New Grapefruit Saison, Sundance – Coming in March
Warm weather is here early, with the release of our new seasonal, Sundance.
With a dry wit as crisp and fresh as this Saison of the same name, Sundance exhibits legendary smoothness and taste. This is our spring seasonal Saison, a classic style made with fresh grapefruit.
“What better way to celebrate the arrival of spring than with a traditionally inspired saison – brewed in the winter and enjoyed in the warmer months.” Says our head drinking officer Sumit Vohra. “Though the unpredictable North Carolina weather will certainly have it’s say!”
“The inspiration to use grapefruit in Sundance came from wanting to add extra tartness and citrus flavors to the fruity, peppery flavors produced from the yeast used in this beer.” Galen, our head brewer explains. Lonerider’s spring seasonal also happens to be Galen’s favorite style to brew. “Saison, by style has very broad guidelines. Our specific interpretation of Saison is mildly more tart than an average saison, and with the addition of Jarrylo hops gives it a unique hop aroma that you would find in an American IPA.”
We’ll be releasing Sundance on March 6th. Look for it at The Outlaw’s Hideout, bottle shops, and grocery stores near you!
