Dageraad / Upright Ornette
Tart Saison with spices
Brewed in collaboration with Alex Ganum from Portland’s Upright Brewing, Ornette Witbier will be available in glasses and growlers!
Named in honour of the recently departed jazz great, Ornette Coleman, Ornette is a witbier brewed with some unusual grains, some out-there spicing and a partial sour mash. We call it Free Brewing, and we think it’s the shape of brewing to come.
"I have always wanted to go into the mainstream, but I didn’t want to sacrifice what I was doing to get there."
- Ornette Coleman

Belgian style wheat beers are very pale, opaque, with the crisp character of wheat, plus the citric refreshment of orange peel and coriander. Ingredients sometimes also include oats for smoothness, and other spices such as grains of paradise. Serve with light cheeses or mussels.
