The second in the Arigna series, “Arigna 2016” is a curious beast. Brewed as a Belgian style Dubbel, fermented as a Saison. In an open fermenter no less!
Rich and malty, caramel, stone fruits, a little biscuit up front say Dubbel. But the saison funk and dry finish put this brew in a class of its own. Low carbonation from 100% bottle conditioning, for smooth easy drinking, despite its high ABV.
Sausages and smoked meats, choucroute garnie, venison and wild boar. Delicious with rich chocolate and coffee flavours too, a beer for every course.
Gone but not forgotten
