Saison Series: Summer Night

2013-04-30 18.28.40

I am drinking a glass of the second beer in the Saison Series–Summer Night: a raspberry dark saison.  Made with toasty vienna malt, chocolate wheat malt, dark candi syrup, and Heritage raspberries, this beer is complex: dark yet dry, chocolately yet crisp and subtle, with a pleasant malt backbone and touch of raspberry flavor.  It is very drinkable, stopping just short of roasty.  French saison yeast leaves a velvety mouthfeel but super dry finish.  I can only compare it to drinking some very good dark chocolate with a bit of raspberry.

This is a brand new style of beer that a few breweries are starting to experiment with.  I think that I hit the nail on the head with my interpretation and would literally change nothing from the first time I brewed it.  This is a wonderful beer that is totally unique and I cannot wait to share it with you all.
