Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Our Spring Saison is light blonde in color with a fresh hoppiness and a wild and rustic Brettanomyces character. Lighter in color and alcohol than our Saison Rue, yet equally complex in its own way.

The wild yeast in Saison de Lente will continue to dry it out over time, giving a slightly more mature character to vintage bottles. Perfect for warmer weather picnics and Spring celebrations.

S - Lots of Belgian yeast, pepper, lemon, yeast, and grassiness.

T - The taste starts with heavy Belgian yeast, pepper, and lemon. Some citrus and pepper spiciness in the finish.

M - Light bodied with high carbonation. Very crisp and refreshing. Dry finish.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 12/19/2013. Pours slightly hazy bright golden color with a 2-3 finger dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense foamy lacing clings around the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, white grape, peach, pineapple, pepper, cracker, bread, hay, straw, grass, musty funk, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/funky/spicy yeast, pale malt, and earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, peach, pineapple, white grape, pepper, cracker, bread, hay, straw, grass, musty funk, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Good amount of earthy yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, apple, peach, pineapple, white grape, pepper, cracker, bread, hay, straw, grass, musty funk, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity and balance of fruity/funky/spicy yeast, pale malt, and earthy hop flavors; with a great crisp malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent saison style. All around great balance and complexity of fruity/funky/spicy yeast, pale malt, and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
