Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

(Served in a chalice)
2013 vintage
A-4 This beer pours a hazy lemon yellow body with a sea of microcarbonation and a sticky white film of snow white head.

S- 4.5 The light stone fruit pit aroma has notes of Brett white cheese rind and a dry woody gentle french oak quality with a dry green mango and pine note in the finish. There is the paper straws aroma of oak that comes through as it opens.

T- 4.5 The nice soft tartness is lactic with some full brett flavor of cheese rind and saison ester fruity qualities. There is some soft white wine flavors in the finish with a nice full but soft oak flavor lingering.

M- 4.5 The medium mouthfeel has a nice creamy texture and no real alcohol heat.

O- 5.0 The nice white wine character in the aroma is delicate with great brett character blending in and strong support from the fruity saison yeast and peach notes. This is a delicious beer that didn't last long on a cool summer evening.
