In July of 2015, our dear friends Daniel Thiriez and Marielle Paquet of Brasserie Thiriez joined us at the brewery, so Shaun and Daniel brewed a barrel-fermented wheat and oat ale on the small system. This edition of Works of Love aged and matured over the course of six months in oak barrels, developing into an elegant, sophisticated representation of the friendship and respect shared between our two breweries.

This one pours a slightly hazy golden yellow color, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like funky pear, clove, citrus rind, white wine, and fresh cut grass.

This is definitely somewhat of a forgotten entry in this series. It's still holding up well, despite the age. I have no idea if it's fallen off at all, as I never had it fresh. It leans more Belgian-ish than the typical HF saison, with less tartness and more dry clove/pear like funk to it. There is some acidity, but nothing intense at all. There's a nice pleasant grassiness to this, with a hint of stone fruit rind, and a dry yeastiness.

This is light bodied, clean, with a soft and light mouthfeel. There's a very nice drinkability to it.

It was a wonderful opportunity to try this old dusty beer. It's held up much better than it should've, given the age.

Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow golden color with white fizzy head. Funk, citrus, tartness, some light and dark fruits on the nose; follows onto the palate. Light bodied. Finishes funky with plenty of tartness.
