The Festive Winter Saison – Dead Frog Brewing

Winter Seasonal

Dead Frog Brewing out of Aldergrove BC has launched an all new lineup of beers and wiped out all but one of their old brews.  Their new “The Festive Winter Saison” is one of their new seasonal staples available in both six packs and mixed 12 packs.  The saison pours a deep amber colour with an off white head.  The aroma is composed of fruity, yeasty, malty notes with a peppery finish.  The flavour is of yeast, fruits, pilsner and roasted malts, pepper, spices and a very mild chocolate finish.  The alcohol content comes in at 5.5% with an IBU of 20.  This is not your standard Saison for sure but it is has a very pleasing flavour and finish.  It is called a Winter Saison for a reason!

Commercial Description:  A deep amber saison with a slightly sweet malt profile and hints of fruit & spice to celebrate the season. Franco-Belgian malts provide a rich malt base that is accentuated by a warm finish with a hint of festive spices & sweetness.

  1. I have not tried the bottles of this (commitment to a sampler is tough) I did try this on tap at the Hop and Vine Brewmaster’s Dinner. Quite a nice seasonal offering. Wish it came in bombers!

    Interesting! I’ve been curious to see what their new lineup is like. I’d had a few in the past and was never really that impressed (other than with Valiant), but when I heard they revamped their line and got back to their roots I figured I should give them a second chance.
