Beer Notes: Nu Saison

Beyond the Pale Brewing Company (Ottawa, Ontario)

Saison / Farmhouse Ale (4.8%)

Nu Saison

Look: Hazy Lemon yellow, large white head leaves a yarn thick collar and soapy film.

Smell: Earthy, grany pilsner malts, light plum-like fruit note. Light floral and honey tones.

Taste: Again, definitely grainy. Lots of citrus, more bitter than most saisons, Mix of citrus peel, peppery dryness and cereal sweetness in the finish/aftertaste.

Mouth: Medium body and carbonation. Earthy with a light syrupy feeling.

Opinion: Tame for a BTP beer flavour-wise, but absolutely nails the core style. Refreshing, summery addition to their regular lineup. I’d like to see them play with this one a bit.

Food: Creamy, earthy and blue cheeses. Light sausage (summer, hunter salami), spinach salad, cherry tomatoes.
