Rockmill Brewery in Lancaster, Ohio is known for exquisite farmhouse, Belgian styled brews and they recently released a gluten-free Saison made with certified gluten-free malt from Grouse Malting & Roasting Co. We were lucky enough to be there for this brew and get to try the delicious final results! This beer is available at select locations in the Columbus area and at Rockmill?s tasting room.
Rockmill Saison Tasting Notes:
Appearance: Brilliantly clear of any haze, clean 10-11 SRM (22 EBC). Poured with a very white veil head.
Aroma: Apricot esters up front, with light raw grain and bready aroma, followed again by stonefruits (maybe peach) finish.
Mouth feel: Good weight, honey (almost chewy) body, leaves pallet cleanly with a thin honey film.
Taste: Peach/light stonefruits upfront, honey, honey body, bready graininess and honey finish.
Flavor and Overall: Great saison. Light stonefruit esters are very appealing. The honey, bready body leaves you craving more. Slightly sweet, but clean finish.
