Bullfrog Kiwi Berry Farmhouse Wheat

Posted: April 29, 2015 in Bullfrog Brewery, Reviews, Saison/Farmhouse Ale

The other half and I headed to Isaac Newton’s last night because she was in the mood for burgers. We got the burgers for a 2 for $22 deal (with an appetizer included). It would have been great if our burgers were not overcooked and awful. This was the beer that she initially ordered and absolutely hated, so I ended up with it. Let’s see how it was.

ABV: 6.5%

Style: Saison/Farmhouse Ale

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Dry, quenching farmhouse ale brewed with French pale malt and a portion of unmalted wheat. Fermented with a house blend of three different yeast strains including Brett. Finished by steeping with whole kiwiberries.”

Random: This brewery recently did a tap takeover at Newton’s that I missed.

This beer poured with no head on top of a hazy brownish-yellow body with light carbonation visible. There wasn’t any remnants of lacing left on the glass. The nose had notes lemon, tart berries and funk. It had this old musty smell to it, which wasn’t pleasant. The taste was really tart at first, and then the musty berry flavor came through. It was a mix of funk and old, dank berries. Again, I didn’t get kiwi. I would say that it was a combination between raspberry and lemon. There was some bready yeast to it, but very little spice. It had a medium thick body with moderate carbonation. The finish was long and musty with funk. This beer was an absolute chore to drink. The mustiness was really unpleasant and overwhelmed any other flavor that was in it. I would avoid this one.
