Vintage 2018. "Barrel Aged Wild Ale with Chardonnay - Cuvée De Bois started life out as our Cuvée which began as an open fermented Farmhouse Ale made in our house style, that was co-fermented with Victorian "free run" Chardonnay and left to naturally sour for an extended period. Cuvée evolved to become Cuvée De Bois when we felt the finished beer needed some oude (old) Saison and French oak characters to mellow out the vibrancy of the chardonnay free run and give this ale some length.

"Reserve Saison is composed of a blend of our Classic Saison vintages aged in Burgundian Barriques and Hogsheads since 2015 and 2016.

After a secondary then tertiary fermentation, we hopped this farmhouse White Ale with wonderfully tropical Galaxy to give it a new-world edge. "
