The South End Saison is a dry French saison. Our saison was brewed with a traditional saison malt bill to enhance the soft mouthfeel of this otherwise very dry beer. To give a little extra depth of flavor to this already complex beer we added delightfully fruity Mosiac hops and cracked peppercorn at the end of the boil. Combined with the lemony character from the French saison yeast, the result is a wonderful balance of tasty spice and fruit flavors.
All Switchback beers are brewed in Burlington, Vermont and are carbonated during fermentation by the yeast itself resulting in a 100% naturally conditioned beer. After aging, we simply move the beer to the keg or bottle, leaving it unfiltered for the freshest, fullest, most natural flavor possible.
