Blindman Brewing Oaked Brett Saison – Saison at 6.6% ABV | 30 IBU

Blindman Brewing Oaked Brett Saison – Saison at 6.6% ABV | 30 IBU (C$10.75 at Collective, 500 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 16-Oct-2020, reviewed 27-Oct-2020)

Appearance: hazy straw with one fat finger of rocky white head diminishing rapidly to a thin cap, spotty lacing. (3/5) Aroma: citrus, green apple, vinous grape, mild funk, light oak. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter, light funky tart. (8/10) Palate: medium-light body, lively carbonation, off-dry moderate bitter lightly funky finish. (4/5)

A nicely behaved Saison, if slightly high in ABV for the style. I have to say, though, that neither of the two elements named on the label really feature all that strongly in the flavour profile. Yes, there are both barnyardy funk and toasted oak hints in the aroma, but they’re not much more than that. This is actually dominated by fruit including lemony citrus and vinous grape, but that’s not necessarily a negative. (15/20)

7.5/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com
