PIPEWORKS ANY OTHER NAME SAISON WITH ROSE PETALS & ROSE HIPS

Effervescent yellow-cleared bantam relies on active saison yeast to awaken its wafting floral-perfumed rose petal sweetness, crabapple-like rose hips tartness and lime-dried lemon hop souring. Mild barnyard acridity and slight cellar musk found beneath the surface. Lovely red rose luster also benefits from citric-spiced lemondrop, mandarin orange and tangelo illusions.

ANGRY ERIK VARAISON

On tap at Shepherd & Knucklehead – Haledon, discrete ‘fusion’ between contemporary gose and saison weds the mildly citric-salted acidity of the former with the dry herbal barnyard acridity of the latter. Lemon-dropped yellow grapefruit souring, tart orange juicing, white grape tannins and floral daubs align above biscuit-y pilsner malting for crisply clean farmhouse ale.
