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

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.

Bottle shared by Fux, thanks! Pours a cloudy red with a medium white head that leaves some lacing. Nose is of dill, pepper and red wine. Taste is tart an fruity, offers some spicy and herbal notes. Body is light to medium and carbonation moderately high. Overall this wasn’t a hit but at least I didn’t despise it as much as Tommy.
