North & Western by Pipeworks Brewing Company
Saison / Farmhouse Ale
7.00 % ABV

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.

(Served in a tulip glass)
Batch # 46
A- This beer pours a thick creamy off-white head which is supported by a clear deep copper body and a strong carbonation of tiny bubbles popping to the surface.

S- The full fruit cocktail hops fade into a pine hop resin aroma in the finish. Hints of saison yeast come through only when the beer is really warm.

T- The soft yeasty flavor gives way to some unripe fruit cocktail hops flavors that grow. There is a nice white cheese rind note that lingers a bit in the finish along with the hop flavor. Some soft chalky notes come through as the beer opens up a bit aswell.

M- The spicy fizz scrubs the flavor in the finish and there is no alcohol heat noticed.

O- This nice saison yeast character supports the tasty fruit cocktail hops and the scrubbing fizz makes this very drinkable.

Served In: Tulip
