21st Amendment Brewery (San Leandro, California) declares war on winter once again with the re-release of Sneak Attack Saison.
Drawing inspiration from General George Washington’s bold decision to cross the Delaware River on Christmas night to surprise his enemy, 21st Amendment Brewery created Sneak Attack as a means of “ambushing the cold” with the summer flavors found within a Belgian-style Saison. To deal winter a devastating blow, Sneak Attack digs in and lays a solid foundation with Pilsner Malt, Belgian Light Candi Sugar and spicy Saison Yeast. These ingredients supply a refreshing flavor that is further reinforced with “aromas of pepper, cardamom, lemon rind and freshly cut grassy fields.” Standing proud at 6.2% ABV and 38 IBUs, Sneak Attack is 21st Amendment’s subtle way of saying, “In your face, winter.”
“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 that essentially says, ‘In your face, winter!’ This year we experimented with a new Belgian yeast and had some fun with the subtle spicing to create a true farmhouse-style ale.”
-21st Amendment Brewery Co-founder and Brewmaster Shaun O’Sullivan
