95 The Lost Abbey Carnevale Ale

(Saison/Farmhouse Ale; Port Brewing Company, CA).
This is a “saison-style blonde ale,” brewed using Brettanomyces as well as Amarillo and Simcoe hops. It’s a light-bodied and incredibly refreshing saison, with bright fruit aromas of barely ripe yellow stone fruit, apple and lemon rind that are accented by spicy notes of pepper, Belgian yeast and barnyard. Dry and tart on the palate, this is complex and layered, with the pale-malt core complemented by flavors of juicy pear, peppercorn, hay, citrus zest, floral hops and just a touch of honey. The brisk carbonation keeps the palate lively, finishing crisp and dry. A well-balanced and intricate selection, this is delicious now but should evolve nicely over the next couple of years.
