Lake of Bays "Terrible Ted Red Saison"

Lake of Bays Terrible Ted Red Saison

New from the the Lake of Bays Signature Series is Terrible Ted Red Saison, an homage to Red Wings great, Ted Lindsay.

Born in Renfrew, Ontario (west of Ottawa), 17-year-old Robert Blake Theodore Lindsay actually spent a season in Kirkland Lake (north of humanity) in 1942.

#7 played 20 years in the NHL, almost entirely with Detroit, collecting one Art Ross Trophy and four Stanley Cup rings. He also coached in Motown — that didn’t go so well.

It’s only fitting “Terrible Ted” would get his own beer. The Hall of Famer spearheaded the movement to establish the NHLPA, whose corresponding alumni association has been a solid partner for Lake of Bays.

The beverage itself is a bit surprising, in that it smells and tastes like it’s brewed with Rye. Alas, none is listed in the ingredients (is it Munich Malt?). This is a very nice, coppery saison; both crisp and farmy.

At $11.95 / 750ml bottle (6.0% ABV, 25 IBUs), it’s a bit pricey, but would pair nicely with YamChops‘ smoked apple sausage, veggie souvlaki or a really rich, tart cheesecake.
