Great Divide Nadia Kali Hibiscus Saison is fresh & beautiful

Great Divide Nadia Kali bottle

Great Divide Nadia Kali had made a June debut. The beer kicks off the Denver, Colorado based brewery’s new Tank Farm Series.

Hibiscus gives Great Divide Nadia Kali its pink color. The brewery didn’t stop there, however. The saison also boasts ginger and lemon peel as well.

while ginger root gives it a subtle spice and hint of woodsy maturity, and lemon peel adds a citrus tartness to keep you on your toes. Full of complexity and intrigue, this unfiltered beauty will show you just how deceiving looks can be.

The most striking aspect of this beer is the color. Slightly pink – almost glows in the sun. No doubt you are drinking a full flavored saison, as the yeast tells most of the story. The ginger and lemon bolster a nice, fresh flavor. A great warm weather drinker. Remember, it’s still hot out there.

Great Divide Nadia Kali started shipping in 12 ounce bottles and draft in June, 2016 as a seasonal release.

Style: Saison (w/ Ginger, Lemon Peel, Hibiscus.) 
Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft.
Debut: June, 2016
