Saison de Maison is fermented in barrel with a mixed culture of saison yeast, brett and lactobacillus before being blended and dry hopped, for this first iteration, with British grown Goldings. It’s got funk, fruity brett character, hints of gingerbread and pear from the dry hop and a refined acidity.
Bright carbonation and pleasing acidity lead into layered, fruit forward brett and hop character. We get funky pineapple up front with notes of gingerbread, ripe peach and subtle Perry pear. Gentle bitterness and herbal, woodruff notes meander into the long, clean yet complex finish.
Balance say “Drink this beer now to get the brightest hop character or lay it down for a few years to see where the funk takes it!”
