Notes: We are pleased to be part of the resurgence of this method, and are particularly excited about this one particular style of beer that it’s able to produce (and thankful we now have the barrel stock and foeder capacity to attempt it). For the blending, we began with 250 gal of our Foeder Saison and added to it a blend of four barrels of 1 year-old 100% spontaneous MT (Méthode Traditionnelle) beer, and a small portion of 3 year-old MT beer. The result has a fresh liveliness, brightness, and mild supporting bitterness from the young foeder beer, and a mature acid profile, musty oakiness, minerality, and overall flavor complexity from the old spontaneous beer. Despite being unfruited, we also get big notes of under ripe peaches, stone fruit, and a grassy earthiness. It should continue to develop for years in the bottle, and we hope you enjoy this beer as much as we do!

Pours cloudy yellow from the bottle. Smell is full of the musty funk, some mineral earthiness, hay, lemon, and a healthy amount of oak. Very nice. Taste is sweeter, and has more fruits: lemon, orange, peach, green apple and maybe hibiscus, certainly flowers. Still grassy too, but all brighter and sweeter than nose would let on. Feel is little thin for wild ale, but has textures to cover plus a nice lingering acidity.

On tap. Poured a clear, golden color with a small, white head of foam. Good carbonation. It smelled funky with lemon, green apple and floral notes. Great funky taste with sour fruit flavors.

On draft at Funk Factory. Pours a slightly cloudy lemon yellow body, slight golden hue, one finger white head, good retention, bits of lacing. Smell is bright lemon, light toasted grain along with that sweet and slightly slick MT aroma that is instantly recognizable. A bit of oak and straw. Flavour follows, although a bit sweeter than expected, but fairly acetic still. Lemon, a bit of oak, sweet hay, a bit of leather. A bit more astringent and zesty than expected. Mouthfeel is medium lighter bodied, good carbonation, refreshing with a bit of astringent leather on the finish. Overall, a very nice change of pace from Funk Factory. Good funk from the Method Traditionelle blend, but the base certainly appears to stand well on its own.
