Waypost Brewing Co. Saison
What the brewers say
The rustic grain bill featuring spelt and wheat gives the unique saison yeast the chance to show what it can do.
What our panel thought
Fresh banana-bread aroma, medium-sweet, with significant spice phenolics and esters of cherry and pear. Nice bready malt flavor lingers, but seems watery and sweet; notes of grapefruit rind and black pepper. Dry finish with lingering woody notes. Enjoyable. Characterful.
What our editors thought
Honeydew, white pepper, and green tea on the nose, with a touch of overripe tropical fruit. The sip is a bit undercarbonated and limp, with soft pepper notes outcompeting other fermentation flavors. Lacks the bold edge that’s so loved in the style.
