What the brewers say

“Nadia Kali is an inspired saison with cross-cultural influence. Nadia’s ruby pink glow comes from a generous infusion of hibiscus, while ginger root gives it a subtle spice and a hint of woodsy maturity, and lemon peel adds a citrus tartness to keep you on your toes.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Some nice malt sweetness. Some pepper and tartness. As it warms, a spiciness comes through mixed with the hibiscus.”

Flavor: “The flavor of this beer hits with some earthiness and pepper character. The spice notes carry through the taste. Some sweetness from the hibiscus. A little on the sweet side, but that plays well with the hibiscus. Clean tart finish. In the back sits some light malt sweetness with a little tartness. The carbonation is moderate.”

Overall: “The joy is the balance between hibiscus and saison. The moderate hibiscus and spiciness bite up front have the intensity of an IPA.”
