Lil Opal Batch 1 (2013) | Firestone Walker Brewing Company
Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale
Description: Lil Opal is the beer that launched our wild beer program when the barrels were stashed in out-of-the-way places and could be counted on two hands. The beer married oak and wild microflora, creating a beer that eventually gave birth to Barrelworks. Today the barrels number in the thousands, all of various origin and size, nurturing several different beers and wild microflora from our program. Lil Opal is a brett'd saison released in the spring to celebrate the vernal season. Aged over one year in French and American oak, Lil Opal's maturation time expresses the beer's oak signature, refines the spicy, fruity and earthy yeast notes, and refreshes the palate with a soft light acidity. A santé!
