Sagittarius B2N is a collaboration brew between Portland Oregon Brewery Ecliptic Brewing and Milton Delaware Brewery Dogfish Head. Labeled a Saison Ale with Grapefruit, Lemon and Hibiscus, this brew is very tasty and a perfect choice now that the weather is getting warmer.
This collaboration brew came about when Dogfish head founder, Sam Calagione, sold John Harris of Ecliptic the brewhouse that they use today. In terms of where the name for the brew came from, it is probably best to let the Brewers themselves explain:
“Deep in the center of our Milky Way galaxy, some 26,000 light years away, lies a massive ethanol cloud designated Sagittarius B2N. While it is often imagined that alcohol is a creation of our earthly fermentation pursuits, Sagittarius B2N and other interstellar clouds like it prove that alcohol has existed long before we humans. So raise a glass to the cosmic brewery that is our universe.”
Appearance: A very pretty golden color that has a creamy small head, leaves a small amount of lacing as you drink it
Aroma: The Sagittarius has a mild hoppy aroma with hints of grapefruit, no super strong aromas
Taste: A true Saison, light and hoppy, just enough bitterness to know that hops are there but also wonderfully combined with grapefruit, lemon and hibiscus. Crisp and clean finish, a great beer to crack open now that the weather is getting warmer
Mouthfeel: Lightly to moderately carbonated. Suits it well, gives it a crisp and clean taste, not too bitter and has a nice refreshing aftertaste
Overall: A really solid Saison collaboration by Ecliptic and Dogfish Head. Solid amount of flavor without being too powerful, just the right amount of bitterness with a nice floral taste to complement it. Great beer to drink during the summer months at the beach and share with friends. Something here for everyone! Cheers!
