Patio Saison – Steel Toad Brewpub

From Steel Toad Brewpub in Vancouver comes their “Patio Saison”.  The beer pours a cloudy orange colour with a white head.  The aroma consists of peppery notes, lemon and yeast.  The flavour is of pepper, spice, yeast, citrus, citrus rind with low bitterness levels.  This beer is not super dry but it is also not overly sweet.  The alcohol content comes in at 5% with an IBU of 25.  Personally this is exactly what I am looking for in a good saison.  you can pick up a growler fill right now at the brew pub.

Commercial Description:  Citrus and pepper from the farmhouse ale yeast used in this beer dominate the palate.  Unlike the traditional ultra dry beers typical of the saison style, this beer is brewed with a healthy quantity of flaked oats to give it a fuller body.  This allows a lower alcohol content that makes this a perfect beer for sessions on the patio.
