Yellowhead Brewery x Tool Shed Brewing Rococo Rose Saison – Saison at 6.8% ABV

Yellowhead Brewery x Tool Shed Brewing Rococo Rose Saison – Saison at 6.8% ABV (C$3.60 at Collective, 473 ml, packaged on 30-Oct-2019, acquired 24-Jan-2020, reviewed 3-Feb-2020)

Appearance: hazy pale gold with one finger of fine white head, good retention and moderate stringy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: grape must, spices, field berries, light funk. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate tart, light bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate-lively carbonation, off-dry medium tart finish. (3/5)

The can says it’s a “Rose” Saison, but I assume that since it’s made with shiraz and zinfandel grape musts, they mean it’s a “Rosé”. Not that it looks much like that – there’s no pink or red in its colour at all – but flavour-wise, sure, white and red wine characters are there. A bit heavy for a Saison, but decent enough overall. (14/20)
