone hops then fermented and ripened in used oak wine barrels with a blend of our house saison yeast, our favorite strains of brettanomyces, dregs from bottles that inspire us, and microorganisms sourced from my 6 year old sourdough starter. Levain is deeply complex yet spryly drinkable with a delightful acidity. You’ll find notes of limeade, lemon zest, lychee, mango, musky leather, earthy blue cheese, wet hay, pink starburst, papaya, black cherry, and a touch of oaky vanillin and spice. Aged on Yuzu.
