To Øl Mr. Blue Saison at 7% ABV | 53 IBU (C$9.30 at Sherbrooke Liquor, 330 ml, best before 1-Mar-2021, acquired 17-Dec-2016, reviewed 4-Feb-2018)

Appearance: clear deep ruby with one fat finger of rocky pink head, good retention and heavy, soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: blueberry, red wine, spicy rye, barnyardy funk. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter, mild funk. (8/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry lightly funky finish. (4/5)

One of the drawbacks of the amount of time I’ve spent in “The Heart of the New West” is that when I see “Mr. Blue” I immediately hear that Garth Brooks song… This is interesting, though, almost like a blueberry wine in a lot of ways. There’s also some spicy rye and an earthy, barnyardy funk. Quite good, but it feels like it could’ve been next level somehow – perhaps a little more sweetness, or a bit more dry-hopping. (16/20)
