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.
