Edmund’s Oast Circe

Posted: March 2, 2017 in Edmund's Oast, Reviews, Saison/Farmhouse Ale

This was another brew that I had at Edmund’s Oast. Their food was absolutely amazing, by the way, and this was the best meal that I had on vacation. If you’re anywhere close, you need to find yourself here.

ABV: 9%

Style: Saison/Farmhouse Ale

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “A key focal point of Edmund’s Oast is the onsite brewery, where a number of the restaurant’s unique and unusual draft beers are made in house, including brews aged in a small, dedicated barrel aging room. Not only is Edmund’s Oast one of the few brewery based restaurants in the area, the team has also carefully curated a high-quality beer program featuring guest taps from the best local, national, and international brewers complemented by an expansive specialty/reserve bottle list.”

Random: The service was really impressive as well.

The beer poured with a half a finger of white head that dissipated quickly. Despite this, it left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was hazy and dark yellow. I could see a lot of carbonation. The nose had a marked citric note with lemon rind and lemon flesh. It also had a white grape scent after a few sniffs. There was also a sweetness that followed up with a candi sugar note and bubblegum. The taste was incredibly complex. It started with a lot of bready yeast and quickly went into the same bubblegum sweetness. It had a little bit of clove spice and then the Brett came through, which dried the beer out. The booze was hidden well. It had a thicker body with high carbonation. The finish was lengthy and dry with Brett. This was an enjoyable beer and the combination of the sweet notes with the Brett had me coming back for me. If you’re in Charleston, search this one out.
