Tarasque Saison

With an expansion completed a few weeks ago, Wisecare Brewing Co. let it be known that a third beer would be soon added to its year-round lineup.

Today, the Memphis brewery on Broad Avenue provided some real details.

Tarasque Saison, which “leans French but is loaded with Australian hops,” will join Ananda IPA and Tiny Bomb American Pilsener in the year-round lineup. Cans of Tarasque Saison will be available in a matter of weeks.

Here’s the full announcement from Wiseacre’s Facebook page:

We’re excited to announce Tarasque Saison as our 3rd year round beer. We’re still weeks away from having cans, but come celebrate the launch tomorrow evening at Chiwawa from 7-9 as we raffle off some swag like glassware, a hoodie, and more. Once again, artist Rachel Briggs research/styles/textures/personality/story telling/execution bring this beer to life in the most amazing ways.

Here’s a description of the beer:

The Tarasque was a (most likely) mythical creature that has the head of a lion, six bear legs, a turtle shell, and a scorpion tail. It was probably some sort of an insect dinosaur hellbeast. A lady nun sang it to sleep in French Wallonia allowing the town mob to end it’s life. Our saison leans French but is loaded with Australian hops. Superfruity and blossoming with yeasty spicy aromas, Tarasque is a beast you will want to overcome you, but it will softly sing you to sleep instead.
