Big Ghost Saison

This is a big bold bugger of a Super Saison. Inspired by the idea generating factory of Fantome and using a culture of their strain grown in a batch of a smaller beer. This was a big hit at the 2011 AHA Conference.

Sounds pretty tasty Drew. Did you get much of a lactobacillus flavor from the Fantome Dregs (I know that lacto hates higher ABV, but I know that their strain can be pretty alcohol tolerant ala Pissenlit)?

No lacto.

I cheated. I got my hands on a clean culture of Fantome's Brett for use in this beer. All the funk, none of the bite. :)
