What the brewers say

“A collaboration brewed with Casey Brewing and Blending, Jammy is a saison that was fermented and aged with mixed cultures from both Missouri and Colorado in French oak wine barrels for eight months on Missouri blackberries before being naturally bottle conditioned.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Big juicy ripe blackberry notes with a touch of lactic sourness in the background. Vinous, like red wine. Dark fruit, dried cherry, and blueberry. Peppery and almost earthy.”

Flavor: “Well-balanced fruit and sourness without being overwhelming. The blackberries are super juicy and ripe. Lots of the berry-skin flavor and feel. A touch of acetic in the finish. Make my teeth squeaky. Very wine-like—dry and tannic.”

Overall: “Nice blackberry flavors with just a touch of sweetenss but with a tart dry finish. The fruit and sourness play off of each other well, and the tannins make you want another sip. This beer is very interesting and enjoyable; the wine-like character is really nice.”
