From Trading Post Brewing in Langley comes their “Dark Tart Farmhouse Ale” a beer that is a blend of half a batch of and dark saison and a half batch of unhopped saison with brett and lacto. The beer poured a deep copper colour with a tan head. The aroma consists of mild tartness and a sour cherry, plum, sweetness and some spice. The flavour is of mild tartness, dark cherries, plum, lots of dark fruits, some spice and some bitterness to finish it off. The alcohol content comes in at 6.5% with an IBU of 20. This is an odd beer in some ways but it is a very refreshing take on a wild saison and I would drink this any time.
Commercial Description: Light tartness and rich cherry, plum, and spice flavours come together to create a complex and rustic take on the farmhouse ale. This ale is made by blending two separate beers together in order to establish a balance between the flavours of tart cherry and spiced plum. The final product is a rich mahogany farmhouse ale that provides warm and fruit for the approaching autumn.
