Steamroller, an extra pale well hopped saison is back for 2014. The beer uses pilsener malt combined with a blend of perle, cascade, and centennial hops in the kettle, plus a light dryhopping of columbus to create a brew that’s aromatic and flavorful but easy drinking at only 4.25%.

Draft at brouwers. Pours hazy gold with rocky, quickly dissipating white head. Aroma: over-ripe, on the verge of rotting fruit. Floral hops, lemon citrus. Taste: lightly sweet start, floral, mineral, cracker, finishes short and dry. Light body, crisp texture, lively carbonation. Overall: respectable.

vyvvy (5895) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 22, 2014
On tap at the brewery - Pours hazy pale yellow with an off-white head. The aroma has lots of grapefruit, pine, pale malt and some tropical notes. It has a medium / light husky body with a moderate amount of carbonation. The flavor starts off with husky grainy malt and hops showing earth, grapefruit zest and pine. Its on the resiny side. The finish comes off with raw ingredient aspect - green leafy hoppiness and husk. Very enjoyable.

pdx77 (1483) - Oregon, USA - MAY 26, 2013
On draught at Bazi Bierbrasserie. Light golden color. Funky, yeasty, hoppy aroma. Like a saison with IPA qualities. Flavor is saison with peppery, bitter hops. Finishes a little more astringent than I’d like.

mcberko (14690) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 31, 2013
On tap at Upright, pours a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is very rustic, full of farmhouse notes, bready notes and funk. Flavour is full of funk, rustic qualities, and fresh crusty bread – very funky and rustic, full of bite. Full-flavoured and highly thirst-quenching. Delicious stuff.
