Blackberry Farm Brewery Classic Saison
Blackberry Farm Brewery Classic Saison comes in at 6% ABV. Bottle sent for review.
This cork was ready to come out, it really did need the cage! I’m glad I noticed it coming up out of the bottle before it shot a hole into the ceiling. Needless to say this poured with a big active white head on top of slightly orange golden beer, just a hint of cloudy haze. On the nose is some classic barnyard funk and hay along some lovely light lemon and pepper. The first thing that hits my palate is the carbonation, this is a bright and bubbly beer that plays on the tongue well. The taste is pleasant but not as intense as the aroma, extremely well balanced overall. I’m enjoying a near perfect combination of mildly funky yeast, peppery spice, tart-ish lemon peel and rind, and just a hint of grain. This is incredibly drinkable as well with a fantastic dry finish.
Classic Saison. They couldn’t have picked a better name for this one.
