Saison Station 55 is a red beer with veiled aspect, the taste of malt, hops and spices reminiscent of citrus coupled with a bitter finish. The 55 wants to be a hybrid between a Belgian beer terroir and IPA American type. It is seen against the brewing revival in Belgium.

Thanks for sharing! 750 ml. bottle sampled @ Beer Temple during Carnivale Brettanomyces #4. Hazy orange, little white head. Nose is light wheat, orange, grain, malty & some sugar. Taste is a bit dull grainy orange, rye bread, orange, sugar, malt, pepper, citrus,… Grainy body,… Okay but a bit non-descript. Another highly rated Canadian beer that I just don’t get.

TET (2054) - FINLAND - MAY 30, 2015
A slightly orange colour, a head is blond, big and dense. Aroma is great, sweet mandarin and papaiyas, also fruitness from yeast, europian hops. Taste is fruitful, oranges, medium and flower hoppyness, also nice sourness. Medium+ bodied, good carbonation, the body could be lighter. Aromatic and enjoyable beer. Very tasteful and remind me from the great Rulles’s beer, thus the brewer is the right way.
