Clipper City Heavy Seas Red Sky at Night
I picked up a four-pack sample of Clipper City's Heavy Seas brand. The Heavy Seas brand consists of Clipper City's higher alcohol content beer. My first beer out of the sampler pack was the Red Sky at Night, which is a saison. The beer is pale yellow in color with a light head. It has a sweet and fruity aroma. The taste is slightly peppery with lemon accents. The alcohol content is 7.5% ABV. I thought that the Red Sky at Night is an excellent saison with great fruit hints and spicy finish. After trying the whole pack (reviews yet to come), this was my favorite one in the pack.
