House Saizon (for Fred Eckhardt)

House Saizon (for Fred Eckhardt) 6.2% ABV. A rustic farmhouse ale brewed with 100% local Riverbend pils and wheat malt and old world Styrian Goldings hops. Free rise fermentation with a blend of three yeast strains and bottled with a bit of Brettanomyces.
Bright lemony aroma with earthy notes from the hops. Very dry and minerally on the palate similar to a Pinot Grigio with a peppery fairly bitter finish. Just a perfect example of a traditional saison. The Brett will slowly add some interesting funk over the next 3-12 months.
It’s not often that light refreshing beers are suitable for aging but our care with bottle conditioning and the addition of Brett allows this beer to be aged for 3-4 years easily.305239971_3222420297972005_4519873177885241701_n
