Description:

Nouveaux Amis comes from the mind our good friend Jeff.  With this classic style saison, he mixed white wine must to add depth, complexity and tons of delicious flavor.  In fact, this beer was so amazing that Heretic Brewing invited Jeff to do a pilot batch with fresh grapes sourced locally!  This Saison is floral, fruity, and full of insane dimension.  The fruity, wine character adds to and layers on the typically phenolic yeast characteristics, bringing you a well rounded and very complex saison style beer.

This is the coolest story!  So, we invited Jamil Zainasheff down to run an informal, fun, BJCP style tasting workshop.  What we did was told everyone local to bring in whatever they had ready, and we all sat down around a GIANT round table, poured all the beers one at a time, and were coached step by step by Jamil as to how to properly taste and judge individual beers.  It was ridiculously cool, informative and fun for everyone involved.  This recipe was one of the beers that Jamil really enjoyed and gave top marks to, as well as everyone around the round table.  When we were all done, he approached the brewer, Jeff, and asked him if he wanted to brew it on a 5 barrel system!  So they exchanged emails, sourced some local grapes from outside of Fairfield, CA, crushed them on site, brewed the bejeezus out of it and threw it on tap at Heretic Brewing Company!  This recipe is Jeff’s original recipe that we tasted on that BrewWorkshop day, pre-set for 5 gallons of magic in your keg!
