Four Winds Brewing Blod Berg Nordic Saison ReviewFour Winds Brewing Co. – Blodberg Nordic Saison Review

Brewed with Plum and Arctic Thyme and aged in Foeders, Four Winds collaborated with Borg Brugghus, a brewery from Iceland to brew the Blodberg Nordic Saison. From the corked, 750ml bottle this beer is a hazy amber colour and has two fingers of lacing, dense head atop the glass. From the beer comes an aroma of wheaty, saison yeast, a subtle richness from the plum addition and a lemon-spice from the Arctic Thyme. Tasting the beer it is unique with a subtleness to the flavour. The Plum is very light but adds a dried fruit, earthy character to the beer while the Thyme contributes a light and citrus spice. Given the name, ingredients and overall impression of the beer this is surprisingly light and easy drinking. At 5.5% alcohol the Blodberg is flavourful, sessionable and very enjoyable with a unique and subtle twist on the Saison style.

    I still need to pick up a bottle of this one. Sounds very nice. Also both breweries are great.
