Best Quote During Tasting
Yes sir, "beer master," sir.
|Aroma - The first thing I get is a white pepper from the yeast. There's a spicy character which could be yeast or hops but due to the style, I'm saying yeast. The hops I do get are floral and beyond all that, there's a bit of citrus (lemon?) that sneaks in at the end.|
|Appearance - The beer is a crystal clear light gold with a thin, white head made up of large, loose bubbles that floats on top of the beer forever.|
|Flavor - The same spicy and peppery notes in the aroma jump out in the flavor as well. The new player here is some nice earthiness that balances out the spice. The malts are definitely white bread and only slightly sweet. The finish is dry to semi-dry.|
|Mouthfeel - The carbonation is medium and the body is light-medium for a watery feel on the tongue.|
|Overall Impression - We've reviewed some great beers and we've reviewed some good beers from Bur Oak and this one doesn't disappoint. It's a good example of a saison and while it won't blow away beer snobs, it's a great beer to introduce people to the style. It's safe to say that I'll be willing to try anything Bur Oak makes at least once and can't way to see how they evolve.|
