Saisei / RebirthSaisei / Rebirth
Notes: Foedre fermented wild saison was refermented with Montmorency Cherries and blended with Sencha green tea and Japanese cherry blossoms.

As the final snow melts, spring’s first robins emerge and their songs begin to fill the crisp air. Tulips awaken, push through the earth, and the world begins anew. Created as poetry to express this process of reawakening and revel in it’s precious, tender moments, Saisei/Rebirth incorporates elements of early, mid, and full spring.

Blushing forth with scents of wild blossom honey, lemon peel, violets, and honeysuckle nectar until spring progresses. Trees bud, ducks return to scout calm nesting sites and the first harvest of green tea occurs in Japan. Known as Ichibancha or New Tea, this first flush is the most delicate; sweetly aromatic of freshly mown grass with subtle notes of tilled soil and a slight saline quality best described as ‘oceanic.’ Small buds transform into peak bloom of cherry blossoms and the bees get to work pollinating the new crop of cherries for the cycle to continue. A welcome portent of summer and the new world to come.

Had on tap. Copper orange clear body, thick white ring. Smells of spring cherry blossoms in the summer breeze, with playfully sour cherry fruit, wild honey, tea, oak, lemongrass and wild yeast. How come no one is talking about this one? It is inventive and delicious, the floral and fruit tones roll into the honey and oak, tea, grass, lemon peel, light blood orange, with herbal faint tones to round out the end. Feel is delicate, nuanced, decently complex, and lightly sour. Very drinkable but you don't want to rush all the hidden beauty it has. Really enjoyed this one, thanks Doug!
