COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.
