Moon Under Water Brewery Releases the 2015 Tempus Corvi Sour Saison
A Sour Saison Aged in French Oak Pinot Noir Barrels
Taking inspiration from traditional saison brewers of Belgium and revivalist brewers of North America, Tempus Corvi is a mixed-fermentation saison. We let this saison rest for 5 months in French oak wine barrels where the activity of a diverse collection of Saccharomyces and Brettanomyces yeasts and lactic acid bacteria transformed the beer, adding sourness and additional complexity. With its bright acidity and light body, Tempus Corvi is a refreshing beer ready to drink now or be cellared for continued development along its own course.
Due to its very limited volume, it will only be available for purchase on-site at the pub and is will be released on June 16th. If you are on Vancouver Island, or simply want to experience a new, Sour Saison from Moon Under Water it is time to head to Victoria and try the 2015 Tempus Corvi.
