Hunter beer co. ‘summer saison’ Saison


imageTried this little summer beauty on tap in a tasting paddle at Potters brewery in the hunter valley. Milky straw yellow pour produces a thin but bubbly compacted white head that retains well with reasonable lacing. The aroma is lovely with a good balance of yeasty funk, peppery spice, sour lemon, barnyard and malty sweetness. Mildly carbonated with a silky soft mouth feel. Really light on. Upfront the slightly funky flavours mix really well with the soft spice and lemon. This carries through on to the mid-palate which then delivers a light spicy, citrus finish with hints of orange peel on the back end. Really easy drinking and refreshing saison. Perfect for a hot summer’s day, we’d definitely return for another one of these.
