This past week I received the latest collaboration brew from Deschutes Brewery: Zarabanda! (Technically there is no exclamation point in the name but it feels like there should be.)
It is styled as a uniquely-spiced saison, is 6.7% abv, and is apparently available year-round. Here’s the Brewery’s description:
We looked to acclaimed Chef José Andrés to help us create a Spanish take on the farmhouse-style saison. The addition of lemon verbena, pink peppercorn, sumac, and dried lime infuse the Chef’s distinctive flavors into the brew – an ale purposefully crafted to complement all your culinary endeavors. Or to be savored all by itself.
This should be a fun one to drink.
