Named “Bonne Idée”, which is French for “good idea,” this beer is 8+%, brewed broadly in the style of a big Saison. It features a yeast blend of 80% Wy’East 3726 (the strain selected for Cheers To Belgian Beers) and 20% of our house Kolsch ale yeast. The malt bill is Gambrinus 2-row Pilsner with additions of malted wheat, Vienna malt and some Dark Munich malt, and it is respectfully hopped with Perle, Newport and Cascade. The hops pair nicely in the aroma with the spicy esters from the yeast; the mouthfeel is big and sumptuous, with a complex set of flavors; the finish is long and more-ish, with a noticably hoppy backbone. In a nutshell, this is another rocked-out Double Mountain version of an archetypal style.
