Notes: The first beer released in our series of parking lot fermentation explorations with our buddies from Monkish. This saison features cultures from both breweries and was fermented in neutral oak barrels in our parking lot in Highland Park. We added about 1 lb per gallon of the locally discovered and native fruit called Holly Leaf Cherry. This fruit has a wonderfully thick and tannic skin that lends incredible flavors of cherry, leather, and plum. In addition to the fruit qualities the base beer has great integrated flavors of lemon, grapefruit, and musty wood.

100% Parking Lot Aged.

This one pours a nice slightly hazy orange, with a small head, and a good bit of lacing.

This smells simple but nice- lemons, slight funk, and oak.

I'm almost always digging this style of saison, as there's a nice fruity funk, lemony and citrusy, with grassy hops and just a kiss of oak.

This is light bodied, crisp and fairly clean, with a good level of carbonation.

This is my first beer from HPB- seems like they make some cool stuff.
