Town Hall Rustic Rye Saison


Brewed by Minneapolis Town Hall Brewery
Minneapolis, Minnesota USA
Style: Saison | Ratings: 1 | Alcohol: 6.7%
Brewed in the Farmhouse Saison tradition, we brought in authentic Saison yeast for this pale French/Belgian-style beer – a rare appearance at Town Hall. Saison, meaning, “season” in French is a broadly defined pale ale that in modern versions is generally around 7% abv, highly carbonated, fruity, spicy - sometimes from the addition of spices. As a beer style it originated from beers brewed during the cooler and less active months in farmhouses in Wallonia, the French-speaking region of Belgium, and then stored for drinking by the farm workers during the summer months. Styrian Goldings hops grace the hop flavor/aroma stage, as well as a healthy dose of Grains of Paradise – an exotic African pepper with adds spiciness as well as citrus and bubble gum aroma. The malt is composed of German floor-malted Pilsner malt, Vienna malt, Malted Rye, wheat malt, and a dash of Acidulated malt to add crispness and dryness. Rye tends to add a crisp, dry, breadiness to beers, and is well-suited to refreshing Saisons. It is not uncommon to find rye or oats in Saison recipes. You may notice a slight haze from this unfiltered beer. You’ll find this beer to be fruity, spicy, with a dry finish. Another fine beer for the patio!
