Notes
This is a scaled down version of a soured saison I brewed. The initial batch was 11 gallons brewed in 10/2013. It aged with dregs from Cantillon, Jolly Pumpkin and Orval until 04/2015 at which point I pulled a gallon and let it age on half a pound of elderberries. The Cantillon lambic-like character really came out after 60 days on fruit so I bottled it. This beer won bronze in the sour category of the MontreAler's Ale and Lager Throwdown (MALT) in Nov 2015.
