Sensational Saisons kick off St Kilda Ale Stars for 2012
The fantastic line-up of saisons couldn't have been more welcome on the balmy summers evening that was the first Ale Star session of 2012.
The session kicked off with La Sirene Brewing's 'La Sirene' presented in a beautiful 650ml bottle. At a modest and 'average' 6.5% (the lowest ABV of the evening), this saison delivered a truly fantastic start to proceedings.
The next two saisons were from the tap, 'Avec Les Bons Voeux' from Brassarie Dupont (Belgium) and the 'Le Merle' from North Coast Brewery Co (USA), and again both outstanding.
The last saison of the night was the 'Saison Sauvin' from New Zealand's 8 Wired Brewery and again was a beer that did not disappoint. Their new world interpretation of this style saw funky, earthy flavours followed by a kick from the Nelson Sauvin hops.
An overall great night with fantastic beers. Everyone's hard earned thirst was definitely quenched!
