Maxline Brewing | Raspberry Basil Saison

Maxline Brewing | Raspberry Basil Saison
Chea Franz

While springtime in Colorado can be tumultuous with unpredictable weather, a picturesque sunny and clear day in the Centennial state means one thing: patio season. Located in a city that runs deep with craft beer heritage and culture, Fort Collins-based Maxline Brewing has one of the best patios in town due to its heavy rotation of live music and food trucks during the warmer months.

A popular seasonal that comes back year-after-year, just in time for patio weather, is Maxline’s Raspberry Basil Saison. While we can’t enjoy this delicious beer on their patio currently, we can certainly grab a crowler or six-pack to imbibe at home—with shades, of course.

With 252 pounds of raspberry puree added to every 10-bbl batch, Raspberry Basil Saison pours slightly hazy with a ruby pink hue and a light pink foamy head. At 5.7% ABV, this mildly tart beer is light in body and effervescent.

Four cents from every can of Raspberry Basil Saison goes to Drink For Pink, a non-profit that collaborates with local breweries to raise funds to support breast cancer research in the state of Colorado, and help find a cure for cancer. This beer is available in crowlers at Maxline Brewing or in six-packs at participating liquor stores in northern Colorado.
