    Loved the last recipe but this one sounds delicious too.

    Just curious, but I had presumed when this series was announced, that there would be 4 Dichotomus releases per year, 1 per season. Was that just an incorerct assumption? Is there still one coming that is bottle conditioning?

    No Vernal?

    Just a guess, but I'd imagine there'll be a summer release this time around. Vernal would imply that it was brewed in the spring with spring-time ingredients (i.e. now)

    This might be a dumb question, but why do the Dichotomous series beers come out at the tail end of the season that they are "celebrating?" Winter is over now is it not?

    I think it's because they brew with the fresh vegetables from that season (brewed in December as they mention in their blog post), but then it takes a couple months for the beer to ferment (yeast chomping on sugars) and then another month or so to bottle condition (carbonate).

    This makes sense and I figured this was basically the answer, but it would just be nice if they came out a little bit earlier so you could enjoy it during that actual season. This is like the opposite of seasonal-creep.

    My favorite thing in the world is pairing a saison with dinner at home. Would've been awesome to, for instance, drink the Autumnal that I had with a nice roasted squash dish or something like that. But by the time it came out, fresh fall produce was long gone.

    Just be patient and keep a bottle until the fall! It will taste a lot better than the peach pumpkin ales we all apparently drink all the time.

    I think that's what I'm going to do, but I was a little worried about it losing something and I wanted to make sure I got the full essence of it. I know every Dichotomous beer is different, but have you aged any of the previous ones?

    Yeah, I had a 2014 Hibernal Dichotomous a month or so ago at a local restaurant. Still got watermelon and herbs...different than fresh, but still tasty! And the rest of the Dichotomouses are still pretty young, but I'm sure they will still be good for a while.

    Excited to see how this turns out. The last two Dichotomous beers were some of the best beers I've ever had.
