Synaptic Illusion

Just in time for the onslaught that is the Ladies Beer League (pucker up ladies, mwahaha!), Thursday @ 7:15 p.m. we have our latest release in the form of:

Synaptic Illusion – A Sour Saison

Berries, fruit and spice with a little bit of funk and a whole lot of tart; a little farmhouse ale with a serious wallop of refreshing flavour and acidity.

The wort was soured with some lacto delbruckii I whipped up in the back room. Boiled the wort for 30 minutes, cooled then fermented on a 4th yr-running Saison strain originating from a culture of Wyeast 3711 French Saison – not really sure what it is now, it’s morphed. Aged on oak to finish = money. Regardless, a fun beer all around!

Please enjoy.
