Day 163 Drink: Saison du BUFF
Stone Brewing, Victory Brewing and Dogfish Head Brewing make some of the best beers in America. In 2003, they came together to form form Brewers United for Freedom of Flavor (BUFF). It would be seven years before the group came back together to brew a collaboration beer.
The plan is for the three brewers to make Saison du BUFF at three different times. Stone was the first, making this beer to April.
Saison du BUFF is a 6 percent alohol by volune beer with a lovely aroma that is supported by parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme used in the brewing. The flavor is a combination of floral, citrus and the spices. Lots of what you would expect in saison and some things you would not. Worth trying.
