Saison Brett 2014 – Four Winds Brewing Company

Extremely limited release

From Four Winds Brewing in Delta BC comes their “Saison Brett”.  The Saison Brett is a saison barrel aged in red wine barrels for 10 months and infected with the wild yeast Brettanomyces and lacto-pediococcus.  The beer pours a cloudy bright orange with a big white head.  The aroma consists of bready malts, fruity, pepper, spices, and some mild funk coming from the Brettanomyces.  The flavour is of bready malts, yeast, citrus, citrus rind, orange, .mild red wine, pepper, spices, oak and a great funk coming from the Brett.  The alchol content comes in at 7% with an IBU of 28.  This batch of the Saison Brett is just as amazing as the original one released and possibly better.  Four Winds Brewing has hit it out of the park with this release and it is to bad that it can not be a full time beer and only a seasonal beer.  But then at 10 months in barrels it takes some time to make this beauty.

Commercial Description:   Aged in Okanagan red wine barrels, our Saison Brett is invigorated by wild yeast strain Brettanomyces,  inviting hues of straw and earth.
