670. Grassroots Brewing Brother Soigné
Not sure if you have noticed but Hill Farmstead has really started to increase the amount of bottled saisons available. I assume the new foudres have a lot to do with this. With the added capacity the bottle limits have increased from a six or less to multiple cases for many of the saisons.
As I write this Brother Soigne is the #1 saison on Ratebeer.com and for good reason. This beer pours a beautiful golden color with a single finger white head. Aroma has some lime, citrus and a light funk. Taste is incredible with a crisp tart fruit including lime, orange and green apple. I didn’t get any hibiscuus but with everything else that is going on I didn’t miss it.
Only a small amount of funk which makes this beer approachable for almost any beer drinker. Another amazing beer from Shaun Hill.
