W&L No. 039: Edgar

a saison with local Italian Plums

At the tail end of Autumn in Seattle, the fruit trees growing in backyards bear their last fruits of the season. This is usually when a friend or neighbor will call you up (or holler across the fence) to help them out by taking a bushel or two – anything to ensure the bounty won’t go to waste.

Edgar is the product of this yearly phenomenon: our friends Eric and Joy had a surplus of Italian Plums from their tree, and thought we could put them to use by brewing a beer with them. So that’s exactly what we did.

We started with a base of fruit-forward yet light saison, wanting to accentuate the plum flavor without overpowering it with other notes. Then we added the whole lot of fruit – minus a few to sample, of course – to infuse the dryness of our culture with the ultra-ripe, sweet plums. The beer was then naturally conditioned in the keg.

Now, just as Eric and Joy shared with us, we’re ready to share these delicious plums with you all.
