Little Fish Brewing Petit Poisson

What the brewers say

“Petit Poisson is a traditional saison, barrel aged 3–6 months and soured before packaging. It won a bronze medal at the 2018 World Beer Cup. Brewed with Ohio Pilsner, wheat, rye, and oats, and hopped with American noble varieties.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Funky Brett is apparent right away, followed by some softer tropical fruit. Effervescent, champagne, lemon. Bright and clean.”

Flavor: “Bright lemon and Lacto presence is balanced by a tannic and earthy presence. Good attenuation and carbonation contribute to a classic Belgian digestibility. Brett funk is present, and it’s not just a Lacto bomb. Complex. Lemonhead candy with restrained sweetness.”

Overall: “There’s enough going on here to keep you interested. The funk and earthy notes balance out the moderately restrained acidity. A classic saison.”
