For months now, we have been digesting your feedback from our first two batches of our Fourier Series: Saison, and wow do you have a lot to say! We have gotten hundreds of detailed and articulate analyses on aromas, mouthfeels and other flavor profiles - some you loved, and some you didn't. Read more about it here.

The Final Installment

And now, after many tweaks, we are relasing the final experimental batch of our Fourier Series: Saison on Friday, April 15 at 3p. Join us - we want your input!

These versions will feature two distinctly different yeast strains.

Alpha Phase 5 // French Saison Yeast - higher ester aromatics with spicy and fruity flavors and a smoother body.
Alpha Phase 6 // Belgian Yeast - more complex esters and noticeable tartness with a dry finish.

The Fourier Series

The Fourier Series is Tin Whiskers' experimental product development beer series. We have developed a process that brings new beers to the world using time-honored scientific methodologies and rigorous product testing. Our brew team is constantly devising new beer concepts. The Fourier Series allows us to include you, our fans, in the product development process. 

The creation of our latest Fourier Series project was sparked by an inquiry from a new restaurant wanting an exclusive beer for their restaurant. Heirloom, located on Marshall Avenue in St. Paul, wanted a modern farmhouse ale to match their modern farmhouse cuisine. Something light yet flavorful, organic on the pallatte, and approachable to all. After some discussion, we decided on a saison we wanted to name Daisy Chain - With the restaurant owning the special edition, Heirloom Daisy Chain.

In electrical engineering terms, a daisy chain is a wiring scheme that combines multiple devices in sequence or in a ring.  We thought this name exemplified the mutually beneficial relationship we formed with Heirloom. 

Introducing Daisy Chain

According to Beer Advocate, a saison is a very complex style; many are very fruity in the aroma and flavor. Look for earthy yeast tones, mild to moderate tartness, lots of spice and with a medium bitterness. They tend to be semi-dry with many only having touch of sweetness.

Collaborating with Heirloom to create such a delicious beer is only the beginning of our experimental cycle. Now, we ask for your help to make the Daisy Chain in to something fantastic that we can bottle and distribute for your drinking pleasure. 

 

So join us, try the beers, cast your opinion (it's alright, we can take it) and take a first-hand seat in helping us craft something you will love and enjoy seeing and taking ownership of on the store shelves.
