Funky Buddha BA Undefeated Saison

What the brewers say

“Blended with real Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grape must and finished off with Champagne yeasts to create a beer that drinks like some fine bubbly. An additional stay inside chardonnay barrels leaves this brew with characteristics of lemon peel, green grapes, vanilla, and oak.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Strong oak-barrel character with hints of vanilla, lychee, dill, hay, oxidized wine, and spice. The saison character is evident, with a bready malt sweetness and a little honey.”

Flavor: “Some nice dryness with a barnyard earthiness. Estery spice notes add to the complexity. White grapes give it a bit of sweet but finish dry in the taste. Strong carbonation, and the finish is relatively dry, somewhat tannic, though balanced and interesting.”

Overall: “Great oak character on the nose, some spicy vanilla notes throughout, and a dry tannic finish. This accentuates an interesting background fruitiness. A bit boozy on the finish though.”
