Blackberry Farm Brewery Classic Saison

What the brewers say

“The aroma is dominated by fruity esters reminiscent of citrus fruits and a moderate earthy and floral hops aroma. It is medium-bodied and refreshing.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Moderate white pepper note with a light fruit and lemon ester. Light spicy notes of lemongrass and white pepper. Low herbal earth hops. A very clean-smelling beer.”

Flavor: “Big lemon and light grape notes up front with plenty of carbonation. Moderate grapefruit with a pithiness creates a dryness at the end of the sip. Tangerine carries through with light peppery phenols and white bread. Low malt sweetness up front gives way to a mix of moderate acidity and bitterness. Earthy hops presence with a slight floral and basil flavor. Clean and well-balanced. Hops bitterness lingers with a slight tartness in the back.”

Overall: “Moderate carbonation covers up a lot of the fruitiness up front, but once it dissipates there is more sweetness and a moderate spicy note. The light mix of esters, phenols, and bready malt give a nice complexity, while the dry tart finish and high carbonation make it very refreshing.”
