ABOUT THE BEER: Treasure Chest 2014 | Barrel Aged Saison with Plum:
The Treasure Chest 2014 beer is a Barrel-aged Belgian Style Saison with Plum. This specialty beer is fermented in red wine barrels with house Brettanomyces, then conditioned with plums for six months. This enticing blend emerges with an appropriately pink hue, delicate notes of plum and almond, and is balanced by subtle tannins drawn from the barrel and wild yeast. A mouthwatering and tart rosé-like finish rounds out Treasure Chest 2014, an exceptional barrel-aged offering.
