Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: sidetracked on 04-24-2011

Brewed with the Saison and farmhouse ales of Belgium in mind, we added fresh Georgia peaches and Brettanomyces claussenii to a fresh white wine barrel and aged the Saison base for 9 months. Stretching the boundaries of the traditional style, we decided to put our own little spin on it.

Formerly known as Mae.

A - Cloudy straw yellow, fair amount near white head leaves pretty quick, lots of cling. An inviting lookin beer.

S - Funk and sour dominate. I get an almost juicy fruit wafting through it.

T - Yes. Hits the back of my mouth with sour and spreads forward. Tangy. Nice sweet subtle finish at end.

M - Medium to light body, good carb and balance.

D - Could definitively do a few of these.
