Olde Hickory Saison Gee
I picked up a bottle of Olde Hickory Saison Gee this summer in Asheville and have now just got around to trying it, so this is aged about 7 months. Smells of sweet tropical fruits, mostly guava and passion fruit. I’m getting the same sweet fruity flavors in the taste, and the yeast is pretty strong and funky. The carbonation is spot on but the mouth-feel is a bit heavy for a Saison. This beer comes in at 9% ABV and I have to say just a bit of that alcohol is coming out on the finish. This might have been better fresher but it grew on me as it warmed.
