Santa Fe Brewing Saison 88

This 5.5% ABV saison is from the Santa Fe Brewing Company of beautiful Santa Fe, New Mexico. It celebrates that they launched in 1988, celebrating their 25th anniversary in 2013.

The beer pours a hazy lemon meringue yellow. There is a tall, foamy, white head, thick and ragged. The aroma is very floral, lemony, with some earthiness and woodiness, and a bit of dusty old leather. The taste follows the aromas, but they are nice and airy, not heavy or overwhelming. It drinks very carbonated, refreshing, dry with a moderate floral bitterness on the finish. This is one very well done American saison, a must try!
