“Jingzhe” means “Spring Thunder” or “Awakening insects” and is the solar term reaching the mid-spring. During this time, warm weather and frequent thunderstorm wake up the hibernated inspects; animals and plants also begin to grow and get ready to blossom. This is the most lively time of the year.

To welcome our sleepy insect friends return to our world, we brew a very special sour farmhouse saison with locally-grown lemons that then go through double fermentation with Belgian yeast and our very own wild yeast “Tien-Long” (meaning “Sky Dragon”). Spring Thunder is a complex sour farmhouse saison full of lemon, passion fruit, and citrusy flavors, and finishes with clean, dry and fruity aftertaste just like a fine champagne. Welcome back, little critters!
