Barrel-aged saison with boysenberry

The beer inside this bottle is our homage to the brewers who came before us; a tribute to those who paved the road on which we walk and discreetly left a breadcrumb trail for us to follow. It is for the beer geeks, the tickers and raters, and the newbies who opened their minds to try something new and unfamiliar. It is something that comes from our heart, an offering of appreciation for the supporting us and allowing us to play in the game. The beer in this bottle wouldn't exist with out you.

With appreciation,

SARA

750ml bottle, served in a teku glass. Pours a clear, darker reddish-purple body, one finger thick white head, good retention, bits of lacing. Smell is heavy on the boysenberry, with a nice earthy fruitiness present as well as a bit of oak, touch of red wine and tannins, bit of fruity grape and lactic acid. Flavour is a nice fruity boysenberry, with a bit of earthy astringency, nice oak, tannic with a bit of vanillin on the backend, moderate acetic tartness hanging around throughout the palate. Light lemon as well. Mouthfeel is lighter medium bodied, good carbonation, dry boysenberry tartness with a fair bit of red wine tannins lingering on the finish. Nice complexity, with an interesting earthy astringency that takes a few sips to get used to.

What a fantastic beer. Beautiful crimson color in the glass, smells of wine, oak, and berries. Just the right balance of the vinous character with the ripe tart berries and oak. Nice dry finish. This is seriously top notch stuff here.

Oaky, funky, red wine, fruity boysenberries, hops to even it out. Taste is full of super fresh whole tart boysenberries, red wine barrel, funky oak.

SARA strikes again. So much fruit, perfect amount of tart. SARA continues to dominate this style in my opinion. This beer is so balanced, at the same time it has a TON of flavor.
