Joie de Vivre

Blended Barrel-Aged Fruited Wild Saison

Pronounced [zhwa-deh-veev], this delightfully indelicate wild ale is the result of an 18-month long experiment in mixed fermentation and blending.

Bone dry, fruity, and funkier than George Clinton’s backside, this Saison has been aged in French oak Rioja and Bordeaux barrels with a legion of wild yeasts and bacterial cultures. Horse blanket and barnyard “funk” comes from a blend of wild yeasts in the Brettanomyces family. Lactobacillus adds a soft-yet-assertive lactic acidity to give the beer a nice “bite”. Cabernet grapes from Paso Robles, CA were pressed in-house and allowed to begin fermenting before being added to the mix. Finally, we blended this beer with a bit of Freedom of Speach to smooth the edges and mellow the considerable funkiness.
