I brewed a beer that was loosely based on the Crooked Stave Farmhouse Ale that was recently featured as the beer of the week. Instead of using 100% Brett, I used the White Labs American Farmhouse blend, and I used Pacific Jade hops, including 2 oz of dry hops. Additionally, I used a darker Munich malt that made the beer a dark orange/medium Amber color. It turned out great, although I hope it gets funkier... It is very fruity right now (papaya).
I would like to enter it into a comp soon, but am struggling on where to put it. I tasted it against the Saison style guidelines, and I feel it's much too full bodied to do well in that category, and it's pushing the color threshold for the category. However, the fruity esters and peppery hop character from the Pacific Jade, fit right in with the style. My other option would be to enter it as a "Dry Hopped Amber Farmhouse" in the Belgian Specialty category... Any Ideas?
