Fulton The Expat Rye Saison

This saison style beer made with rye is from the Fulton Brewing Company of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Ten percent of the profits of this beer go into the Ful10 fund that provides micro loans to entrepreneurs. The beer has 5.7% ABV and 30 IBU's.

The beer pours a gleaming burnt orange and amber. There is a half inch of white to off-white head that fizzles quickly down. The aroma is slightly sweet flowers, yeast, and bread dough. The taste is yeast esters, flowers, with a toasted rye malty note. There are sweet notes, but the finish is fairly dry, with a moderately strong floral bitterness. The beer drinks smooth with a lightly tingling carbonation. If you like floral saisons, this one is for you.
