Notes

A thirst quenching and light hybrid between lager and saison styles. This beer turned out great. I dry hopped with Citra, but found the Citra flavour dominated while the beer was young. After it had aged a bit the distinctive saison flavour came through. It has an almost champagne-like nose and benefits from a high level of carbonation and chilling well before serving.
