8 Wired Brewing
8 Wired Chardonnay Barrel Aged Saeson
Country: New Zealand
Brewery: 8 Wired Brewing
Format: 500ml Bottle
A saison brewed to what I would expect old world ales to have tasted like, with a new world hop twist. Aged in chardonnay barrels with added brettanomyces for a year, then dry hopped with NZ hops.

WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Super dry Saison for what is already a dry style. Perhaps lacks some of the typical characteristics, but enjoyable.
Super-dry, spicy, woody saison.
Clear bright orange colour, sour grape aroma, quite oaky which adds to the dryness, granny smith apples, earthy, funky yeast, thin, slippery texture. Not a huge fan, but can appreciate the effort.
