Blackberry Farm Brewery Summer Saison
Blackberry Farm Brewery Summer Saison is brewed with Australian Summer and Citra hops, 6.06% ABV. Since the temperatures here in Savannah are already in the high 90’s with endless humidity, it is time for a Summer Saison! Bottle provided for review.
This Farmhouse Ale pours with a beautiful clear orange color, and a big active off white head. (As expected each subsequent pour from the 750 ml. bottle is more and more cloudy) The aroma is strong with the citra hops with lots of sweet fruity citrus aromas, kind of like orange marmalade. Saison yeast with the mildest of funk mixes with some more generic tropical fruits on the nose as well. Although the taste does have a good bit of orange citrus, this beer is all Saison. The yeast brings the majority of the taste, lots of fruity Belgian tones and a nice dry finish that has a bit of a white wine character. The taste also brings waves of additional flavors with notes of melon, pear, apple, grass and hay, hints of pepper, and a touch of sweet honey.
Once again another delicious beer from Blackberry Farm. At this point I’d be happy picking up a few of their seasonal Saisons every year, but I hope there will be even more amazing beers headed our way to enjoy!
