The newest Black Fox beer is a light-bodied but savory saison. This beer is full of wheat, maize, and red willow bark, and dry-hopped with sage.-----Beer Specifications Style: Saison Color: 15.7 Body: Light Malts: Pilsen, Flaked Maize, Flaked wheat, Red wheat, Biscuit, C-150, Golden naked oats, Choc. malt Hops: Horizon, Crystal Alcohol: 6.9% ABV IBUs: (est.): 23.4

Got to try this due to the generosity of a couple of very nice Paskies: thanks to Paskie, Dan for picking up a growler of this one up, and for Paskie, Ryan for dropping by during the epic hearth tiling project to share a taste. Very interesting beer this. Looks very pretty in the glass, warm walnut with a nice cap of fine off-white. The aroma is not what one would call immediately endearing. Or even...one that grows on you after a bit. Sort of a meaty sage aroma that makes me think of stuffing the cavity of a bird or rubbing a pork roast. The fresh floral quality of a freshly picked sage leaf doesn’t seem to have survived. And what is left is the more aggressive spice cabinet note. Flavor is similarly heavy on the sage. There is a bit of toasted caramel. Nice delicate palate, bright and clean, dry finishing. An interesting idea, but one that could have used a much more restrained hand in implementation.

Tap at Bristol. Murky brown pour with light brown head. A strong sage aroma with an earthy undercurrent that I can only assume is the willow bark. The body is very well balanced. Saison fullness with the sage held in check by the wonderful wood character.
