Community Buckwheat Saison

Together with our pals at Brasserie Dunham, we brewed a buckwheat saison with a light hazy yellow hue. This farmhouse saison presents aromas of tangerine and overripe pineapple. It’s dry to the bone with effervescent carbonation and it drinks deliciously easy for its 6.5%. Notes of citrus and pineapple play alongside some nice gentle funk and nutty maltiness which carries through to the dry finish.

Sam’s Take

We’ve wanted to work with Eloi from Dunham for quite some time, we love his farmhouse ales and thought it would be great to brew a beer which blended his yeast strain with one of ours. We talked about the idea and came up with Community. Eloi was looking to play with some old-style grains and he liked the idea of Buckwheat, which brings a nice nutty, bready flavour to this beer, which adds to its complexity.
