Brett Zeste Saison – Microbrasserie Le Castor

From Microbrasserie Le Castor in Rigaud Quebec comes their “Brett Zeste Saison”.  The beer pours a cloudy orange with a white head.  The aroma consists of lemon, citrus zest, mild brett funk and some sweetness.  The flavour is of citrus zest, lemon, yeast, wheat, rye spice, pepper, herbs, resin, mild Brettanomyces and some bitterness.  The alcohol content comes in at 5%.  This was a very interesting Saison and I would recommend picking up a bottle if you can find it.

Commercial Description:  As spring breezes refresh our spirits and make us think of warmer months ahead, so too will this tribute to traditional Belgian farmhouse ales. Brewed with authentic saison & wild Brettanomyces yeasts, we have added a lot of citrus zest & juice to the mix. Throw in some cracked pepper, and classic rustic yeast character, and you’ve got a refreshingly dry companion to your summer thirst.
