Twisted Pine Releases Le Petite Saison
The Perfect Summer Beer has Arrived – Le Petite Saison launches June 1st
Boulder, CO – Twisted Pine Brewery’s latest bottled offering, Le Petite Saison will be hitting the shelves June 1st just in time for the summer’s heat. The beer will be available in 22oz bottles throughout Colorado with possible distribution to Missouri. Le Petite is a beautifully crafted Belgian-style Saison with delicate estery and fruity flavors provided by the yeast. “When working with a great strain of yeast, you want it to shine though as much as possible,” says brewer Jeff Brumley. “This is definitely a big step for us to make such a distinct style of beer.”
Saison is a style of beer that was originally brewed for farm workers in Belgium to drink after a long day of work. This style is typically known as an easy drinking summer session beer with medium alcohol content. Le Petite combines a wonderful breadiness followed by subtle notes of apricot and pear as it warms. Noble hops provide a clean crisp finish to this flavorful balanced beer.
Belgian-style beers provide the perfect complement to food. The yeasty characteristics of this Saison make it a natural pairing for a variety of breads, cheeses and salads. It is a great beer for a backyard barbeque or watching the sun set over the Rocky Mountains.
The decision to extend the 22oz one-off product line comes after strong sales of Hoppy Man Imperial IPA. “More and more people are browsing the bomber section of liquor stores these days,” says brewery owner Bob Baile. “People are really starting to take notice of the higher-end beers. When it comes to good drink, craft beer is still very much a value. You just may find the same complexity in a $9 bottle of beer that you find in a $70 bottle of wine.”
Le Petite Saison joins Twisted Pines’ Timberline Series of beers alongside others such as Hoppy Man, Reilly’s Oak Whiskey Red, Billy’s Chilies, Espresso Stout and the soon to be released Hoppy Knight India Black Ale (7/17).
