“Then” is a saison that represents the beginning and end of wine harvest. Canes trimmed from Cab Franc vines at Rosewood were used to smoke a portion of the grain used in this beer. The rustic saison base was then aged on Cab Franc skins from the same vineyard. Fieldberry, plum and sweet wine tannins play to a crowd of strawberry fields forever with a gently tart zap of field berry, light elderflower and honeysuckle, finishing with a beautiful tannic dryness. It’s like a baby rosé with subtle funkiness, and a bright dry finish.
