Rhubarb Saison
Brewed with renowned writer, Melissa Cole, author of bestseller "Let Me Tell You About Beer". We have used world famous Yorkshire rhubarb to add a hint of sourness. There is earthy spice from the Saison yeast, and fresh vanilla to bring out the sweet notes from a blend of Noble Central European hops. A rich golden colour, this naturally hazy Saison is truly a world beer, refreshing on the palate, with a long, satisfying bittersweet finish. Due to popular demand, Siberia will now join our permanent list in bottle and keg. Siberia is now exported and available in the US

Clean darkish gold in colour, white head is thin, nose is of spice/sweet apple crumble quite pleasant! Palate is medium bodied with spicy notes, quite tart, especially on the longish finish. Good beer, although I couldn’t pick out any specific rhubarb characters other than the tartness. Liked it!

nearbeer (4877) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 1, 2016
500 ml. bottle bb 03 2015. Mostly clear orange-amber body has some mild bubbly activity that supports a lasting film of cream. Nose is lightly tart fruit and caramel apple. Flavor is the same with a finish of pecan, pithy wood and a hint of smoke. Medium body has smooth medium carbonation and a very drinkable balance. Interestingly different and tasty.

Beer5000 (5901) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 14, 2016
330 ml bottle. Almost clear golden body with a moderate sized white head. Mild fruity aroma with spicy yeast, quite typical for a Belgium Saison with some rhubarb in addition. Flavor is sweet, mild malt, some fruitiness in general, hint of rhubarb. Quite smooth and easy drinkable, not very complex and not particular sour.

bubbleflubber (2159) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - SEP 26, 2015
Pours into the glass a hazy straw-golden into the glass with a copious ice cream head, lots of cascading carbonation, and leaves thick lacing. The nose has some sourness and barnyard accents. Definite rhubarb sourness upfront, followed by some hay and wet grains, finishing sour and light grainy bitters. The mouthfeel is soft, despite the carbonation visibly at work. The body is thin and weak, lacking substantial complexity. This doesn’t have the traditional top-tier characteristics of a quality saison; however, the rhubarb is nicely portrayed in the flavor profile. Probably best served as a decent lawnmower brew if one is looking for a fruity, semi-sour, simple quencher for the hot sun.
