Parallel 49 / Last Best Brewing and Distilling It Came From the Mash Tun! – Saison at 5.1% ABV

Parallel 49 / Last Best Brewing and Distilling It Came From the Mash Tun! Saison at 5.1% ABV (C$3.50 at Sobeys Liquor Okotoks, 473 ml, packaged on 18-Jul-2018, acquired 3-Sep-2018, reviewed 5-Sep-2018)

Appearance: hazy pale straw with one finger of creamy white head, good retention and moderate soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: pale crackery malt, floral, lemon zest, coriander, white pepper. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-low bitter, light peppery spice. (7/10) Palate: medium-light body, prickly carbonation, dry mildly spicy finish. (4/5)

Not very “wild”, but pretty drinkable and reasonably refreshing. A fairly authentic interpretation of the style, in my opinion. Part of the “Craft Cousins” 4-pack of Parallel 49 collaborations with Alberta breweries. (15/20)

7.5/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com
