Description 

Our contemporary Saison, Loving Cup, was boldly dry-hopped with Simcoe hops providing intense passion fruit and woody aromas. We combined various yeasts, including a distinctively earthy wild strain, Brettanomyces Trois, to give this brew a funky, pineapple flavor and slightly tart finish. We were looking for a beautiful buzz and Loving Cup showed us the way.

Southbound Brewing Co’s. Loving Cup is an interesting take on the traditional Saison style. This light golden-colored slightly hazy brew with an impressive head exhibits the appearance and the Belgian fermentation character that's expected of the style. A mildly earthy and slightly tart Brettanomyces note is evident in the background of the aroma and flavor that complements the overall package. In addition, an assertive hop rate delivers a passion fruit/tropical fruit character in the aroma, complex earthy/barnyard notes in the flavor, and a moderate hit of bitterness from the middle all the way to the desirably dry finish. The overall impression is of a refreshing, deliciously complex, funky fusion of a Belgian Saison with an American Pale Ale. Well worth a try for both Belgian-style and American-style beer lovers!  Cheers and enjoy!
