Your Daily Pint for Wednesday, March 12, 2014 is: BISON SAISON DE WENCH
What it is: a 6%-ABV saison brewed with rose petals, hibiscus and lemongrass
What it tastes like: A citrusy, herbal perfume augments a wonderfully fluffy swallow that’s colored with fresh garden flavors. Floral rose and fruity, fragrant hibiscus lace through a spritzy wash of bready malts; subtle lemongrass and white pepper focus the swallow as a dry, refreshing finish settles in.
Good for the environment: The Berkeley brewery became the first B Corp certified brewery in 2010. According to B Corporation, “B Corp is to sustainable what Fair Trade certification is to coffee or USDA Organic certification is to milk.” Bonus: Bison is also USDA certified organic.
Pair this with: The brewery suggests drinking this one alongside roasted chicken or mussels. We’ll double down on the chicken, and suggest pairing it with this herbal roasted chicken recipe.
Other Bison beers: One of our favorites is Hop Cuvee, an IPA recipe that changes every year and spotlights the best organic hops available each season.
