REFLECTIONS IN THE PRESENT – wild mixed ferm saison 4.9% w/ FOREST & MAIN A compound and fused culture saison brewed in collaboration with the elegant and dandy men of FOREST & MAIN. Starting with an undecorated grist of extra pale base malt, oats and wheat flakes producing an uncomplicated structure for a complex build. A free rise fermentation using a classic farmhouse saison strain is then blended with 3 separate wild barrel fruit cultures. A 5 month fermentation / maturation period leaves us with a spritzed up funky midsummer smasher. Blooming with crisp, clean cider barrel esters followed by a compounded admixture of acidic fresh orchard fruits. Crab apple, white grape, peach flesh and tart lime zest intermingle with aseptic farmyard tannins resulting in a crisp and bracing sunshine quencher.
