Ver 2012: Strawberry Rhubarb Saison 5.7% ABV.
Our spring seasonal from 2012 was a deliciously tart and dry saison using over 6 pounds of fresh strawberries and 2 pounds of rhubarb in the fermenter. A great balance of spice from the yeast, tartness from the rhubarb and sweetness from the malt, with just a hint of flavor and aroma coming from the strawberries. With the slightest pink hue to this unfiltered saison, the beer was perfect for the warm early summer months.
