Saison DuPump by Great Lakes Beer (Canada)
Brewery: Great Lakes Beer
Beer Style: Saison (or a Pumpkin beer with Saison yeast)
Beer God’s Notes
Original Tasting Notes: this was absolutely excellent. Light with a lot of pumpkin spice without being overly “spiced”
This is excellent. Honestly, this might be one of the best pumpkin beers I’ve ever had. It was light and airy and really allowed the pumpkin spices to play with the flavor. A lot of times pumpkin beers are really heavy. Saison DuPump went the total other way and I love it!
*One fine autumn day, one of our assistant brewers accidentally pitched saison yeast into a freshly brewed batch of our pumpkin ale. While we all chastised him, the young brewer had faith that he had created something with potential. Well, the lad was right and Saison DuPump was born.
*Note, the above story is entirely fabricated.
Another unique offering from GLB, a Belgian Saison with pumpkin spices.
