Farmhouse Ale with Brettanomyces (Wild Yeast)
THE LOW DOWN
The Wild Saison is one of the original Brett Saisons in bottle in Australia and is a Farmhouse Ale that has been fermented using our local strain of Brettanomyces wild yeast (found at our brewery) to give a more rustic & notable Farmhouse character. In our House Style, the Wild Saison is open fermented, barrel-aged and dry-hopped to deliver the ultimate in farmhouse experience with an abundance of texture, citrus and freshness. 100% bottle conditioned, this Farmhouse Ale exhibits strong citrusy characters coupled with a dry and spicy finish. Time to get a little wild!
One of my all time fave’s, the Wild Saison is a chameleon of a beer, when it’s young it has bold citrus hop characters however when aged for 6 months or more, the Brettanomyces yeast takes centre stage and delivers characters of barnyard, leather and forest floor. You decide how you wish to experience it!

With careful cellaring, this Wild Saison will age gracefully and develop yeast-forward characters up to 24 months
