Beau’s All Natural Brewing Company Farm Table Series Saison – Saison at 4.7% ABV | 27 IBU

Beau’s All Natural Brewing Company Farm Table Series Saison Saison at 4.7% ABV | 27 IBU (C$5.56 at NLC Stavanger, 600 ml, packaged on 23-Feb-2018, acquired 28-Jun-2018, reviewed 29-Jun-2018)

Appearance: hazy straw with one fat finger of loose white head diminishing gradually to a thin skim and ring, moderate soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: stone fruit, doughy wheat malt, white pepper, cloves, grass. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, low bitter, light tart. (8/10) Palate: medium-light body, moderate carbonation, dry moderate bitter lightly tart finish. (4/5)

I waffled a little scoring aroma and flavour here: it’s a bit on the spicy side for both, but not the point of detraction. Ultimately I could have gone just marginally lower (no more than half a point overall), but overall it actually works pretty well. The particular flavours might work more or less well depending on individual preference, but it’s decently dry, refreshing and low ABV, all of which are characteristics I like to see in Saisons. (16/20)
