Beyond the Pale Saison Tropicale
For the Saison Tropicale we used a good amount of Rye and Oats to improve the mouthfeel and complexity of the spicyness of the Saison yeast. We adjusted the water with 5 mineral salts to accentuate the flavours we wanted. Finally we dry hopped the beer with juicy & fruity hops. This beer is quite dry however the mouthfeel is quite pleasant because of our grain bill strategy. Tastes and aroma of cantaloupe, pineapple, passion fruit, lychee and guava fill your mouth and nose all culminating with a refreshing, spicy and slightly tart finish.
Fruity esters dominate the aroma. Clarity is good with a large foamy head on top. The addition of several spices and herbs create a complex fruity or citrusy flavor. Light to medium bodied with very high carbonation. Alcohol level is medium to high.
