3.03/5 rDev -26.3%
Appearance: Huge head, minimal lacing. Perhaps a bit over carbonated, amber in color.
Smell: Big rye malt scent, spice, and light (not enough) funk.
Taste: Malt and rye, bit of hops and alcohol. Missing that good funk I was hoping for.
Mouthfeel: Bit fizzy yet chewy, hint of alcohol.
Drinkability: Low, no need to try this one again.
Edge of what a saison should be, at least in my book.

Pours a very cloudy orange. Somewhat unfiltered looking. Large, off-white head.
Smells like cloves, spices, some citrus/hay notes, spices, spices, and spices. Urgh.
Taste is a bit muddled. The sharp, biting grass/citrus notes carry with it a hint of lemon, but the weird spicy components just take over. There is a sour, yeasty breadiness to it ... quite pungent. Almost peppery, in some respects. I admit, I'm not the biggest saison fan. This was really not my cup of tea.
Decently carbonated. Not particularly drinkable.

Cellar temp to Saison dupont Becker
A; pours a bronze-yellow w/ delicate
carbonation to style. Lookin' good!
S; lemon zest & citrus pith w/ a dusty
rye spice carrying through. Orange peel &
candy sweetness carrying through. Brett is earthy.
T; lemon candy w/ doughy pale malts & rye spice..
Herbal hops. Brett washes things down in an earthy
medicinal way.. Peach preserves & corn sugar present.
M; This is where things are strange for me. This
Saison is way too syrupy & full. Rye is nice & dry.
I may be alone here, but not everything coheres for
D; my first experience w/ the Bruery, & I'd love
To try more, but one & done for me w/ this Saison.
