Saison – Granville Island Brewing

Seasonal

From Granville Island Brewing comes their Limited Edition “Saison”.  This beer is a Belgian style farmhouse ale.  The appearance of the beer is a pale yellow with a white head.  The aroma is full of fruity, sweet and yeasty notes.  Being a Belgian style there is a very different taste to this beer than what GIB drinkers will be used to.  This beer has a ton of flavor with malts, fruit a mild sweetness and a decent hops bitterness.  The beer comes in at an alcohol content of 6.5% and an IBU of 30.  This beer is very bold for Granville Island Brewing and they hit it right on!  This is a great beer.

The bottle recommends a food pairing of “Tai curried muscles”.
