Old Will

Style: Single-Hopped Saison

ABV: 5.8%

Availability: Summer-Fall Seasonal

This Belgian blonde is single hopped with extra aged west coast willamette hops.  Unlike typical American hop usage, many Belgian breweries will age and oxidize hops intentionally, seeking the cheesy, funky, earthy, grassy flavors that typify farmhouse and lambic styles of brewing.  This beer focuses on this hop aging process, with a malty, strong saison backing up the cheesy hop funk.
