A Belgian-style saison, with a twist. Brewed with local honey from Overland Apiaries, a sustainable beekeeping operation in Maine owned by Allagash’s controller, Erin Forbes. Brewer, Ryan Mihm, created the recipe, adding botanical hints of lemongrass and juniper berries. It is a bit spicy with a tangyiness from the lemongrass and a dry finish from the honey.
Green Flash's second collaboration with Brasserie St-Feuillien, Friendship Brew is a black saison. The first version of this collaboration between the brewers of Green Flash and Belgium’s St. Feuillien was Biere de L’Amite, (Friendship Beer) and was brewed and released by St. Feuillien. This version was brewed and is being released by Green Flash of California. Black Saison is a rare beer style that has nothing in common with Biere de L’Amite other than the fact it will share the same name—Friendship Brew.
Buckwheat, oats, and rye fermented with Brettanomyces and a Saison yeast in a 50 hectoliter french oak cask. Herbs and spices grown at the brewery replaced most of the hops. On it's way into package it was treated to a host of microflora to create additional character over time; look for it to gain acidity and dryness.
A hazy tight laced golden-orange, herbal and spicy with tropical fruit in the nose.
Beers and front porch lounging with G. Love means peaches, hominy, grits, molasses, and lemon peel, all funked up with pale and biscuit malts in a saison for sipping. In three-part harmony enters a healthy dose of brettanomyces to bring tropical, citrus flavors and bold, sweet nose. This foot-stomping beer pours a glowing orange under a fluffy, white head and grooves all the way to its dry finish. G. Love and New Belgium together, making sweet beer and music.
This Franco-Belgian style Farmhouse Ale has an effervescent body and a light straw color. Rabbid Rabbit, with it’s light malt body, augmented by spices, is a complex and frothy beverage with a deceptively high alcohol content.
A few times a year, we will cut Dan loose to brew whatever he chooses, uncensored, uncut, unplugged. Always handcrafted, this beer is brewed for the adventurous soul. This is a very limited edition and we make no promises to ever brew this style again.
Saisons were pale ales originally brewed in the farmhouses of Wallonia, the French speaking region of Belgium. Giving it their own twist, the brewers at Cape Ann added fresh rhubarb and 250lbs whole strawberries to the brew. The result is a light pink hue and flavors that wonderfully compliment the natural tartness of the traditional saison.
