Collab #10 | Unity Ripples | Classic Saison
Sometimes you want a big beer to make waves and sometimes you just want a beer thats make a gentle ripple.
First pours of this elegant and quaffable saison will be up in Argyll, Scotland at Fyne Ales annual Fyne Festival 1-3 June 2018
RIPPLES – a 4.8% Table Saison is the name of a beer we made with Unity Brewing Co in Southampton, England. This our #10 collab came about after Bates and Unity’s Jimmy bonded over table football at Bruges Beer Festival in Belgium. The recipe was developed when the two decided there was a distinct lack of classic well made saisons in the UK, meaning few good examples were pushing the style.
Ripples is a straight forward, elegant and refreshing farmhouse ale. It has a malt bill of pils, spelt and oats and had a late whirlpool addition of saaz hops. We used a single Belgian farmhouse yeast strain. The beer is a clean, bitter and light in body saison with a restrained ester profile to keep it easy drinking and crisp.
