Beer Release: Not Shawn’s Saison

saison_scLast week we introduced a new brew at Boundary Bay; Not Shawn’s Saison. It’s the third beer in our new Galbraith Mountain Series, with more recipes on the way. Named after Galbraith Mt. Trails, this series indends to capture a taste of the outdoors and the spirit of the PNW. Here’s what our Brewer Bryan had to say about Not Shawn’s:

In the style of a traditional Belgian, Farmhouse Saison, “Not Shawn’s Saison” is a balanced, dry, crisp, and memorable beer. At 6% ABV, it is a truly sessionable ale. It is brite as crystal and a mellow, golden-orange color and is never filtered. We gave this brew a little extra time and cellar-love to allow for the lemon, bubblegum, and melon aromas and superbly balanced, continental malt characters to fully develop. Styrian Golding noble hops harmonize incredibly well with the biscuit and grain flavors from pilsner malt. With a slight tang and just a touch of spicy rye malt and lemony citrus notes from New Zealand Pacific Gem Hops, this beer is complex, smooth, and refreshing – and leaves you wanting another! Let it warm a little in the glass to release even more of Not Shawn’s special aromas and flavors. You’d never know you aren’t in Brussels… “Sante!”
