Swans Brewery - Master Blaster Brett Saison Review Swans Brewery – Master Blaster North American Brett Saison(ishhh) Review

The Master Blaster is a Brett Saison from Swans Brewery. Well They actually say it is a North American Brett Saison then add an “ishhh” to help define an uncategorizable beer. Originally brewed for Victoria Beer week the success of this beer’s debut spurred on a limited release run. From the Bomber bottle this beer pours a colour of cloudy orange and is topped with a single finger of lightly lacing, dense head. The aroma is thick with tropical fruit tones and brett yeast funk. The earthy/straw/barnyard tones from the yeast are built upon with the big fruit tones of the hops. Notes of grapefruit, mango and citrus take over the aroma in a delicious smelling package. Tasting the beer the fruit tones come in up front and lead into the funky Brett yeast tones. The master blaster has big fruit-hop tones but remains relatively light and sessionable. This beer has brett balance of flavour and is an excellent representation of Brett Flavour without going too far.

Alcohol – 5.5%
Size – 650ml bottle

    Wish I had read this review earlier as it not only sounds great but I love the label art also.
