Four Winds Wildflower Saison Review

Four Winds Brewing Co. – Wildflower Saison Review

Four Winds is upping their game in a hurry with their first bottle release. Kicking off the bottle program Four Winds has produced a bottle conditioned, Wildflower Saison in a corked, 750ml bottle. This champagne topped bottle opens with a pop and pours into the glass a light, golden-amber colour. Three fingers of loose head tops the beer and leaves a modest amount of lacing on the glass. The smell is light with floral tones and a honey like sweetness along side a mild spice. The flavour is very unique and quite smooth. The floral tones come out quite strong with a reasonably high level of carbonation. There is a bit of a sweetness to the beer but the wildflower and spice tones balance this quite well and mellowing the sugars occurring in the flavour. The Spice notes seem to stem from a chamomile base which does give the flavour a tea-like classification. This beer is hard to compare to any other beer as it is very unique. There are a few similarities between this and the Deep Cove Green Tea Saison but really the similarities are mostly superficial. My advice, pick up a bottle and try it for yourself. Four winds has brewed up a delicious and unique Saison that can only be fully understood after tasting it.
