Which BJCP Category for a Strawberry Rhubarb Saison?

Fri Jan 27, 2017 10:51 am

So I have a strawberry rhubarb saison that I brew that I am wanting to enter in to a couple competitions. I'm curious as to what category I should enter it in. I'm thinking 29A (Fruit Beer). That seems most appropriate, but I'm looking for others' opinions since it has the rhubarb in it as well.

Many sites seem to say that rhubarb is a veggie, but can also be considered a fruit (or at least eaten like one, whatever the hell that means?).

I think your best bet is to place it in the fruit beer category like you originally stated.

Fruit Beer is fine.
