Born from a series of test batches begun in Gordon Schuck’s backyard, the French Saison yeast strain used in test batch #6 was utilized to become the Great American Beer Festival gold medal-winning Saison that sits before you. Considered our flagship, this tawny orange-hued beer pours with a rocky white head. Aromas of passion fruit, tangerine and black pepper first hit the nose before flavors cascade of orange, lemon verbena, ginger and pepper. Finishing with a dry and lingering bitterness that awaits another sip, this beer is complex yet easily accessible.
