This light brew is perfect for spring! A slightly sweet and honey-like aroma contributes well to the citrus flavor common to the style. The thirst-quenching sweetness in flavor transitions into a dry but refreshing finish.
This is our flagship Saison. This tawny orange-hued beer pours with a rocky whitehead. Aromas of passion fruit, tangerine, and black pepper hit the nose. Flavors a cascade of citrus and pepper. It finishes with a dry and lingering bitterness that awaits another sip.
Our Imperial Saison! It bursts with fruity tropical characteristics of passion fruit, mango and peach from the New Zealand Rakau hops we use. Combined with the pepper and ginger flavors produced by our house yeast, this is a flavor extravaganza!
Fort Collins Collaboration 2013
For the Fort Collins collaboration brewed at Funkwerks, Peter Bouchaert of New Belgium Brewing Company and Bill Beymer of Odell Brewing Company along with Gordon Schuck of Funkwerks decided to brew a traditional French Biere de Garde. To throw a wrinkle in the recipe, Peter decided we should add Belgian Endive to the mix, both in the mash and the boil. The resulting beer is a clean malty farmhouse ale with a subtle earthiness. Cheers to American Craft Beer!
Inspired by Berliner Weisse, this beer is our interpretation of a historical Saison. Traditionally, Saisons were of a lower gravity and produced from mixed fermentations. Using Saccharomyces, Brettanomyces, and Lactobaccilus in the fermentation results in a refreshingly tart Saison with a citrusy tart flavor and aroma. The perfect refreshing summer beer!
Solenna pairs the fruitiness of a traditional Belgian yeast strain with the subtle spicy character of Brettanomyces and the floral notes of German hops. Notes of candy apple, cinnamon, and fresh-cut grass give way to a dry finish and firm lingering bitterness.
Saison d’Brett is an updated version of last years’ Brett Dream. It is fermented with our house Saison strain and Brettanomyces, a wild yeast strain. Notes of pineapple, passion fruit, and earthy spice dominate the flavor profile. A dry, effervescent finish makes this beer very refreshing. This beer will cellar well and continue to develop with age.
A dark mahogany Belgian-style ale partially aged in bourbon barrels. Notes of dark fruits, vanilla, cocoa, and caramel gives way to a dry finish with a hint of oak tannins. A complex, contemplative brew for
a cold winter evening.
