Saison Cinsaut – Woodland Empire Ale Craft

From Woodland Empire Ale Craft out of Boise Idaho comes their “Saison Cinsaut” a sasion aged in Split Rail Cinsaut Wine barrels with local strawberries.  The beer pours a cloudy amber colour with a white head.  The aroma consists of strawberry, spices and some yeast notes and an overall sweetness.  The flavour is of malts, wine, strawberry, yeast, woody and a very mild tartness.  The alcohol content comes in at 6%.  Not being a wine fan I am always a little hesitant with wine barrel beers.  Luckily for me this beer really benefits from the wine barrels and tastes really good.
