Bruny Island Beer Co Saison D'Entrecasteaux

When you're a farm based brewery that loves to showcase your home state's farming produce, it makes sense to brew farmhouse style ales like saisons. This one takes its name from French explorer Admiral Bruni D’Entrecasteaux, whose expedition charted the Bruny Island area in 1792.

As with many Bruny Island beers, it uses raw barley and wheat grown in fields overlooking the D'Entrecasteaux Channel on North Bruny, as well as Tasmanian grown Helga, Willamette and HPA-035 hops. Completing the picture are three different yeast strains – a French brewer’s yeast plus two strains of Brettanomyces – not to mention a lengthy secondary fermentation and further conditioning in bottle and keg.

Unsurprisingly, the beer is complex – and pretty challenging too. First up, you'll find candied pear aromas and a lemony character plus lively barnyard funk. From there, it moves from tangy through dry to puckeringly dry, delivering one of the most intense finishes we can recall in a saison in some time.
