I grabbed a growler of this on one of my recent trips to Vermont. After stopping at the brewery and tasting several beers I opted for this saison over some their bigger beers as it is 64 ounces and I was planning stops at The Alchemist and Hill Farmstead in addition to Rock Art.
I believe this is a brewery only beer as I cannot find much info about it online and it is not even listed on Rock Art’s website. Saisons are quickly becoming one of my favorite summer time styles as a lot of breweries are adding them to their line up.
This one from Rock Art is a fairly simple version of a saison with no funk like you often get from Oxbow and others. The color is typical, pale orange, nice white head. Aroma has a bit of fruit and earthy yeast but nothing too exciting. Taste follows with some mild spice, a very slight bitterness but a clean finish that leaves you wanting more.
Rock Art’s Saison would be a great introduction to the style for beer drinkers looking for something new. If you enjoy this one then you can move on to some of the more daring saison from other breweries.
