Spinnaker's Brewery Hummingbird Hop Saison Review Spinnaker’s Brewing co. – Hummingbird Hop Saison Review

The Hummingbird Hop Saison is a beer brewed with Pilsner malt, oats and is dry hopped with a new-world hop for a modern twist on the classic Saison style. From the bomber bottle this beer pours a hazy, golden-straw colour with three fingers of loose, and quick to settle head. The aroma is light with notes of wheat, light coriander and a citrus-hop character. Tasting the beer it is light in body with a wheat-like dryness to the mouthfeel. The citrus hop character hits the palate up front and blends with the Saison yeast flavours. While the beer is not bitter, the hops take control of the flavour giving a lemon-orange infusion to the summer flavour.
