Saison Rustique – Brasserie Dunham


From Dunham Quebec’s Brasserie Dunham comes their “Saison Rustique”.  The beer pours a straw yellow with a white head and some sediment.  The aroma consists of wheat, spices, citrus, yeast and floral hops.  The flavour is of wheat, spices, resin, mild citrus, lots of citrus rind and bitterness.  The alcohol content comes in at 6% with an IBU of 38.  Not my favourite Saison but it is good example of the style.
