Spelt Oats Rye Saison Data and Results


Descriptors: plum, red apple, sour grape, fruity funk

Very complex beer. Aroma is plum, red apple, sour grape. Explodes the taste buds at first sip, it lightly tart. A little alcohol in the finish. Pretty sure there is some Brett in this yeast strain, I get a little of that fruit/funkiness in the aroma and taste, which is great! Tried a bottle that I filled out of the keg 4 months prior, man, it’s still great. I don’t taste a hint of oxidation or off flavors from sitting for a few months bottled from the keg. Still that insane taste of sour plums with a slight bit of funk. I really dig this beer.
