Powell Beer Saison Cassis

I love cassis and I also love a nice Saison, so this bottle from Powell Beer was already looking like a winner even before I cracked the bottle. An aroma of deep black currant leads, followed by a peppery note from the Saison yeast. I really enjoyed the fact that while the cassis flavour is definitely present, the spicy Saison character is also given room to express itself and the beer remains quite dry despite the fruit addition. I’ve also had their Mango Saison, which was great but doesn’t quite hit the striking balance between fruit and yeast complexity that is present in the Cassis Saison

    I have yet to try these saisons. Sounds like it was a tasty one for sure though.
