Monday Brew Review – Bierwerk’s Rooibos Saison

Yes, that’s right. An African saison with tea. Ok, let’s dive in.Bierwerk Rooibos Saison glass and bottle

Two Best Things About This Beer:

  • Very sour (if you’re into that kind of thing)
  • Light spiciness and fruity funky smell (again, if you’re into that kind of thing)

Two Weaknesses:

  • It’s not very balanced. There’s little flavor to balance the sour, and it’s way over carbonated (see photo)
  • Where’s the tea? I looked really hard with my tongue but couldn’t find it. Maybe it’s tea that tastes like beer? I’ve never had rooibos tea before.

One thumb up. But I wouldn’t buy it again, nor bother going out of my way to find it.
