Black Betty Blackberry Saison – Vancouver Island Brewery

O’hare’s Beer Club October 2013 Box

Limited Edition

From Victoria BC’s Vancouver Island Brewery comes their new limited release “Black Betty Blackberry Saison”.  The saison pours a dark golden amber colour with an off white head.  The aroma consists of blackberry, wheat, spices and yeast.  The flavour is of sweet blackberries, wheat, yeast, spices and biscuit malts.  The alcohol content comes in at 6.3%.  This is a great marrying of saison and berries and was very refreshing!

Commercial Description:  Whoa, Black Berry (bam-a-lam)… Fresh local blackberries and fresh local beer go together like Hot Rods and Rock & Roll.  We brewed this blackberry Saison and the damn thing went wild.  Dry, crisp, and complex, this beer will make you sing!

Food Pairing according to O’hare’s Beer Club notes are as follows:Grilled red meat, blackened chicken
