Central City/Parallel 49 2015 Craft Crossing Calendar Day #4

  • My Rating: [B-]

The Dominator Dominic’s Brett Saison – Central City Brewing, 6.5% ABV – 330ml., (Surrey, BC, Canada)

on the front-left label:

“Don’t let the Dominator escape! In honour of the now alumni brewer Dominic Giraldes, this brett saison is complex, with a touch of a sour note. The beer pays homage to the farmhouse ale beer style, with our own touch of west coast.”

  • Style: Saison
  • Taste: Citrusy sweet banana lemony wheat malt almost salty
  • Do I love this enough to drink it again: no
  • Would I recommend this to beer aficionados: decent, wouldn’t seek it out

Visual: Pours translucent pale orange without any sizable head, thin half layer of micro retention, lots of steady large CO2 streams.

Nose: orange citrus, banana wheat malt, traces of funk. (lvl-4)-pungency

Attack: crisp-fizzy-tingly, incoming citrus sweet

Mid-palate: (lvl-5)-sweetness, (MAIN) light pukey, sweet banana wheat malt, lemon -> tangy, almost salty

Finish: lingering sweet malt, light palate roughness.

Summary: Overall a very drinkable saison with enjoyable citrus and wheat elements. Good texture and tanginess as well.
