Collab with: Firestone Walker Brewing
Farmhouse - Saison Regular

Mind Games is a collaboration between Matt Brynildson of Firestone Walker and Rob Lovatt of Thornbridge Brewery. Matt and Rob travelled to Bordeaux in search of something unique and returned with some recently emptied gin barrels. They then brewed a classic Saison-style beer, using three different yeast strains and the finest Savinjski Goldings, which was then aged in these gin barrels for eight months. The result is a wonderfully effervescent golden Saison with impressions of lemon and juniper.

375ml dark green bottle from Vinmonopolet Nettbutikk. Shared with Finn. Dissipating white head, scattered lacing, hazy golden. Quite inviting berry skins on the nose, herbal dry. Decent taste profile of yeasty fruitiness,, apricot and juniper. Woody, and drying end, hints of gin. Interesting brew. Well bodied. Okay with the soft cake. Like it.(Bergstua, Malangen 15.06.2021).

Delt med Rune på Bergstua. Gylden. Nesten klar. Så vidt litt skum som forsvinner raskt. Aroma av vanilje & eik. Smaken einebær. Balansert. Passe tørr avslutning.
