Almanac Beer Company Honey Saison
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Almanac Beer Company Honey Saison.
From the Almanac Beer Company website: “Our Honey Saison is a beer for all seasons. Brewed with Bay Area honey from Marshall Farms, wheat, California two-row barley, French oak and fresh, local ginger root for a hint of spice. Balanced with earthy Mount Hood and Saaz hops, this is a refreshing brew enjoyed best with your favorite seasonal fare.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy gold with a huge white head leaving loads of lacing.
Aroma: Grainy, biscuity, honey, some yeasty funk, spice and wheat.
Taste: Honey, bready grains, citrus, a bit of ginger, wheat, a bit of yeast funk and earthy.
Overall: Light and refreshing, Almanac Beer Company Honey Saison drinks more like a Belgian Blonde or a honey and ginger infused Pale Ale. I did enjoy this 4.8% ABV offering and would gladly drink one again if the opportunity presented itself.
