Saison   (Sold Out)

Alc/Vol%: 4.7           IBU:  15IMG_5337

Description:  “Historically, Saisons’ did not share enough identifiable characteristics to pin them down as a specific style, but rather were a group of refreshing summer ales made by farmers. Each farm brewer would make his own distinctive version”.   This season we grew an Australian wheat Wedgetail on our farm, to celebrate the harvest we decided to brew a seasonal beer.  The resulting beer is a light refreshing wheat beer with complex citrus tones and a slightly sour finish. A lovely golden colour with high carbonation.

We hope you enjoy our Saison……
