Old Abbey Ales Dry Hopped Saison ReviewOld Abbey Ales – Dry Hop Saison Review

Old Abbey Ales has become well known for their Innovation Series of limited release beers. In the lineup comes the Dry Hop Saison. From the 650ml bomber bottle comes a beer that appears as a slightly cloudy, dark-golden colour with three fingers of lightly lacing head. From the Dry Hop Saison comes a citrus aroma with spicy-pepper and a thick wheat tone on the nose. A hop bitterness pairs with an orange-peel like aroma to add a little something extra into the brew. The body is mid-weight with a fairly strong carbonation factor. The flavour has an initial hit of citrus and a kick of booziness before the pepper spice kicks in. As the pepper continues to grow, the hop character also emerges making for a complex and rather deep, bitter finish. A nice combination of pepper, citrus and hop bitterness with a boozy kick make this beer a tasty and rather unique take on the Saison style.

“Like summer sun in a hayfield. Spicy black pepper and orange zest on the palate. Noble hops give subtle bitterness and structure.”
