Barrel Aged Saison Blend with Sugar Cube Melons
Melon Saison is the next in our series of Simple Saison blends re-fermented with fruit varieties that have subtle flavors. This series started under the name Saison du Chuchotements (Saison of Whispers in French). So far we have done Unfruited, Green Pears, Melon (honeydew and cantaloupe), Cherimoya, Asian Pears, and now Sugar Cube Melons. This is one of the very few brands that we blend from a single base beer, which we call Simple Saison. Brewed with Pilsner Malt, Floor Malted Wheat, and Spelt, then fermented and aged in white wine barrels with our house mixed cultures. We usually blend from vintages ranging in age from 4-8 months.
The Sugar Cube Melons come from Weiser Family farms in Tehahapi, Ca. We have a special relationship with this farm. We use their Tehahapi Grain Project Heirloom wheat for our Lambic Inspired beers, and we also used their beautiful Nantes Carrots for The Carrot King. These were some of the best tasting melons we’ve ever had. Similar in appearance and flavor to cantaloupes, but packed with so much more flavor. We ate ungodly amounts of the fruit when we were processing them. You can visit with Alex the farmer and buy his fruit at the Sunday Hollywood and Wednesday Santa Monica Farmers Markets. Cheers!
