Of course for Secret Santa this year, my brother got me, and of course, he bought me beer. But beer from a small brew pub in Toronto that has random “pop up” retail sessions only advertised through Twitter. Amazing! He said that he had to wait in line for about an hour to get the 4 bottles he gave me. That’s dedication for the cause.
He mentioned that he wanted to try the Saison since that’s one that he hadn’t had before (and after this, I don’t think will again). Out of the bottle it smelled like a nice wheat beer. It poured out copper coloured and then once it aired out a bit, it smelled like citrus.
At first taste, it was wheat beerish with a hint of orange. Then the beer booty hit. DAMN! That was one hell of an aftertaste. It kind of just lingered for a few minutes. It’s definitely not for the inexperienced beer drinker.
He may not have liked it, but I did. I can’t wait do drink the other 3 massive bottles.
