Name- School’s Out
Style- Belgian-Style Farmhouse Ale
Schooooool’s out for summer! Experimenting with a new Farmhouse yeast strain, this beer is cholk-full of citrus notes from the addition of Mandarina Bavaria hops and a new experimental hop, Lemondrop. Each refreshing sip tastes like summertime.
Refreshing notes of orange citrus and lemon.
Pairs poorly with lawn darts.
Release date- Saturday, July 4th. 'Merica.
Why did you decide to brew it?
Gordon drank a beer in Portland, OR that used a different (Farmhouse) yeast strain and he wanted to brew our Saison (with a few recipe adjustments) with the same Farmhouse yeast strain to compare to our Saison proprietary yeast strain.
We used a hop variety called Lemon Drop that adds a lemon characteristic, which somewhat resembles the Sorachi Ace hop strain, minus notes of dill. We also added Mandarina Bavaria hop variety to round out the citrus profile.
Is it barrel aged?
Technically yes. It was fermented in our red wine Foeder, instead of fermenting in a stainless steel fermentation tank. Due to the short amount of time the beer spent in the oak Foeder, the beer does not have a particularly oak like characteristics.
Beer it might be comparable to?
Can it be cellared? If yes, how long?
Our beer is brewed and aged for immediate consumption, but can still develop with age. However, because we do not know how it will age, we can not recommend cellaring. Age at your own risk.
