Saison Deux Fois La Taille – Black Bridge Brewery


From Black Bridge Brewery in Swift Current Saskatchewan comes their “Saison Deux Fois La Taille”.  This was a very special bottle conditioned release.  From my understanding it was their first bottle release as they typically use cans.  The beer pours a cloudy golden colour with a white head.  The aroma consists of citrus, yeast, wheat and some floral hops.  The flavour is of citrus, citrus rind, more fruit, yeast, wheat, pepper, vanilla and a mild alcohol finish.  The alcohol content came in at 8.6%.  This was a really well crafted imperial sasion and I am glad I was able to get my hands on it.
