Saison aux Baies Ameres
Saison aux Baies Ameres I assume translates to Saison with Chokecherries, which are apparently an inedible (for humans) bitter fruit, these particular ones found in Colorado. Apparently though, Left Hand was able to use them as an ingredient in this saison, and sets your expectations on the side of the pounder can. 6.8% alcohol. 10 IBU. Best By 12/11/2017.
Aroma is faint, maybe a little fruit and a little spice. Soft, fruity flavors to start with some lightly tart cherry flavors coming from the fruity addition. Spicy, definitely some yeasty character. The tartness and acidity add some wine-like interest. Very smooth, easy drinker. I liked the fruity addition and the subtle nuances it added to this saison.
