GABF: Unleashing Flying Dog Colorado Saison
Flying Dog, a creative Colorado brewery, used Thursday as an opportunity to roll out a new farmhouse ale, Flying Dog Colorado Saison, at a reception at the Blake Street Tavern that is the brewery's Denver home.
The 7.3 percent alcohol by volume brew is a cloudy golden color and has a classic saison flavor. Flying Dog used imported Belgian barley and wheat malt, along with Belgian candi sugar. Styrian Goldings, Czech Saaz hops and a range of spices are used to build the brew's flavor profile. The result is a fruity beer that has a nice lingering aftertaste.
