21st Amendment Sneak Attack

CIMG7139

Yay, Saison in a can! This new beer features Pale and Crystal malt with Belgian Light Candy Sugar, Magnum hops and Cardamom pods added in secondary.

Stats:
Saison. 6.2% ABV. 38 IBUs. California. January-March Availability.

Dirty yellow color. Head really doesn’t last long on this beer.

Lots of cardamon mixed with that Belgian Saison funk character.

Mouthfeel is light-medium body with high carbonation. Very easy drinking beer.

Saison-like, lots of Belgian yeast. Lots of spices, with the cardamon really coming through, but not as over-powering as the nose suggests. Hint of vanilla and a pretty legit bitterness on the finish.

All-in-all, not a spectacular beer for me. I love Saisons, but the heavy spice and hop kind of ruins it for me. Not saying that it’s all bad, just not what I’m looking for in a Saison. 85 points.
