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.

765 ml bottle, 2013 Vintage, stamp on label says bottled on 0733, 12AUG13. Served in a Prairie Teku glass, the beer pours a hazy gold color with about an inch white head that fizzled away quickly. However, there's a lot of lacing. The brew smells like lemon peel, peaches, white wine, oak, and some funk. I think the taste is just like the aroma, but there's the addition of some green grapes/grape skin. It's also nice and tart. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's refreshing, a bit coating, and has a good amount of carbonation. I liked this a lot, but it's pricey at $20.99 a bottle. Definitely worth trying!
