springtime en regalia

STYLE: Dry-Hopped Saison
ABV  7.2%   |   IBU  20  |   SRM  4


This year’s variation of our “Springtime” series features a new hop variety called Zappa, named after famous American counterculture musician Frank Zappa. Zappa is a native North American Neomexicanus hop variety recovered from the wild in New Mexico. With aroma descriptors including passion fruit, mint, impulsive, purple, spice, fresh, savory, tropical, and fruity pebbles, we thought it would be a great hop to pair with the spicy, tropical fruit character of Springtime’s French Saison yeast. This beer drinks fairly light with a spicy, fruity flavor that lingers through the dry finish.
