About The Beer
Brewery: Ballistic Beer
Format: 750ml Bottle
Our nod to a traditional Belgian style Saison. Using the solera method, we’ve further developed our farmhouse mixed culture to exhibit additional yeast driven esters and phenolics typical of the Saison style. We’ve kept things simple and strived for balance and drinkability. Our house culture has imparted a characterful yeast profile whilst allowing the complex subtleties of the malts and hops to shine. Story Over Style pours gold with a slight haze and lasting, effervescent white foam. Bright yeast driven aromatics are prominent with notes of pepper, orange, banana, and spicy clove. Malt character exhibits a subtle breadiness, a hint of malt sweetness with some supporting rye spice. A herbal and citrus hop profile compliments the beer’s complex nature without being overly dominant. Firm bitterness and a dry finish leave you satisfied and wanting more.
We were careful to ensure that the fermentation profile was the real hero in this beer. Nothing fancy, rather a balanced modern Saison with its roots deeply entrenched in the rich stylistic history of the style. To us, Saison is more than just a style; it’s a historical story that has evolved on the palettes of beer drinkers from then to now.
