Blackberry Farm Brewery Spring Saison

What the brewers say

“Large portions of floor-malted wheat give our refreshing Spring Saison its creamy mouthfeel and hazy straw color. Smooth, slightly tart, and delicately hopped, this beer is also spiced with orange peel, coriander, and grains of paradise.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Mild herbal and fruity aroma, with bits of grass and tangerine. Some spicy, earthy hops notes complemented by lemon, roses, and pears. Medium hops aroma with grapefruit and orange, with slight pepper that starts to shine as it warms.”

Flavor: “Complex flavors with big notes of coriander and pepper, and the spiciness plays well with the orange, tangerine, and lemongrass characteristics. Moderately sweet with a bit of hops bitterness at the finish. Gentle malt in the back, with some mild astringency.”

Overall: “Provides some interesting complexity between spice, fruitiness, and citrus. The earthy spice is really pleasant, and is a good take on a traditional French saison. Carbonation is pretty low, which comes off a bit heavy, giving it a harsher finish.”
