Hummingbird Hop Saison – Spinnakers Gastro Brewpub

From Spinnakers Gastro Brewpub in Victoria BC comes the “Hummingbird Hop Saison”.  The beer pours a golden colour with a good amount of haze and a white head.  The aroma consists of wheat, yeast, citrus and grassy hops.  The flavour is of wheat, yeast, citrus rind, citrus, pepper, maybe a little astringent, bitterness with a very dry finish.  The alcohol content comes in at 5.5% with an IBU of 39.  This is definitely more bitter than your average saison but it is pretty darn tasty.

Commercial Description:  A West Coast take on a classic style. Brewed with Pilsner malt and oats this medium bodied beer balances the spicy characteristics of a saison with a pleasant bitterness an citrus note thanks to a blended, new world dry hop addition. The refreshingly dry finish will have you humming for more!
