Fuzzy Vegas is a Belgian-style Saison that’s brewed by Tenaya Creek Brewery, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a tulip glass from a 16 oz. can.
What You Need to Know
Fuzzy Vegas was originally produced in collaboration with British Columbia-based Fuggles & Warlock Craftworks. Tenaya Creek solely produces the ale now and is otherwise a typical Belgian-style Farmhouse Ale brewed with peaches. So how was it? Let’s get to the review.
The Saison pours a cloudy golden hue and is topped by a finger-thick cap of fizzy white foam that shows fair retention. The head’s reduction doesn’t leave behind any lace or residue.
Out of the can, the aroma is initially sweet with a scent of peaches and backed by musty yeast.
The palate is led by a taste of bready malt that transitions to a modest bite of citrus and cracked pepper before bottoming out with sweet peach, yeast, and more bready malt.
The feel is relatively smooth with a medium body and matching carbonation. The sweetness on the back end is lightly coating.
The presentation of the Fuzzy Vegas lacks the trademark Belgian lace and its feel doesn’t quite have enough carbonation. The aroma is nice enough but fades quickly. The palate has the yeast and spice you’d expect of the style and the use of peach is nicely complementary. Overall, Fuzzy Vegas doesn’t wow, but it’s not too bad, either.
