Backyard Boogie | Denizens Brewing Co.
Style: Farmhouse Ale - Saison
Description: Our first produced/released barrel aged beer. This beer was fermented with saison yeast, brettanomyces and lactobacillus in the primary fermentation. It was then aged in chardonnay barrels for 6 months where some barrels were pitched with pediococcus. After 6 months we blended the batch back to taste. Backyard boogie has a blend of fruity esters and spicy phenolics produced by the yeast and brettanomyces, which balanced by the acidity produced by the bacteria, and rounded out by oak wood character. Finishes light and refreshing.
