Notes/Commercial Description:
Saison Tonnellerie is a new addition to our portfolio of Belgian-inspired saison ales and it could be argued that it is the most traditional as it was 100% fermented in oak barrels.

This sophisticated beer has picked up a rustic character akin to the original beers of the Belgian countryside that would be brewed in the colder months of the year, when fermentation temperatures were more forgiving, and served to the farm staff to keep their thirst quenched all summer long. With Spring upon us, you are just in time to stock up on this new ale for the warmer months.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

A: Straw with a very vigorous head. Champagne-like.

S: Belgian yeast esters, oak, a touch of pineapple and banana.

T: Oak, banana, hay, cloves.

M: Crisp, dry, aggressive carbonation.

O: A great saison. The Bruery is one of my favorite breweries but I've been disappointed with all of their saisons so far. This was quite the departure. Perhaps I'll try giving their other saisons more time to develop in the bottle.
