The first release from our Wooden Soul series of sour, funky, wild, and barrel-aged beers, Wooden Soul: Heliotropic, Brett Saison Aged in Oak Barrels, began as our Derailed Series: Saison. Brewed with Dupont yeast, then finished with Brux III and Brettanomyces Claussinii, the beer is a blend between the three yeast strains. Residing in Oak barrels, the brett has taken up a healthy residency in the barrels. Expect aromas of tropical fruit, grape, and earthy funk. This beer is dry, tart, and well balanced, with moderate to high carbonation.
