Boulder, Colo. — Upslope Brewing Company is excited to announce the release of the second volume of their limited release Lee Hill Series — Wild Saison. This quarterly series is named after Upslope’s original, now small batch, North Boulder brewery and celebrates experimentation and creativity.
Volume 2, Wild Saison, delivers bright notes of ripe fruit imparted by the Saison yeast and is nicely balanced by the tartness of the Lactobacillus and Brettanomyces. The farmhouse inspired6.8% abv sour ale was aged for seven months in select red wine barrels then packaged in 19.2-ounce cans.
“Our Lee Hill Series gives us the opportunity to showcase our experimental side and these highly limited brews are a fun experience for our brewers and fans alike,” said Head Brewer, Sam Scruby. “We’re excited to release Volume 2 and share our American sour take on a classic beer style.
Following the overwhelming success of the Barrel Aged Brown Ale, the first volume of the Lee Hill Series, Upslope continues their commitment to innovation and crafting small batches of decadent beer. The Wild Saison will certainly be another cellar keepsake.
Beer lovers wanting to try the second installment on tap or score a can for their cellar should head to Upslope’s Lee Hill Series Release Party on Thursday, November 20 from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at their Lee Hill tap room.
