Pitching/Fermentation: Thought to originate from a small, sophisticated, Belgian brewer's spelt saison. It is earthy, spicy, peppery, tart and dry, with tropical fruit and citrus at warm fermentation temperatures. A perfect strain for farmhouse ales and saisons. It favors pitching in the upper 60s or low 70s, and free-rising from there.
