All hail saison… YES HAIL SAIIIIISON!

So, we’re hanging out at Escape Goat, this funky little dive in Parkdale, just east of Little Tibet. When I first saw this place, I thought it was a little Tibetan joint with a funny name, but it turns out there’s no momos here, bro! Instead, they’re pouring a whole buncha fresh ‘n funky local craft beers, like this Black Funeral in Flavourtown… Hail Saison by Blood Brothers!

This hazy blonde saison is brewed with honeydew, which is probably the most evil of melons. Lotsa head on this one, too, although it’s not too strong at 5% and it’s got a nice, fruity aftertaste, too. Maybe not my go-to beer for a ritual sacrifice, but still pretty tasty…

After that, we’re kicking things up a notch with False Awakening, a funky coffee IPA from Rorschach Brewing. This beer’s got a strong coffee kick, but still has the fruity bitterness of an IPA… What in the name of King Diamond is this???
