23 Trees is a Citra Saison with a mission statement.
Black Isle have long been champions of organic produce and environmental protection and have pledged to plant two hundred trees to replace the twenty three ancient trees that were cut down on the edge of their land.
I for one support them wholeheartedly and think that getting the message across with a beer that tastes as good as this one is a great way of spreading the news.
And so to the beer.
Well, it pours a warm gold and smells of honey, mown lawns and lemon curd.
There’s a solid malt body that’s rich with shortcake and caramel, honey, French bread and wafers, the Citra hops cutting across all this soft sweetness with a sharp swipe of lemon zest and dandelions, lime leaves and marmalade.
All of this is warmed through by a good earthy spice form the yeast that makes the finish of the beer feel round and meaty and satisfying.
