A Note on This Beer
With a 4.17 brewery rating, Cellador is ranked among the Top 20 Saison Makers in the World on Untappd. That’s even higher than Holy Mountain, Jester King, and Allagash!
Today we have one of Cellador’s boldest brews; the last time we offered a nano batch of this 9.1% ABV Mellona Rustic Imperial Saison it sold out so fast, only a lucky few of our members saw it on the app.
- So, to ensure it doesn’t happen to you again, here’s what you and your buddies missed out on last time:
- Mellona is a Rustic Saison fermented in oak barrels with wild-caught cultures and 35lbs per barrel of local Blueberry Blossom Honey.
- LA’s Cellador Ales had to cancel the public bottle release of Mellona because it completely sold out during the member pre-sale!
Mellona’s natural ingredients create a relaxing drinking experience that’s oaky, lemony, and oh so refreshing.
Flavors of fresh lemon juice mellow out in oak barrels for a smooth, citrusy brightness. Massive amounts of honey add a silky, slightly floral dryness, balancing the rustic Saison funk. And a touch of spice comes in at the finish, rounding out the sour notes and giving Mellona an almost creamy mouthfeel.
With fresh, local ingredients and a 100% oak-aged lineup, Cellador is rocketing to star status on par with the likes of Hill Farmstead. Bring Mellona to your next bottle share to be sure and wow the crowd. If you don’t, they’ll probably never get to try it.
