Steamworks Brewing Co. – Summer Saison Review
The Steamworks brewing company has released their Saison, a summer wheat ale designed for those hot summer days on the deck. This beer pours with three fingers of head on top a hazy straw coloured beer. The malt, wheat, citrus and a light skunky-ness come through in the nose of this beer with a touch of hop bitterness. The flavour is crisp and bright with citrus and light wheat notes taking charge. The crisp flavour builds into a hop bitter finish that is stronger than expected. While the aroma forecast a slightly skunky beer the flavour is actually quite nice. The crisp start and hopped finish give a nice balance of flavour that is both refreshing and flavourful. This is a great option for the upcoming hot town, summer in the city.
