Bellwoods Brewery White Picket Fence – Blended Saison at 5.8% ABV

Bellwoods Brewery White Picket Fence Blended Saison at 5.8% ABV (C$16.99 at Oak & Vine, 500 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 7-Jan-2018, reviewed 10-Jan-2018)

Appearance: clear pale straw with two fingers of rocky white head, excellent retention and heavy lacing. (5/5) Aroma: tropical & stone fruit, horseblankety funk, leather, wood. (9/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter, light funk. (9/10) Palate: medium-light body, moderate-lively carbonation, dry lightly funky finish. (4/5)

That’s one heckuva Saison – a nicely balanced combination of tart fruit and funk, with a nice dry finish. Right up there with the best by this brewery, and that’s saying something. (Yes, I realize it’s only 10 days into the new year and I’ve probably just rated the worst and best of the entire year, back to back. Might as well quit now, I suppose…) (18/20)
