Urban Family Brewing’s Magnolia Saison

A magnolia double feature. First, magnolia oolong tea is steeped in Saison Magnolia, a dry, funky, yeast-driven beer from innovative craft brewery Urban Family (in the—you guessed it—Magnolia neighborhood of Seattle). Then we fuse the steeped beer concoction with tart raspberries to sire a fermented, bright, floral marmalade. We liked this versatile beer so much that we also whisk a bit unadulterated into sweet cream before churning, with a hint of cloves to accentuate the spiciness of the beer. Sometimes, with great hazy risk comes great reward.
