VIVIAN

 

|| /vɪviˈɛn/ viv-ee-EN  ||
Much in the same way a caterpillar transforms into a butterfly, Vivian (Latin; alive) has developed through a variety of stages to arrive at her current state. The grist consists of under modified pilsner malt, malted wheat, and flaked oats, building the foundation of a traditional Saison. Fermented and aged in French Oak California Chardonnay barrels with English ale yeast, wild yeast, and bacteria for 10 months, Vivian gradually evolved into what it is today. Vivian is alive and will continue to transform inside the bottle.
