Cannery Brewing Co. – Red Dawn Saison Review

Following their Baltic Porter in the Artisan Creation series of Cannery Brewing beers is the Red Dawn. This is a Red Saison who’s brightly and strongly labeled beer pours a name-suiting reddish, copper colour topped with three full fingers of lacing head. The smell is of wheat and a yeasty tone typical of a Saison. The ‘red’ aspect gives a bit of a bite and a touch of sweetness to the aroma. The flavour is unique where it starts off with a relatively large body of lightly hopped, wheat-tones and a bit of a spice to it. The finish is surprisingly light but has a bit of a hop-bite to it along with a lingering wheat taste. The Red dawn has the quintessential notes of a Saison but adds a uniqueness and complexity with a darker, more full flavour. This is a great tasting beer that adds a little more colour to the palate than your typical summer Saison.
