Wild Rose Brewery Farmhouse White Redux – Saison at 5.8% ABV | 18 IBU

Wild Rose Brewery Farmhouse White Redux Saison at 5.8% ABV | 18 IBU (C$11.49 at Quarry Park Calgary Co-Op, 650 ml, packaged on 1-Sep-2017, acquired 18-Sep-2017, reviewed 18-Oct-2017)

Appearance: hazy pale gold with one finger of fluffy white head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: peaches, apples, oak, light funk. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate tart, moderate-low bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium-light body, moderate carbonation, off-dry mildly tart finish. (3/5)

Stone fruit and pome dominate this, initially bright(ish) and pleasant(ish) but gradually becoming brown or bruised in character. This is presumably a peach and Brett variant of their Farmhouse White, but to be honest, it’s not as good. I’ve had some Saisons that worked really well with peach and Brett, but for some reason this one just isn’t working for me. (12/20)
