Birds Fly South Ale Project Saison is Dead: Mosaic
What the brewers say
Open-fermented house saison using our own Brett blend and single-hopped with Mosaic.
What our panel thought
Musty lemon-lime nose, peppery and herbal, with soft, nutty wet grain and a touch of grassy hops. Moderately earthy-bitter with a faint tangy edge; wheaty malt, grassy hops, light peppery notes, and a touch of barnyard funk. Dry finish. Muddled. Earthy and dour.
What our editors thought
Teasing a lime-citrus note that pulls back before falling over the edge, the nose retreats into familiar farmhouse lore—grass, hay, rose. The sip meanders through similar territory, dangling sweet promises that (thankfully) remain unfulfilled.
