Native Series Sorghum Saison

This Spring the Blackberry Farm Brewery is releasing the next beer in our Native family of ales. The Native Series Sorghum Saison is a rustic Farmhouse Ale brewed with Muddy Pond Sorghum. It features delicate, grassy aromas with a subtly sweet, malty finish reminiscent of honey and papaya.

The Native Series ales feature a range of styles and flavors that share one extraordinary, communal component – native, wild yeasts harvested from across Blackberry Farm’s 4,200 protected acres at the edge of the Great Smoky Mountains. These yeast strains have been carefully gathered and maintained for us by our friends at South Yeast Labs, and they reflect the micro-flora that are unique to our location in the mountains of East Tennessee.

The Sorghum Saison pairs beautifully with a bouillabaisse or a hearty pork cassoulet. Breathe in the soft notes of straw and hay and then enjoy a glass of this light-bodied and refreshing high gravity beer.
