TUPPS Brewery – Saisons

Posted by

Two recent releases from TUPPS.  Check out our thoughts below.

TUPPS Brewery in McKinney has been on fire lately.  Ever since we tried their Full Grown Man stout late last year, we have been in love with their beers even more than we already were.  This year they have been releasing bottles of some of their more limited beers, starting with the barrel aged version of their Full Grown Man (which we wrote about last month). Most recently they have released another version of the stout called Full Grown Hombre, which we tried at the brewfest in Lewisville. Between those releases, they put out a pair of saisons.  So how are they?

Imperial Saison

beeeeeeeer-2

We already had tried this beer as a taster a couple months ago, and what stuck out then is the same that did now, the peppercorns. There are good citrus flavors and a bit of alcohol (not surprising at 9.4%), but in the end, a strong peppery flavor is what dominates.  It’s not a bad thing.  We liked this one a lot, but they could have backed off of the pepper a bit to let the other flavors shine more.

Dark Saison

This beer was the highlight of this pair.  Based on the Untappd ratings, you might think that it’s nothing special, but we’re not sure what people are tasting. The sage flavor is strong and hits you as soon as you open the bottle.  It’s the dominant flavor, but the spiciness of the cinnamon and cloves compliment it well. This is a unique take on a saison and it’s great that it’s out in bottles now. We highly recommend it to anyone who wants to try something a bit different.

Have you tried these beers?  What do you think? Let us know in the comments below, or on Twitter or Facebook.
