Port Rexton Brewing Company Tibb’s The Saison – Saison at 6.6% ABV

Port Rexton Brewing Company Tibb’s The Saison – Saison at 6.6% ABV (C$7.83 at Port Rexton Brewing Company, 946 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 28-Dec-2019, reviewed 30-Dec-2019)

Appearance: clear pale amber with a short fluffy off-white head diminishing gradually to nothing, no lacing. (3/5) Aroma: christmas spices, banana, dark fruit, earth. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate spice, mild bitter. (6/10) Palate: medium body, prickly carbonation, warming spicy finish. (3/5)

Not doing it for me: I found it over-spiced, even accounting for the seasonal intent. Not to mention, the ABV is higher than I’d like to see for the style, and the sweetness tends high as well. All in all it’s not the refreshing “could drink a dory load of this” character I look for in this style. (13/20)

6.5/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com
