Mad Ear, Naked Bière de Garde – Trinity Brew

From Trinity Brew in Colorado Springs, Colorado comes their “Mad Ear, Naked Bière de Garde” a saison aged on Brettanomyces. The beer pours a cloudy orange colour with lots of floaters and a tan head.  The aroma consists of yeast, brett, pepper, earth and some citrus.  The flavour is of saison yeast, brett, pepper, earth, citrus, citrus rind, resin and some sweetness.  The alcohol content comes in at 8.1% with an IBU of 35.  Not the best Bière de Garde or Saison that I have had but this was a very enjoyable beer and I look forward to trying more from the brewery.

Commercial Description: Grist: Barley, Oats +Rye, 35 IBUs of Styrian + Saaz, Mad Extended Boil for Mad Red Color, No Spices, Free-Rise Fermentation with Proprietary Yeast, Pair with Truffled Foie Gras, Cassoulet, Rosemary Lamb

      Yeah they have a really interesting art style. Me and Saisons are not best friends but I love Saisons that are fermented with Brettanomyces like this one was.

      Thanks for the comment! I plan on keeping this blog going long term for sure.
