Russian River Brewing Co - Santa Rosa Jannemie
What the brewers say
Using our standard Saison Robert as the base beer, we bottle-condition Jannemie with a mild strain of Brett.
What our panel thought
Bright gold with sticky lace. Soft, funky aroma with touches of bright stone fruit, grass, and lemon curd. Clove-and-pepper phenolics bloom in the flavor with low stone fruit and moderate, lingering herbal bitterness. Dry and austere. Yeast-driven, with complementary hopping.
What our editors thought
A crisp floral and pepper edge on the nose offers a telltale Brett signature, and that peppery phenol dominates the flavor with a ranging but oddly pillowy spiciness. Dry and minimal.
