Throwback Thursdays: Dogfish Head / Victory / Stone Saison du BUFF aged in Red & White Wine Barrels
Event Overview

Every Thursday we're selecting an archive beer from the cellar to put on tap!

Dogfish Head / Victory / Stone Saison du BUFF aged in Red & White Wine Barrels

ABV: 9.3%

We added 3 strains of Brettanomyces yeast to our iconic Saison du BUFF, and aged it in wine barrels for almost a year before bottling. Some typical Brettanomyces fermentation characteristics are present in the beer, with some cherry and tropical fruit like flavors and aromatics. Oak notes and tannin add some body and mouthfeel to the beer. Herbal components of the beer are toned down after the extensive barrel aging. Aftertaste has a hint of the classic Brettanomyces funk that adds complexity. This a great sipping beer for lovers of wine barrel aged Saisons that can be cellared and aged for years.
