YellowBelly Brewery Flatrock Freshie Ryan’s Farm Black Currant Saison – Saison at 5.6% ABV | 20 IBU

YellowBelly Brewery Flatrock Freshie Ryan’s Farm Black Currant Saison Saison at 5.6% ABV | 20 IBU (C$13.51 at YellowBelly Brewery, 1 l, best before 15-Dec-2016, acquired 8-Oct-2016, reviewed 25-Nov-2016)

Appearance: clear pinkish deep amber with a thin, sort-lived fizzy off-white head, poor retention and no lacing. (3/5) Aroma: muted, sweet and tart red berry, light rubber/band-aid. (5/10) Taste: moderate sweet, mild tart, light bitter. (5/10) Light body, moderate-low carbonation, off-dry lightly tart finish. (3/5)

An undefined berry sweetness and tart leads the way over a slight burned rubber or band-aid aroma, with no Saison character to speak of whatsoever. Warming didn’t improve the bouquet or flavour. Definitely a disappointment from YB. (11/20)

5.5/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com
