Rise Up Rye Saison by Gun Hill Brewing Co
Brewery: Gun Hill Brewing Co
Beer Style: Rye Saison
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.
The 4.8 percent alcohol ale is brewed with rye, barley, New Zealand Wai-iti hops and saison yeast.
