Open Saison pours a bright yellow, and is packed with complex aromas of citrus peel, cracked pepper, subtle notes of bread, and fresh herbs. The mouthfeel has lively carbonation, with firm, but balanced bitterness, and a crisp, dry finish that makes Saison one of the most thirst quenching styles out there today.
Brewed in the style of the Belgian Saison, known as the world over as one of Belgium’s most refreshing and complex styles of beer. Modern craft versions can run the gamut in terms of flavour and character, some employ the use of the slow-acting yeast, Brettanomyces, which creates some funky aromas of leather, barnyard, and sometimes vibrant tropical fruits. The Bogside Saison however, chose the “clean” version, without any Brett, this beer is all about bright citrus and spice notes.
