Beer God’s Notes

Original Tasting Notes:  (If they tell my story I am either going to die on the battlefield in glory or) Rise Up Rye Saison Hamilton Legacy (I love Hamilton and had to have this beer). @gunhillbrewery (also my 3rd GH beer tonight)

I didn’t drink my Gun Hill Beers in order, and this was the third beer I drank that night.  But to be honest, the rye combined with the saison yeast still stood out to me.  This beer had a ton of character and grit (similar to Hamilton).

Saison’s aren’t my favorite (but they’re not on my avoid list either).  But, I really found myself enjoying this.  I think that the notes that the rye added to this really helped me enjoy this.
