L’Ours

This blend consists of twenty percent sour rye beer aged for two years in Banyuls barrels, and eighty per cent young season. Its nose with delicate notes rancio and dried fruits may first lead you to believe that this is a sour beer. However, its palate immediately reveals a young, acidulous and slightly oaky beer that delivers a refreshing finish.

Did you know

This blend is a mix of barrel aged saison and young fresh saison, giving the wild yeast a new bottled territory to evolve in for the next months and years. Each forthcoming blend will be unique, sometimes presenting stronger flavours, either more acidulous, bitter or fruity.
