Brew Review-Heavy Seas Red Sky at Night
Heavy Seas’ Red Sky at Night is a delicious saison. A nice part about the summer is that the saisons come out to play. They’re everywhere. Most breweries will pump out a saison during the summer months, and Heavy Seas provides us with one of the better ones.
The Red Sky at Night pours a bright golden color, with a slight cloudiness. Immediately, that clove, yeasty Belgian scent makes its presence known.
The flavor is perfect. It’s citrusy, and slightly bitter, with a mild maltiness that holds everything together. It finishes crisp and clean, making it very refreshing.
It is a bit stronger than the average beer, at 7.5% abv, though it’s so delicious you may find yourself ripping through a six pack without realizing it.
Time’s winding down for it this year, so if you can find it grab it. Otherwise, be on the lookout next summer.
