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.

A light golden color with hints of orange for additional color. The head is huge, bright white and craterous. The retention is impressive and it leaves the glass sticky as it finally dies down.

The smell is Brett yeast, a bit fruity with some carbonation/champagne like qualities, cracked pepper.

The taste is identical to the smell. Very champagne like, a hint of funky yeast, and the pepper. However, the pepper is just a bit too much for me, especially after it starts to warm.

Mouthfeel is dry and crisp. The pepper is a bit strong and there is a slight bite to the drink I can't quite put a finger on. There's something in the finish I don't like, but again, I can't put my finger on it.

Overall, it's a pretty good beer. There are things to like, but some things I didn't like also. It's a warm seasonal drink and I'm drinking it in November, that could be it.

A - HOLY HEAD! LOTS OF BIG WHITE FOAM! Opens like Champagne... Brew is cloudy yellow/orange.

S - Some nice lemon. Lots of Brett. Smells wild.

T - Tastes wild. Very easy going brew! Big spice and brett notes.

M - Very carbonated, but it's done right. Dry. Delicious. Light.

O - Quite the interesting brew.... Glad I picked this one up.
