Cerebral Dreamy Thing

What the brewers say

“Collaboration with our friends at Our Mutual Friend. Farmhouse Pale Ale brewed with Citra, Centennial and Sterling hops then fermented with a blend of 12 Brettanomyces strains in stainless for 3 months, then aged in Chardonnay barrels.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Faint musty spicy notes, with hints of peach. The hops accentuate the fruit and spice character and add earthy hints.”

Flavor: “Definitely gets the dry character of a saison right, great grainy body followed by hints of light fruit on the swallow. Finishes quite dry, but not astringent.”

Overall: “The underlying saison is really well made—you get the spicy fermentation quality and grainy dry finish of the style. The dry hopping adds great complexity, especially in the aroma.”
