Boom Island Saison

This 6.0% ABV saison farmhouse style ale is from Boom Island Brewing Company of Minneapolis, Minnesota. It is bottle conditioned and uses some orange peel in the brew.

The beer pours apricot golden in color. There is a tall, thick, foamy head of off-white. The aroma is very yeasty, very floral, sweet and tart apricots, and dried apricots. The taste follows the aromas, hitting the same notes, and ending in a massive floral bitterness. The finish is also extremely dry. The beer drinks crisp with tingling carbonation. This drinks like a saison with an IPA bitter finish.
