Samuel Adams Rustic Saison


Sam Adams’ Rustic Saison is, as the bottle says, “brewed in the farmhouse beer tradition.”   Having never had a Saison before, I don’t have any experience as to what that should mean, but if this beer is any indication, it’s another way of saying “lager.”   It’s a golden color, maybe a bit darker than the average lager, but that’s the first thing that came to mind when I poured it.   The nose is primarily yeast, and it indeed tastes like a lager, though with a bit more sweetness in the finish.  It’s refreshing, and if you like Boston Lager, you’ll probably like this.

I give it a 3 out of 5.
