Today I moved away from the IPAs … I’ve been on a long kick with them … but I think it’s just because I’m catching up from my six months away from them. Plus, I really like IPAs. Oh well. Another of my favorite styles is the Saison. I was at Whole Foods today and ran across this beer. My daughter collects bottle caps so we were looking at beers from that perspective. The Heavy Seas brewery has a pretty cool bottle cap…especially if you like pirates, which she does. Then I looked at the Bottle: Red Sky at Night. I couldn’t tell what this beer was until I looked closer. As soon as I saw it was a Saison, I got a sixer. ha ha!
If you are really observant, you’ll see that this is poured in a Schneider-Weisse Beer glass — I’d just enjoyed an Aventinus before trying this Saison. That may have clouded my judgement a little. This was a decent Saison … once I was halfway through with it, the flavor of the Saison really started coming through … that subtle wheat … nice mouthfeel. Yes, I will drink the rest of my six-pack, unless my daughter beats me to it! LOL!
