Last Best Brewing and Distilling #500 Brett Saison – Saison at 6.2% ABV | 30 BU

Last Best Brewing and Distilling #500 Brett Saison Saison at 6.2% ABV | 30 BU (C$9.50 at The Brewer’s Apprentice, 946 ml, packaged on 22-Oct-2017, acquired 22-Oct-2017, reviewed 22-Oct-2017)

Appearance: dirty opaque pale amber with one finger of white fluffy head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, moderate lacing. (3/5) Aroma: coriander, peppercorn, wheat, white grapes. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter, mild funk. (6/10) Palate: medium body, moderate-high carbonation, funky finish. (3/5)

Butt ugly, but not bad overall. Not much more to say than that: I love Brett, and given the chance, I’d’ve let this age for a while to let the Brett really dig in and establish, but crowlers can’t age, so: ugly, lightly Brett-y, lightly funky. The supposed “truckload” of ANZAC hops don’t really dominate, although I do get a little white grape towards the end. (And I’m a serious fan of ANZAC hops, so you can colour me more than a little disappointed there.) (12/20)
