Mt. Pleasant Series Limited Release #5 – Saison
EAST VAN: The fifth release in the Mt Pleasant Limited Series, R&B Brewing’s Saison is seasonally inspired by the first signs of spring. Rod Hughes, head brewer and his team collaborated to craft this interesting take on the traditional Belgian style.
“Subtle floral notes of hidcote purple lavender from Happy Valley Farms on Vancouver Island make this an interesting take on a refreshing saison” Hughes said.
French and Belgian yeasts were used to imbibe the beer with spicy and mineral notes and an added touch of infused lavender.
R&B Brewing Co, releases this brew as a celebration of spring, and the imminent opening of their new Taproom. The beer is slated to be released today, with the Taproom opening in late March. Ask your local craft beer purveyor to bring it in — or drop into the R&B Growler Station for a try.
