From their website:
"Saison with malted spelt, rye, and brettanomyces.
An opportunity like this presents itself only once in a lifetime – three of our favorite and most admired brewers, all here at CBC and willing to join us for a massive collaborative brew: Yvan de Baets of Brasserie De la Senne in Brussels, Belgium. Chad Yakobson of Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project in Boulder, Colorado. And Luc “Bim” LaFontaine, head brewer at Brasserie Dieu du Ciel! in Montreal, Quebec.
OG: 1.041 FG: 1.004 ABV: 4.5%"
a - Pours a hazy bright yellow color with one inch of white head and moderate carbonation evident.
s - Smells of spice, floral hops, citrus hops, light brett, and some fruity malts. Get some more brett in the nose as it warms up; pretty nice nose.
t - Tastes of spice, oranges, citrus hops, pepper, fruity malts, floral hops, earthy notes. A little spicier than the nose, and not as much brett.
m - Medium body and low carbonation. Super smooth body, and very easy to drink.
o - Overall a pretty nice saison. I liked the nose a lot as the brett came through quite a bit. If you like spice in a saison you'll probably like this one a lot.
