Rock Art Brewery – Small Batch – Black Currant Saison

This one’s a bit different. Ok, it’s a lot different, actually. Rock Art has created a beer the color of beets, but with the flavor of currants. It looks a bit like a traditional cherry soda, with it’s thick head and incredible color. This one doesn’t give off much aroma, but the flavor is all there. There is absolutely no malt or hop profile with this brew, it’s entirely fruit. I think I have to call this style of beer an acquired taste. It’s not bad, in fact I quite like the surprise change; but if you are expecting a beer with traditional hops and malt, you’ll be disappointed. Overall this is an excellent beer from a wonderful brewery, and if you’re in the mood for something completely off the wall and different, this is a great place to look.
