Draft at the brewery with Paul, Larry, Pete, Frank and MRO. Pours a light amber body with thin white lace. Mouthfeel is medium to thin bodied with notes of spice, wheat, clove and soft fruity malt. Bland but not awful.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
September 5th, 2014 - Black Shirt’s Saison supposedly builds off the principal red ale’s recipe, but veering to a lighter, grainier profile. I test this assumption with a taster of the stuff, which is colored much like its half-dozen or so siblings before me. The aroma on this one, however, is distinctly sweet, featuring cherry, strawberry and mango. The flavor is sweet too, but tempered. There’s a mild dose of strawberry, a lighter palate, and light carbonation. As saisons go, this is much sweeter than normal, but it doesn’t approach a fruit beer by any means - I like it, even if any sugars might blaspheme against the style, this beer performs as a light, quenching sip with some fruity lacing.

Really enjoyed this one. So much, in fact, that I purchased a six pack while I was at their brewery. Wonderful atmosphere, wonderful taco truck outside and all of their reds are delicious, even the dark beers which I typically don’t enjoy. But this one was nice and smooth and flavorful.

12 oz can. Pretty cool label. Pours a hazy red with almost no head whatsoever. Definitely plenty of saison tendencies. Lots of red apple on the nose, some earthiness, maybe a hint of green apple. Prickly carbonation. Flavor is more red apple and a bit of funk. It’s aight.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Opaque brick red with a short tan head. Estery / fruity in the way of peaches and apple, this character made stronger by the red delicious apple maltiness in the aroma. Highly toasted / burnt grain impression in the nose in unpleasant. Belgian yeast character is minimal. Sweet, candy-ish and goopy, medium-full body, acidic from yeast in sediment, which also gives it a doughy dirtiness. Better in terms of flavor balance than the Pale Rye, but the overburnt malt and raw yeastiness limit this one.

From can poured into pint glass. This is why I love Saisons. You don't really know what your going to get. If you like hoppy Amber, this beer is for you
