Another Brew to Watch For - SAISON

ANOTHER AMAZING BREW TO WATCH FOR!  SAISON!

BEGINING IN NOVEMBER WE WILL HAVE OUR SAISON ON TAP.  WE ARE STARTING OFF THE SEASON RIGHT WITH THIS LOOSELY DEFINED BELGIAN STYLE OF REFRESHING SPICY ALE. FARMHOUSE BREWERIES USUALLY BREWED SAISON IN FALL AND WINTER WITH INDIVIDUAL FARMS HAVING THEIR OWN RECIPES AND FLAVORS WITH INGREDIENTS THAT WERE GROWN ON THAT FARM.

OUR SAISON WILL START WITH BOHEMIAN STYLE GOLDEN PILSNER MALT AND ADD A BACKBONE OF HARVEST GRAINS, OATS AND RYE. TO FURTHER THE SPIRIT OF THE HARVEST WE HAVE ADDED FRESH SPICES DUTCH POPPY SEED, LEMON PEEL, WHITE PEPPERCORN, AND CORIANDER FROM MILWAUKEE SPICE HOUSE.  WE ALSO USED CZECH SAAZ AND GERMAN TETNANGER HOPS.

THE RESULT IS A COPPER COLORED ALE WITH OVERTONES OF BREAD SPICED WITH HINTS OF CITRIC FRUIT AND PEPPER. IT WILL BE AGED TO DISGUISE ITS 7% ALCOHOL CONTENT AND WILL BE ON TAP AT ALL THREE WATER STREET BREWERY LOCATIONS STARTING IN EARLY NOVEMBER.
