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.

the beer makes me think about having sex in a peach orchard. it is wonderful. each sip makes me go "whoa". it is a wonderfully balanced sour with bright peachy notes. it is exquisite. I hope they do it next year so I can put a vertical together.
