done in collaboration with ferment in hood river, which is where i had this on tap. its done with both of their yeasts, some brett in the mix from the dwinell side, a subtle but unique saison type from ferment, and the beer has peaches and green tea in it, really complex and different, and just delicious, among my favorite beers i had in here, and certainly the most complex. the peach is neat in here, its subservient to the fermentation profile, which i really dont mind i something this unique, its fresh and it retains some of its sweetness, very natural in this, somewhat understated, but amazing with the brett, almost like it contributes some fermenting agents of its own here, there is just this magic organic sort of synergy to it, incredible. the tea is really subtle, adds some useful bitterness late, a soft floral character that is picked up by the estery saison yeast in here, but not a major flavor contributor, at least for me. i get a little rye on the grain side, raw wheat, very much a rustic character, and overall this seems more farmy and less refined than the other beers i had at ferment. it doesnt hold much head, looks pretty cloudy, and lacks on carbonation just a bit. the flavors are awesome though, the mixed fermentation is way cool, and the little bit of tartness it has makes the peach pop at the end. overall delicious and distinctive, a fun collaboration between two breweries i knew nothing about before our recent trip but have since fallen in love with. i hope they bottled this one, because it seems like something with a ton of potential to age well in a cellar. it was a treat to try!
