Pipeworks Brewing Co. North & Western Dry Hopped Saison Style Ale
Now that Pipeworks has foolishly given away their coordinates, you can bother them at the source all you want. All kidding aside, please don't interfere with their activities. I shared a bottle of this saison style ale when it first appeared. Delightful times, delightful times. Hoping to recapture that high, I scurried from random bottle shop to random bottle shop, hoping to locate another bottle of this aphrodisiac. Well, I went to one of two shops that happen to have a good selection of neato bottles that not many seem to have discovered. And there it was. North & Western Dry Hopped Saison.
North & Western is a golden amber colored saison with a nice head that leaves good lacing. The aroma is of saison yeast. There's a sweet saison opening, light body, and well balanced hoppy, dry finish. There are a lot of hops in this saison. What more could you want from this very straightforward saison? Now good luck finding a bottle of your own. . .
