"Commercial Description: Golden ale Fermented with Multiple strains of Brettanomyces yeast. Collaboration with Allagash"

Rated 98/100 percentile from www.ratebeer.com


"Les Deux Brasseurs 8.5% abv. Our Brewmaster, Jason Perkins had the honor of traveling to Belgium in early March to collaborate on Les Deux Brasseurs with Dirk Naudts of De Proef Brouwerij. Les Deux Brasseurs meaning The Two Brewers; represents the joining of two cultures. Les Deux Brasseurs is a Golden Ale fermented with two strains of Brettanomyces. Our Brettanomyces, discovered and isolated at our location was flown in fresh for this special occasion. With Dirk’s favorite strain of Brettanomyces, the beer was brewed using Pilsner Malt and a small amount of Torrified Wheat. The Golden Ale was then hopped with German Hallertau and fermented and aged for four months. In the course of the brew it was dry hopped with Czech Saaz. The result is a beer of remarkable character with significant fruit tones, including; pear, apple and pineapple. This beer also produces the flavors of graham cracker, barnyard character and is rounded by an herbal spicy hop finish."
