Brasserie de Jandrain-Jandrenouille Jandrain IV Saison (80)

“Blonde beer, unfiltered, unpasteurized, and fermented in the bottle. This beer is brewed with only the four basic ingredients (water, malt, hops, yeast). Jandrain IV used different hops to give it its special character.”

Brasserie Dunham Saison du Pinacle (81)

“Hoppy farmhouse ale brewed with rye, oats, and wheat and hopped with Australian and American hops. Fresh, lively, and hoppy when young, this beer also benefits from a bit of aging to reveal its _Brettanomyces_ character of farmhouse funk.”

Stone Brewing Company/Dogfish Head Brewery Saison du Buff (82)

“This saison has been infused with a herbaceous blend of locally harvested sage, lemon thyme, rosemary, and parsley and dry-hopped with Citra hops for a refreshing finish.”

Odell Brewing Company Prop Culture (82)

“We experimented with PROPagating different combinations of Belgian yeast CULTUREs and blending them in specific primary and secondary fermentations. We let the *Saccharomyces* cultures do the heavy lifting by converting the bulk of the wort sugars while the *Brettanomyces* cultures did the fine tuning to round out the flavor profile. The result of our experimentation led to PROP CULTURE, a project of 10+ yeast strains working together to create a fruit-forward collage of flavors such as pineapple, pear, mango, and banana balanced by a clove-like spiciness.”

Springdale Beer Co. Melange De Mures (82)

Saison, soured in foeders, aged on marionberries, a type of blackberry, in wine barrels for 6 months.

“Fatali Four is a blend of four wine casks and one gin barrel, all of which have homegrown chile peppers added during the final weeks of aging, producing a fruity and tropical flavor profile. The already dry Four becomes bone dry and more acidic under the influence of _Brettanomyces_, and both the peppers and botanicals from the gin barrel contribute to an oily mouthfeel that acts as a counterpoint to its complex minerality.”
