Noble Oaf Rye Saison

Noble Oaf Rye Saison comes from Sarnia, Ontario, where its brewed by Refined Fool Brewing Co., makers of one of my fave Ontario strong ales, Short Pier, Long Walk Doubple IPA. I had a mighty 750mL bottle of the 7.3% alcohol brew at my pals' place. The beer proved to be a darkish copper hued ale, cloudy, and topped with a fluffy white head. It had a yeasty, faintly floral aroma. The flavour is yeasty, spicy, and pretty boozy. All told, a nice, large format saison with good strength, some rye heat, and a relatable name. I'd drink it again, but maybe not tonight.

Rating: 7.5 out of 10.
