L'été: Our first bottled mixed fermentation saison
The time has come for the release of this year’s L’été, our summer seasonal saison. For 2018 L’été, we selected a small number of our favorite barrels containing aged mixed fermentation saison. The result is a dry beer with a complex Brett expression and subtle acidity, with notes of ripe pineapple, lemon, hay, funk, and oak. The beer in this year’s blend was fermented and aged entirely in used red or white wine barrels with a mixed culture of Brettanomyces and souring bacteria. AND this marks our first time bottling a mixed fermentation beer. After bottle conditioning with additional Brett for nearly 4 months, we absolutely love how this beer turned out. It’s everything we love about mixed fermentation saison.
Bottles of L’été are now available for purchase in our taproom. For this release, for the first time we will be selling bottles for enjoyment on-site, as well as selling bottles to-go. Bottles are priced at $15. We will also have our remaining bottles of Le Printemps, our spring seasonal saison, available for on-site enjoyment.
