Green Man Thriller, A Blood Orange Saison Coming This October
(Asheville, NC) – Just beet it! Green Man Brewery has a special limited release brewing in preparation for the creepiest time of the year. Thriller is a Blood Orange Saison, with the addition of beets allowing for a grisly sanguine hue.
This traditional rustic farmhouse ale is brewed with generous additions of Amarillo hops which have a floral and grapefruit aroma, complementing the zesty blood orange. The spicy and dry notes of the Saison yeast linger among flavors of citrus and earth creating a distinctive palate. At 7.7% this beer is sturdy yet very easy to drink. Beware, it is so good you may want to howl at the moon!
Look out for Thriller in 750 mL bottles come mid-October in select retailers throughout North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Georgia.
