North & Western is a dry-hopped Saison style ale. Starting with a base of pilsner malt we infuse this beer with hops from around the globe, both in the boil and with a hefty dose of dry hops in the tank. The result is a complex combination of spicy yeast character with layers of floral, citrus, pone, and fruity hop notes. Drink this one fresh to get the most from the awesome bouquet of hops.

Scipio (837) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Pours a bright and hazy golden with a big, foamy white head. Aroma contains floral hops, Belgian yeast, orange, lemon, and touches of banana. The taste isn’t extremely complex, although I find plenty of flavor. It is big in lemon, spices, and yeast initially, while I find some apple and melon flavors underneath. The aftertaste is quite yeasty with hints of fruit. Mostly dry throughout. Medium body, a sudsy, bubbly texture, and some very fizzy carbonation. Maybe its all of the bubbles or something, but even though it isn’t very potent, the alcohol content makes itself readily known. This is good.

Bottle (750 ml). From Rich, thanks! Clear golden with a frothy white head and good lacing. Aroma is of citrus, yeast, floral notes and moderate well integrated spiciness. Taste is citrusy and yeasty as well with floral notes, light spices and light/moderate bitterness. Medium body. Moderate/medium carbonation. Yeasty finish. Not a spectular rendition of a Saison, but well executed. Good balance and drinkability.

Bottle from Binny’s in Chicago. Batch 438.
Pours cloudy orange with a medium-sized white creamy head. Lots of fruit in the aroma and plenty of spicy Belgian yeast character Rich flavour with a lot of that spice coming through along with some peach and some other sweet fruit. Pretty good. 2014-09-13

With Zach, watching the MLS All Star soccer game, pours a hazy orange golden pour with a massive airy white head. Nose is deep citrus with resin and pine and hops as well. Taste is bitter and citrusy , with a strong predominance of grapefruit....and spices. Finish is bitter and ends on the same tasting notes with a moderately long finish. Quaff Score 8 / 10

Damico (3144) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Pours thick murky orange golden sandy I color with a white head. Aroma brings a blend of sweet juicy citrus hops with the base or wheat-like pilsner malts. Flavor of the hops is the backbone to he saison yeast, with nice juicy orange notes rounding out the farmhouse yeast flavors on a juicy, satiating body.

Bottle... Cloudy, golden pour with a small, fizzy, white head. Decent retention. The nose is doughy with components of floral hops, peaches and apricots. Full-bodied with prickly carbonation. The flavor is a melding of sweet peach nectar and spicy, moderately bitter hops. Finishes tongue-numbing and bittersweet. Bottle courtesy of BBB63!
