Japanese Biere De Garde – Granville Island Brewing

From Granville Island Brewing out of Vancouver comes their new “Japanese Biere De Garde” a new release in their 2017 Cellar Series.  The beer pours an orange colour with a white head.  The aroma consists of citrus, clove, Belgian yeast and floral hops.  The flavour is of lemon, citrus rind, pith, clove, pepper, mild pickles, earth, Belgian yeast and a hint of bitterness.  The alcohol content comes in at 9.5% with an IBU of 54.  Kevin Emms has come up with a really interesting beer here and I look forward to seeing what my second bottle does over time.  Granville Island Brewing is owned by Molson Coors.

Commercial Description:  East meets West in this rare farmhouse ale. Rice, Japanese Sorachi Ace, hops and Belgian saison yeasts create a heady mix of dill pickle, pepper and clove notes atop a strong, light ale body . Pair with chicken fettuccine pasta.
