If you have been to Rising Tide in recent weeks you have probably met Calypso, Nathan and Heather’s new puppy. They decided to brew a beer for the new puppy and made it a very sessionable saison at 3.5% ABV.
Seems like everyone is making saisons now when just a few years ago they were almost non-existent. I have found this to be a good thing as I really enjoy the style and there is so much that can be done with them. Color is a nice pale orange with only a whisp of a head. Aroma is minimal but some earthy yeast comes through. Taste has a bit of spice with a nice dry finish that leaves you wanting more.
Overall this is a simple but tasty saison from Rising Tide and something I hope they bring back next summer as it truly is a session beer worthy of a 64 ounce growler.
