East of East Van Saison – Steamworks Brewing (Dageraad Brewing)

From Steamworks Brewing in Collaboration with Dageraad Brewing both located in Burnaby comes their “East of East Van” Saison.  The beer was brewed at Steamworks Brewing and bottled with Dageraad Brewings hand bottler.  It was then transferred to Dageraad Brewing to be bottle conditioned at Dageraad.  The beer pours a cloudy orange colour with a white head.  The aroma consists of pepper, lime and Belgian yeast.  The flavour is of pepper, lime, citrus peel, Belgian yeast and some malts in the finish.  The alcohol content comes in at 6.5% with an IBU of 25.  This was a really enjoyable collaboration with lots of complexity.

Commercial Description: Steamworks has been busy collaborating with their fellow Burnaby based brewers at Dageraad Brewing. Aptly named the “East of East Van Bottle Conditioned Saison”, these two river city brewers have crafted a beer worth crossing Boundary Ave for. This exotic saison features black lime and white pepper, which gives it a spicy aroma, crisp flavor and dry finish. Steamworks brewmaster Julia Hanlon expands upon the release: “We wanted to celebrate our brewery’s Burnaby roots with our friends at Dageraad. The addition of black limes make for a really unique release and it’s our first Bottle Conditioned beer at Steamworks, who better to team up with, than Dageraad, who are experts at the art of bottle conditioning!”.
