DRAFT REVIEW: Whole Hog Raspberry Saison
This fruit saison neatly balances its smooth raspberry scents with rustic hay and black pepper, creating a bouquet that’s both sweet and prickly on the nose. Raspberry Saison repeats that balancing act by carefully steadying its sweet fruit flavor with classic earthy saison notes. Tart wheat nips the sides of the tongue while dried hay and pepper engage the rest. All the while, a sweet layer of raspberry balances the swallow before a drying finish ensues. Despite its high ABV, this quaffable saison is a palatable refresher.
