DOGFISH HEAD SAISON DU BUFF
Brewed in conjunction with established microbrewers Stone and Victory, heady yellow-hazed Saison salutes Simon & Garfunkle’s popular ’66 album with parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme herbage. Creamy caramelized rye breading reaches herbaceous black-peppered rosemary summit above lemon-seeded grapefruit-peeled bittering that lingers to caraway-seeded harsh-grained finish. Dry earthen barnyard blanch, dark floral potpourri, and fennel-like respite add depth to everlasting tangerine tang of interesting 2010 sidestep. 2012 tapped version brought lemon-rotted orange peel tang to candi-sugared saffron, oats-dried minerality and grassy-hopped spicing.
