4.25/5  rDev +15.8%

Golden color, clear with a little presence of small bubbles. Nice white head thrones on it. Nice small bubbles. The head is tenacious and sticks well to the glass. The aroma is peppery with some orange. Slight notes of sugar too. Spicy in the nose (very light). In the mouth, its typical saison stuff. Mmmmm likes it. Delicious. Peppery (black pepper?). Fruity too. The finish is typical of black pepper. Delicious....

This is an excellent saison. Another good one from Beau's.

600 mL bottle packaged 6/27/14 at 40degrees into snifter
Aroma of yeast phenolics (weak) and orange (very weak)
Head large (6.5 cm), white, frothy, verrrrry slooooowly diminishing to irregular 2 cm frothy layer
Lacing good – thick clots and partial rings of tiny to small bubbles
Body light yellow, cloudy, continual rising bubbles
Flavor of spice and orange, ends with a spicy bitter after taste; no hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate light, watery, lively carbonation

Appearance 4, Aroma 3.75, Flavor 4.25, Palate 4.25, Overall 4.0625. Final weighted score: 4.1
A pretty decent saison in which the spices and orange override the yeast phenolics to lower the funk level.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass, colour is a light orange gold, very clear with a nice cap of white head and good lacing.

S- light florals, lavender and lemon, also a distinct yeasty character, almost dunnage but with the florals it is quite light and appetizing.

T- pale malts, cleans to some lemon spice, full floral character, thick yeast in the middle then it falls off, leading to a drying, banana bread like finish. Has a pleasant lightness to it, pale malts are matched with some yeasty earthy(coriander and clove) notes and some orange pith, all around taste is full, and pretty satisfying, finish could be more balanced and crisp.

M - quite sessionable with the light floral and bright character, yeast does full out the body pleasantly and suitably assertive carbonation, a bit sticky on the finish for the style though.

Enjoyable saison, though geared more to be flavourful and sessionable rather than complex. Enjoyable and pleasant flavour, though the yeast really doesn't act to elevate this too much, and the finish is dry, some hop bitterness, didn't pick up much elderflower until I noticed it on the label, might help explain some of the jammy floral notes, these get more cloying as the beer warms. Good beer, just not a great saison by my measure, fairly one dimensional, but drinks well and is quite refreshing.

Purchased at the LCBO for $7.85 for a 600ml bottle. Served at 6deg C in a draught glass

A- Opens well and pours a high white head that lasts. Golden good

S- Belgium good yeast

T- Definite Belgium clone. Not that good of one though. Good but not all that complex.

M- Dry and tight

O- Ok but will not buy again. Not even for $5. Just not worth it

Food Pairing

This ok beer went well with... fried cabbage with sausage.

Enjoy!!

600 mL bottle picked up at the LCBO; packaged June 12 2014 and served slightly chilled. This is the second bottle I've had over the last two weeks or so.

Pours a bright golden-blonde colour, hazy and highly effervescent; generating two fingers of pillowy white froth. It recedes very gradually over the next few minutes, coating the glass with a curtain of lace before settling into a more manageable half-cm of creamy head and collar. This one looks the part, but isn't particularly aromatic. Wheat sweetness is overshadowed by lemon and orange citrus, yeast, clove and some floral notes, which I presume are from the elderflower. Not bad, but too muted.

Thankfully, the flavour profile has a little more kick behind it than the nose did. Grainy malts and wheaty sweetness provide a backbone, with more of the orange peel and lemon citrus notes mentioned earlier coming through at first. It becomes less fruity and more spicy/yeasty toward the finish, with clove and pepper accompanying a floral, herbal bitterness that only briefly lingers on the palate. Dry aftertaste. Medium-bodied, possibly leaning on the light side of that category, with aggressive carbonation that well-complements the spicy finish. Extremely drinkable for something that is basically 6%, and quite refreshing.

Final Grade: 3.79, a B+. Beau's Patio Saison is a good beer, but there is some very stiff competition in this category. This brew's highlights include the nice blend of spice, citrus and floral notes, as well as the crisp, active mouthfeel. I'm enjoying this saison, but to be honest I've never really had a saison I didn't enjoy, and this one isn't particularly cheap, nor is it particularly great compared to its competitors (especially when you take the price point into account). As is the case with Nickel Brook's Le Paysan, this is a solid brew that is worth a try, but in a pinch I'm more likely to grab Black Oak's, or one of the Goose Island saisons over either.

Pours a bright, hazy, soft orange color with a bone white head. Some lace, decent retention. Spicy, herbal peppercorn aroma with a bit of lemons and light citrus, a hint of musk and spicy yeast notes. Touches of floral ops, with bits of citrus rind, musky yeast notes, pepper and earthiness. Light and airy body, crisp, well carbonated, refreshing. Overall, it's a very quaffable Saison ripe for the warm summer heat that's knocking at the door here in the south.

Thanks Chris!
