Deep Cove Brewers & Distillers – Sun Kissed Tea Saison Review

Something unique has come from the team at Deep Cove Brewers and Distillers in the form of the Sun Kissed Tea Saison. This golden straw coloured beer pours into the glass with two fingers of head which settles quite quickly. The beer smells of a light, mid-sweet Saison. The green tea content is rather subtle and not reaching out to grab you. In fact the flavour is fairly hidden but knowing that it is in there gives the flavour some reference. The flavour is light and very easy drinking. Starting off with a light Saison flavour it builds slowly and leaves a light, green tea finish that is surprisingly pleasant. This is a very easy drinking Saison but the tea somehow adds depth without any harshness, sweetness or bitterness. This is one of those things that is sort of indescribable but tastes really quite nice and should be on every beer lovers hit list of BC craft beers.

Alcohol – 5.0%
Size – 650ml bottles
Price – $5.20 (Deep Cove Brewers & Distillers)
