While at Ashley’s Westland, we are going to sample Stowaway Saison Ale from Right Brain Brewery. If you read my earlier beer blog posts, you know the history of this craft brewery. If you have not, please, read my beer blog posts about their beers to get to know this Michigan craft brewery. Let us get into this beer.
This Saison Ale has a clear golden color with a nice constant white head. The head of the beer has small bubbles. The aroma has Belgian spices with a citrus notes like lemon. The taste has a light carbonation Belgian spice with citrus notes. The finish is a refreshing slight hop aftertaste. It is pretty drinkable beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.rightbrainbrewery.com):
Style: Reclaimed Saison
A traditional Saison with a hazy golden color, fruit-forward aroma, crisp complex flavor, and mildly acidic finish. #RBB brewers cultivated the reclaimed yeast used for this beer over a span of 7-months.

In closing, I will be perfectly honest with you. I did not like this beer the first time I tried it. I had to try this beer one more time just because I love this brewery and I am a huge fan of them. I do not know if it was what I was eating or the beer I had before trying this beer. The second time that I have had this beer is a positive thought towards this beer. I really enjoyed this beer. I love the refreshing taste profile that this beer provides to the craft beer drinker. I love the hops used in this beer. I will be looking for this beer again on my next beer run or at my neighborhood bar. I highly recommend this beer if you are a light beer drinker or love your Saison Ales. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
