an oak aged black saison with blueberry and lemon, one of my favorite beers from our visit here and up there with the best i have had from cellar west to date. its a gorgeous brew, unique and funky, with the right amount of fruit, a cool combination of things happening in this, i loved it! its near black from the tap with a short tan head, and has a nice luster to it. the aroma is piquant and jammy from the blueberry skins and the lemon, zesty and alive to me, bright for a dark beer, and with the fruit well integrated into the dark roasty malt base that has very little sweeter crystal malt for balance, but its not missed at all. i think the fruit fills in well for a heavier grain base, this isnt overly bitter in the finish but it does have a charred sort of ashen property to it that i really like. the blueberry is natural and dense, the lemon is acidic and calls up some bretty funk in here, which tastes less mature than it does in some of their other beers but is really awesome. some tannic oak here, mature in that sense, some red wine fruitiness too, but behind the berry and the lemon. this is oddly summery for its color, and remains delicate despite its boldness, owing to a lighter body, high carbonation, and an absurdly dry finish. awesome beer, this is really unique and clever and well executed, and for me cellar wests stock continues to rise. i loved this one!
