Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: ClockworkOrange on 01-02-2009

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.

Reviewed from notes. 750 ml bottle poured into a Weyerbacher tulip...

A - Pours a murky, golden-yellow color that reminds me of straw or hay. Really nice, 3 finger, fluffy head forms, bone white in color. Retention and lacing are really nice. I don't normally get impressed by a beers appearance, but this one is really nice.

S - Nice floral and lemony scents all around. Some funkiness comes through as well. Brett aromas and some subtle spice comes through too.

T - Citrus and some fruits come first. Lemons, pear and apple all together. Dry malts come next followed by a subtle spice I assume is from the yeast strain. Some wheat comes out as well.

M - Lighter bodied beer with a pretty hefty carbonation level. Refreshing beer for sure with a slightly dry finish.

O - I liked this one. One of the better saisions I have tasted, though I think some improvements could be made.
