Beer added by: ThatsThatDude on 02-05-2014

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Borne of our abiding friendship with Belgium’s La Brasserie de Blaugies, Pierre-Alex and Kevin Carlier brewed with us here in June of 2013. The resulting beer—brewed with hops from Mons, Belgium, and 30% raw organic buckwheat; fermented in both oak barrels and stainless steel; and aged for many months in those same barrels—is among the finest farmhouse ales we’ve ever produced. Vibrant, lively and sophisticated, its bracing tartness belies its elegant wine-like profile. We were honored to have brewed with Pierre-Alex and Kevin; we are delighted to share it with you.

Vinous and tart, with a slight funk and spice that compliment the savory buckwheat on the savory, earthy finish. Citrusy, crisp, and refreshing.

Everything I'm looking for an a saison. Tart, crisp, balanced, subtle, with wine barrel on top? Need this again so so much.

Ridiculously good. One of the only beers I've ever had that is worth the hype. I could drink this everyday and be happy.

Bottle shared by yourefragile. Thanks man!

Pale yellow body with a soapy white head. Aromas of white wine, white grape, oak. Wheat and tart grapes. Funky yeast with a clean mineral water character. Earthy and wonderful. Similarities to gueuze. Delicious.
