Brewer Description: (from bottle) Béatitude is the French word for bliss which is what we float away on whenever we enjoy this specially brewed beer. This Tart Saison is brewed in the Belgian tradition of tart farmhouse ales. The magic happens when our house culture of Brettanomyces, Lactobacillus and Saison yeast throw an out-of-this world party in our fermenters. Aged on pineapples, this yields a beer with a lacto forward nose, an intensely tart pineapple flavor, a doughy complexity, and takes the word “refreshing” to a whole new level.
