BEER Two Beer Deluxe Red Star Red Rye Saison BREWERS NOTES: Wilson Hede The beer is based upon the idea of creating a Saison that reflects the core principles of Saisons and seasonal beer as well as the transition from Winter to Spring. The beer is designed to have the rich toasty and melanoidin malt characters married with typical Belgian Saison yeast characters and dryness. Malted U.S. Rye was used to provide a full mouthfeel and a spicy, dry finish. It is backed by restrained hop additions of Hersbrucker to provide balance and let the yeast strain and the malt do the talking. The rich amber red colour, is dulled a little by the yeast haze, a result of no filtration, but should clarify over time. Sharp Saison yeast aroma is mixed with sweet bread/toffee notes owing to use of Melanoidin and rye. Quite a complex flavour profile: Initially the pallet is a hit with sharp Saison acidity, but then over- run by full toffee malt characters. Then the Rye kicks in, bready - like 100% rye bread, chewy and a touch of asstringency. You will want more, if only to try work out what exactly is going on in this beer! .INGREDIENTS: Malt: Vienna, Pilsner, Melanoidin Cara Red, Rye and Rice hulls. Hops: Hersbrucker Yeast: Wyeast Belgian Saison. VITAL STATS: ABV: 6.2% OG:1.056 IBUs:15-20 FG:1.009 Not filtered or pasteurised.

Beer Deluxe (3-Oct-12) Very light fruit and sarsparilla spice aroma. Lovely deep red-brown colour, decent head and nice sheet lacing. Light sweet raspberry wheat flavour. Soft creamy mouthfeel, light raspberry finish and raspberry light spice aftertaste.

On tap at Archive. Thin white head that fades quickly. Nice rye in the flavour with the aroma being fairly mild. Sits well in the mouth. This is a good beer that is very easy to drink.
