Libertine Brewing Company Saison

What the brewers say

“Our saison is crisp and funky, allowing the Brettanomyces to dry it out. Dry-hopped with Lemon Drop and Boadicia, this is the perfect San Luis Obispo hot summer beer.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Lemon zest and lemon juice dominate, with a very subtle hint of leather. A blend of fruity pineapple, earthy Brett funk, and earthy and herbal tea-like hops. A light apricot note as the head starts to break.”

Flavor: “Lemon flavors abound, with hints of lemon zest and lemon juice. When combined with tartness, it comes across as lemon drop or Warheads candies. Tartness is somewhat sharp and a bit lingering in the finish. Somewhat balanced (not too dry or too sweet), but tartness helps give a perception of dryness in the finish. Moderate sour lemon note up front with the sourness that grows throughout the sip to the end.”

Overall: “Interesting take on the style, with a ton of lemon character from the Brett and/or hops. Great showcase of pineapple fruity and earthy Brett funk. An interesting profile with moderate grapefruit and raspberry notes. Tart but not overly sour and still very drinkable.”
