Description:

A very traditional saison style farmhouse ale with a fantastic twist - white wine grape must!  This recipe kit comes from the mind of our friend Jeff, and is so incredibly delicious and complex that when Jamil Zainasheff, founder of Heretic Brewing Company, tasted it at a BJCP judging workshop that we held, he immediately invited Jeff to brew a commercial batch using locally sourced grapes and put it on tap!  Expect the classic phenolic complexity of a traditional French Saison, but with tons of extra floral and fruit characteristics due to the wine must.  This beer has insane dimension and perfect balance, giving you a show stopper of a saison that everyone will love!

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!
