In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Funky Buddha BA Undefeated Saison

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.”
