Hacienda Beer Co. Insatiable Dreams Strawberry
What the brewers say
"A blend of foeder- and barrel-fermented mixed-culture saison refermented on... strawberries."
What our panel thought
"Distinct strawberry in nose, hints of barnyard and armpit. Fruit character shifts to sour red wine on first sip; aggressive tartness, followed by Brett, wood, earth. Bracing finish, missing brighter fruit to balance wilder fermentation character."
What our editors thought
"Plastic, rubbery nose deflates the pleasure of strawberry. The sip is better, with earthy strawberry and light acidity, but the burden of the rubbery nose is too much to overcome."
