Sneak Attack is our winter seasonal offering, a Belgian-style Saison, spiced with whole, organic green cardamom pods lending it a very dry, but not overly bitter finish. It features aromas of pepper, cardamom, lemon rind and freshly cut grassy fields. Its refreshing flavor is derived from pilsner malt, Belgian Light Candi Sugar and a traditional spicy Saison yeast.
Brewmaster Shaun O’Sullivan says, “While this is the time of year when brewers are typically introducing strong, heavy beers, we wanted to brew up a bit of a surprising alternative, essentially an antidote to winter. At 6.2% ABV with 38 IBUs, it drinks light and refreshing but really has some heat behind what is seemingly a tame beer.”
Co-founder Nico Freccia added, “We had a great time with the art for this beer. George Washington, shirtless with a beer gut, leading a ragtag band of guys in brightly striped swim shorts across the river in a snowstorm. How cool is that? And the beer pairs equally well with the rich and warming foods of winter as it does with pizza and wings at game time.”
Sneak Attack Saison is available from January through March in cans (6-packs) and on draft at bars and stores.
