WHAT WE’RE DRINKING:

Brittany

  • Beer: Nadia Kali

  • Brewery: Great Divide

  • Style: Hibiscus Saison

  • ABV: 6.3%

  • IBUs: N/A

  • Beer Advocate Score: 3.69/5

  • Brewery’s description: Nadia Kali is an inspired saison with cross-cultural influence. Nadia’s ruby pink glow comes from a generous infusion of hibiscus, while ginger root gives it a subtle spice and hint of woodsy maturity, and lemon peel adds a citrus tartness to keep you on your toes. Full of complexity and intrigue, this unfiltered beauty will show you just how deceiving looks can be.

Justin

  • Beer: Tank 7 Farmhouse Ale

  • Brewery: Boulevard Brewing

  • Style: Farmhouse ale

  • ABV:  8.5%

  • IBUs: 38

  • Beer Advocate Score: 4.17

  • Brewery’s description: When our brewers were experimenting with variations on a traditional Belgian-style farmhouse ale, the perfect combination of elements came together in fermenter number seven. You could call it fate, but they called it Tank 7, and so it is. Beginning with a big surge of fruity aromatics and grapefruit-hoppy notes, the flavor of this complex, straw-colored ale tapers off to a peppery, dry finish.

Christopher

  • Beer: Hennepin Farmhouse Saison

  • Brewery: Brewery Ommegang

  • Style: Saison

  • ABV:  7.7%

  • IBUs: 24

  • Beer Advocate Score:4.15

  • Brewery’s description:This style is a farmhouse ale, and is considered to be in the domain of the Belgian Saisons. Hennepin is a delicious brew for all seasons, it is spicy and refreshing. A moderately hoppy, farmhouse-style ale with a champagne-like effervescence, Hennepin has a crisp start followed by malt sweetness balanced with a firm bitterness. Hennepin has a bounty of great flavors: ginger, spice, orange and toasted grain. Pouring a bright golden color with a spicy-sweet balance of orange peel, sweet malt, hops and ginger, Hennepin makes way for a dry finish with a slight bite of ginger.
