2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled at the GCBF. One-off, and no they’re not coming out with a black saison in bottles soon. Pumpkin ale is in the works though.
Brown & hazy with a bit of a milk chocolate hue. No head. Nose is blackberry, pepper, tannins. Taste is as vinous as much as pepper and blackberry. Finish is a mild sweetness.
