Saison de Rouge is a dry-hopped Red Saison that was fermented in red wine barrels with 100% Brettanomyces. This Saison will be very different than previous releases as it focuses more on hops, spice, malt and a little funk without the acidity.

Although it finished really dry for this malt bill, it still has a bunch of orchard fruit, starburst candy, orange and grape juice and lime peel on the palate from the dry hops (Mosaic, Citra, Simcoe).

5 months in Chambourcin barrels

Bottle from Keir. Thanks man. Apperance is cloudy red with fizzy white head. Aroma is oak, brett funk and a hint of nail polish. Taste is oak, vinious funk, citrus, and a touch of nail polish. Pretty good, lots of funk as this bottle is well over a year old now, it’s got a bit of off flavour but not enough for it to take away much from the beer. Solid.

DrSilverworm (8155) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 16, 2015
750ml bottle, shared by phaleslu. Hazy red orange color. Dark brick. Thin off-white ring of head. Bits of yeast in the body. Wow, crazy nose. Fantastic smoke... In the flavor, it’s a bit too smokey, though. Big toasty oaky woody flavor. Some dark fruit, mild tannic. Moderate tart taste, some savory, very light sweet. Mostly dry finish. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Don’t really get too much aroma hop from this, especially not those listed. Some nice cream cheese, vanilla on the finish as I go through this. Tasty, interesting musty stuff.

hopscotch (9996) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Bottle... Pours cloudy and brown with a small, wispy, off-white head. Decent retention. The aroma is earthy and dusty with farmhouse yeast-driven spiciness. Full-bodied with a coarse mouthfeel and airy, champagne-like carbonation. The flavor is semi-sweet and tangy with phenolic spiciness and crusty bitterness. Finishes raspy and Sahara-dry. Bottle courtesy of landhoney!

Bottle. Cloudy light brown pour with an off white pour. Mild vinous aromas. Lots of brett with mild vinous notes and lots of caramel malts. A bit strange, but not bad overall. Average body and mouthfeel.

Tap at Perennial. Murky amber pour with a small spotty head. Red wine, grape skins, tannic, with a quite dry feel on the tongue. Good, but not mind blowing.
