Do you ever feel misunderstood? Like the message you're trying to get across is just not being heard and that you, yourself are just a construction of what other people think of you? That's kinda how I'm feeling today. So I want to take this opportunity to say that we're not what you think we are. Sure we have some of the best, in-your-face hoppy beers that make you wanna slap your mama but we've got a soft side too.
Take for instance North Coast Brewing Company's Le Merle Saison. Named in honor of their head brewmaster Mark Ruedrich's wife Merle, this rustic farmhouse ale is a 3-time gold medal winner, one of those in the 2012 Brussels Beer Challenge. Fine carbonation brings out the tropical aromas and a touch of spicy yeast character while the dry finish leaves you wondering how a beer this close to 8% ABV can be so drinkable.
From the range of saison that we currently have in stock, it's one of the best.
