Godspeed Brewery • Canada
Beginning as a saison and finishing as something more enigmatic, Yuzu combines Japanese citrus and Belgian yeast with restrained hopping to create a light, lively beer accentuated by a mild tartness and minerality. Yuzu is a tremendously aromatic fruit: you’ll smell the beer being poured from across the room. The combination of fruit and saison creates a dramatic nose of freshly-peeled clementines, all pith and bright orange. The acidity helps smooth and hone the minerality that gives the simple beer complexity and allows for a crisp yet memorable finish.
