Funky Buddha Undefeated Saison

What the brewers say

“We use real Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grape musts along with saison and Champagne yeasts to create a beer that drinks, quite literally, like some fine bubbly.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Effervescent and light on the nose. White grape and wine like. Slightly earthy with pepper, guava, and spice.”

Flavor: “Pepper, honey, spicy phenols, autolyzed yeast, aggressive alcohol, medium bitterness, and extreme effervescence that causes tingling on the inside of the cheeks. Finishes absolutely bone dry. Throughout there’s a little lemon, some earthy hay-like funk, and some dry white grape wine flavors.”

Overall: “Massive rocky head means you have to be a little patient to get much character out of the beer—they’re going for the champagne thing here—but there is really nice complexity after that subsides a bit. The grape complements the saison very well.”
