Saison Man Bottle Release / 5pm / Trinity Brewing
Saison Man.This long anticipated golden Belgian Ale is a ‘Post Industrial Session Saison’, brewed with weyerman pilsen, rye, flaked wheat, flaked oats, spelt, and grains of paradise.Â We hopped this beer with Styrian Goldings and Czech Saaz to create a bitter and dry profile, then fermented this recipe with 2 farmhouse yeast strains and Drie Bretta to create spicy and light barnyard notes. 4.9% ABV.
