Aslan Mines of Moria (Dry Hopped Grisette)

5.5% ABV // 33 IBU // 1.046 OG

light body + lemon & lavender notes + refreshing

An interpretation of a nearly forgotten style, said to once be brewed for the miners from the Hainaut province of Belgium. Similar to a saison, this beer is quite refreshing. It draws upon use of Mistral hops in both the whirlpool and dry hop to create a faint fruitiness reminiscent of sweet lemon peel with herbal notes of lavender. A fascinating farmhouse strain from a tiny brewery in Belgium was employed for fermentation, which gives this beer a distinct, yet balanced farmhouse character.
