Brewery: Sante Adairius Rustic Ales
Style: Farmhouse Saison
Brewer Description: (from bottle) Saison Bernice is an exquisitely fermented farmhouse ale. Dry and refreshing, Bernice is made of the freshest on-hand and locally available ingredients. She saw multiple yeast additions, including brettanomyces, and further bottle aging. Drink now or cellar properly. Saison Bernice will endure. The beer in this bottle is alive. So is the yeast. Grow it, keep it, use it. We encourage you to brew your own.
