As the days get shorter and the nights get colder it is time for a beer to warm the soul. Stepping things up in the Eurus Series of beers is Four Winds with their new Sovereign Super Saison at a potent 8.5%. This beer pours from the champagne corked bottle in a lightly cloudy, golden hue topped with four fingers of densely packed head. The Sovereign smells of a strong saison with strong belgian yeast tones, coriander, grapefruit and a touch of booze. The body resembles a high alcohol beer with wheat tones, yeast and a delicious belgian spice. Buildign through the profile is a citrus spice along with slight boozyness. Hops add a touch of depth to the flavour but do not have any defined bitterness to the profile. This is another great beer from Four Winds Brewing Co.
