This summer we went on vacation again in Dewey Beach, DE. When we arrived we were so happy to see they put in a new brewery right next to our house called the Dewey Beer Co. And of course, they had an excellent saison brew I just couldn’t get enough of.
Since getting back to Dallas I’ve been craving another great saison. This weekend I decided to buy a six pack of Monkey King Saison from New Holland Brewing. Hoping for that same taste I had in Dewey.
To sum up, it was ok. Maybe a 5 out 10. Perhaps because it was in the bottle but it was way over carbonated. I first poured it into a tulip glass but quickly had to change it to a goblet since it was basically a big glass of head. Yes, the glass makes a difference.
I’m hoping I can find this beer on tap some day. I’m willing to bet it will improve both the flavor and carbonation.
