A Note on This Beer
Surrounded by farms in the Belgian-influenced Quebec beer scene, Brasserie Dunham serves up rustic and authentic Saisons that rank among the world’s best. With three of the top 50 Saisons in the world on Ratebeer, Brasserie Dunham is a must-visit stop for its artful delivery of rough-cut grain flavor.
Brewed with additions of rye, wheat, oat, honey and spices, Dunham’s Propolis Saison has the depth of a Farmhouse Ale from the Belgian countryside. Its traditional multi-grain malt bill contributes creamy, zesty nuance to fruity aspects of Belgian yeast. Rather than making it sweet, the honey adds a delicate floral flavor and leaves it with a drying, refreshing finish.
Fill your glass with effervescent gold, taking in the aroma of dusty stone fruit, milled grains, and fresh cracked pepper. Guided by Saison yeast, rye malt amplifies the suggestion of allspice, as wheat and oats layer in flavors of sweet hay, apricots, and lemon. Inclusions of orange peel and house blend of spice fold in with subtlety. Giving Propolis its sophisticated dry finish, honey tints the palate with a soft clover-flower character, followed by an herbal-hop linger.
When so many character-filled grains come together in one nuanced and refreshing beer, you have a paragon of the Farmhouse world. Add a touch of unique honey-kissed flavor, and you have the even greater treasure that is Propolis.
