Strange Fellows Limited Edition Beer Release – Moon Blossom

MOON BLOSSOM Elderflower Sour Saison – Can-conditioned Limited Release
While away the enchanted evenings of summer with this sylvan Saison, infused with a little moon magic and heaps of freshly picked Elderflower blossoms.

Tales of old remind us to beware the enchantment of Faeries on a mid-summer’s evening and advise that standing under an elderflower tree will prevent them from spiriting you away. Elderflower trees are somewhat hard to come by, so we have something a little more convenient for your protection which also happens to be just the thing to linger with on ethereal summer nights.

Harken this folklore of old:
On summer’s brightest day of gold,
As veil ‘tween worlds doth fade away,
the faeries we can spy at play.
Remember all: you must beware!
Or to their kingdom, you they’ll bear.
Then leave a changeling in your place:
Mischief enacted with your face.
Fragrant blossoms made of lace
Elderflower will keep you safe.
And so this ale we give to you,
Lest moonlit eve you come to rue.
