DuClaw X10 Saison


DuClaw X10DuClaw opened its first brewery in 1996 in Bel Air, Maryland. Since the late 90’s DuClaw has become a household name, with an extensive and elaborate portfolio of creative beers. One of their most recent releases is X10, a Saison brewed with cantaloupe.

The beer pours a clear bright straw yellow color. The thin white head shows some retention. Once the head dissipate a minimal amount of lacing remains. A steady stream of tiny bubbles in the glass display the robust carbonation.

Aromas of bright coriander and rich cloves are front and center. Sweet cantaloupe and a musky funk are also noteworthy. A hint of honeysuckle is met by a mild and fresh citrus note.

On the palate, sweet cantaloupe notes take the lead. The spicy clove and bright coriander from the bouquet are right on the heels of the cantaloupe. A funky yeasty note cuts both the spice and sweet melon, and a citrus bite adds complexity.

Another unique and refreshing brew from DuClaw. Try pairing this one with Jarlsberg, blackened shrimp or blueberry cobbler. 3 out of 5 Pints
