Beer Review: Mystic An Dreoilin

Beer: An Dreoilin

Comments: This winter beer is a variation on the Mystic Saison fermented at a lower temperature.  It’s a fruity, effervescent beer with floral notes and hints of spice.  I’ll have to give the original saison a try.

Comments: Labeled a Chocolate Rye Porter, the scent and taste are appropriately chocolaty.  The beer pours a mocha brown with a thick head.  In addition to chocolate, the flavor offers bitter hops, cream, and hints of spice.  It’s a complex blend worth spending some time with.
