Blackberry Farm is renown for its food, hospitality, and impeccable service. Tucked away in Walland, TN, it’s one of the country’s most prestigious resorts. I visited Blackberry Farm back in 2013, so when I heard Coolvines was carrying their full line of seasonal saisons I had to try one.
The hazy, straw-colored saison is as summery as you can get. It pours with an impossible-to-stop white head that adds a thick layer of froth. The first sip is a little malty, but it then opens up with a citrus, tangerine-like flavor mixed with a little sweet grapefruit. Carbonation is on the medium to high level, and the finish has the perfect mix of bitterness and spice. Alone or with dinner — it’s the perfect summer drink.
