From Torque Brewing in Winnipeg Manitoba comes their “INSEPT1ON Saison” a beer aged in French Oak red wine barrels. The beer pours a yellow colour with a white head. The aroma consists of saison yeast, spices, oak, citrus and some wine in the finish. The flavour is of wine, oak, yeast, pepper, bready malt, lemon and generic citrus with a mild bitterness. The alcohol content comes in at 6%. I really enjoyed this wine barrel aged saison and I hope they do more beers like this in the future.
Commercial Description: Aged 6 months in French oak red wine barrels, this bottle conditioned Saison is both refreshing and light with hints of oak and vanilla.
