Availability: Spring

Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

750mL into a Hennepin glass. Pours a hazy straw color w/ a big fluffy, rocky head that leaves behind big clumps of lace. Some people don't like overcarbonated beers, but I'm not one of them. A beautiful beer.

Aroma is spicy, fruity and earthy with notes of banana and clove.

Taste has a nice citrusy twang, along with spice and pear/apple. There's a slightly metallic note that keeps me from giving this a 4.5, but it's not overly distracting.

Mouthfeel is clean and semi-dry, drinkable. Carbonation gives just the right amount of liveliness.

Overall another great beer from The Bruery. May lack some of the depth of the truly world-class saisons, but a welcome choice anyday nonetheless.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottled: unk (guessing 2012, though could be 2011 based on where I found it)

Pours a hazed peach with three fingers of relatively persistent bone white foam. This eventually falls to a central dome and the smells include Co2, lemon zest, peppercorn, hints of yeast and clay, overall a nice clean smell. Flavor is a bit overkill with the brett for me with a slightly chaulky note, then there is the soil and some metallic notes. I like the slightly sweet accent the yeast and grain seem to imbibe and the bitterness that comes along as well, but overall not a huge fan of the flavor. Pretty full bodied with light carb and a semi dry finish. Decent beer, not gonna buy it again though.
