I stopped by Manzanita Brewing Co.’s tasting room in Santee last weekend and was pleasantly surprised to see a Saison on the tap list. I was told only a small amount was brewed as a test batch. Brewed with goji berries, grains of paradise and coriander this is an outstanding Saison. I haven’t the slightest clue what goji berries taste like, so they may be responsible for this beer being a bit sweeter up front than your average Saison, but it finished nice and dry. It was perfect for the 80+ degree day out in Santee.
Just like the small taster seen in the photo, I’ll keep this post short. I’m not sure how much was brewed but let’s hope Manzanita decides to brew a bigger batch and make this a seasonal brew.
