They use Belgian Pilsner, German Pilsner, Vienna, Rye, Oats, Wheat & Corn for malts, Golding hops, and a French-Belgian yeast blend.
Lavery says, "A beer for the ladies, crazies and connoisseurs. A floral, hoppy and fruity Belgian/French-style saison. Saisons are completely undescribable so we won't even try. Our interpretation has five types of grain, nobel hops and three different strains of yeast! The yeast is the star of this show - fruity, spicy, fragrant, alluring and simply delicious. This beer ends dry and crisp. We bottle condition with Brettanomyces Clausenii, a wild yeast that adds fruity, tart and mildly funky aromas and flavors to ale. This beer is great young but will change considerably with time. Named Liopard oir, Irish for 'gold leopard', which appears on the Lavery Family crest." The Beerman Sez, "That works for me."
It won a gold at the 2013 Great American Beer Fest .
