“Fruitis The Farmer Beescake”
Status: Our Collection
Struttin’ and a Cuttin’
Another Funked Up Belgian style saison finished with
Brettanomyces. The grain bill includes Pilsner, Vienna and
Munich malts. The addition of spelt provides a crisp, dry finish
and 60# of honey gives it a complex sweetness and lighter body.
We fermented with a Belgian Saison yeast and then tucked this
away for 6 months in steel wine barrels where we added the juice
of hundreds of pounds of cantaloupe and honeydew melons. Then
inoculated the barrels with a wild yeast, Brettanomyces
Bruxenellenis to eat the extra melon sugar and produce funky
flavors. If that is not interesting enough we bottle and keg
conditioned (naturally carbonated) the entire batch using only
yeast, more honey and melon juice (that’s crazy stuff there folks).
The resulting beer is fresh, fruity and funky.
