After our Mixed Berry Sour beer was taken off the fruit I couldn’t bear just dumping all that fruit down the drain. So…we brewed up a petite saison and let it ferment for a week with the fruit and all the coolship-sourced wild yeast that was mixed in with it. Then we added our house saison ┬áblend and let that work its magic for a few months.

The color is fantastic and the head retention is surprisingly good. Definitely tart and venturing into “sour” territory, beautiful berry character with just a bit of funk mixed in. We couldn’t be happier how this turned out and hope you enjoy it as much as we have been.

Dedicated to Cynthia Robinson, the trumpet player and one of the founding members of Sly and the Family Stone.
