COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
India Saison is the hoppy, crisp and refreshing result of a north south collaboration. Classic Belgian malts and yeast, pungent Australian new hop varieties and clean Norwegian water. Served chilled and enjoy with cheeses and charcuterie. This product is bottle conditioned and has a slight sediment at the bottom of the bottle.

Sample at Stocholm Beer & Wiskey Festival 2012. I love saisons, in this beer i’ll expect something more sourness. fresh hops cover the saison experience.

Leighton (13647) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2012
Draft at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. Pours a mildly hazy yellow with a fine, white foam head. Dry yeast and light grass on the nose. Medium sweet flavor, light tangy and zesty lemon, fine grass, yeast. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Dry to finish with a good bit of sun-kissed, grassy hops, pale malts. Overall very nice. Well balanced and super crisp.

I really enjoyed this collaboration. It has some rough metallic flavor notes at first but when it warms upped it really shone. Nice amount of that floral/grassy Australian hop character. The alcohol is masked quite well.
