No. 19: Heavy Seas Red Sky at Night( Handout / March 27, 2014 )
$9.29/6-pack/7.5 percent ABV
Heavy Seas describes this saison as a "rustic farmhouse ale." We'd describe it as sugary, which generally we don't enjoy. This is an exception, the blend of allspice, apricot, clove and banana come make for a pleasing honey taste that doesn't make your lips pucker in defiance. Sometimes, it's good to mix it up.
Drink this: When an Indian summer blows your way.
