This beer has a complex spicy nose with notes of brown sugar and plums. The taste starts with big spicy malt and alcohol moving to fruity in the middle and then an earthy, spicy finish. High complexity reminiscent of something between a dubbel and a quadruppel.
The inspiration for this beer comes from the traditional French and Belgian farmhouse style ales; Bière de Noel and Saison. The malts used were focused on creating a complex malt backbone, with subtle floral characteristics from the Hersbrucker hops. The yeast is an aromatic Belgian Saison strain that produces complex esters balanced with earthy/spicy notes.
