ok so this was also at the stag's head because it was the pretty things tasting there.

but this is a fabulous entreprise and this was my favourite beer tasted, so far as to have a large one on tap afterwards.

Cloudy golden pour with a frothy white head. very slight carbonation within....not too visible.

smell was very spicy, a very strong blend of mustard, some nuts and some honey, sounds very much in disarray but rather comes together very nicely.

Now i had not tried such a style being approached by the american breweries in such fashion. unextreme, back to the baseline with an exceptional emulation of all things belgian, very full taste of peaches and lime, with a smokey bitter finish. delicious.

definetly a sign of good- rather pretty- things to come.

Picked this up at the Foodery in Northern Liberties
Batch Ten
Pours a deep gold color almost amber with a thick white head.
Aroma is a nice coriander and orange peel with some subtle hints of fruity esters. Very clean no off aromas.
Very spicy flavor i get a nice hoppy bittereness that segues into a soft malt background. The spices seem to be coriander, orange peel and some ligt pepper notes, although the pepper could be some of the yeast characteristics and carbonic acid.
Mouthfeel is good yet it could be dryer for the style. Maybe they should try kraeusening a batch to get that dry dupont bite.
Nonetheless for a brewer with no brewery this is an excellent beer, it must be hard to brew on someone else's system and produce exactly what you are looking for, still I would drink this again as it is a solid belgo-american.

Big thanks to...uh...Larry? Damn im trading too much.

Pours savagely foamy with a monster white head. Nice clear light yellow with ample carbonation. Nice lacing, but not what i expected after the insane head.

Nose is pretty bomb. Lots of light fruits, almost peach. Some clear white pepper notes and strong belgian yeast aromas.

Wow. Pretty damn tasty saison. Strong belgian yeast notes, ample light fruit, slight peach and slight white grape (pinot juice?). Clean white pepper and a little floral soapiness. Nice and dry.

Mouthfeel is great, not overcarbed for the style despite the head climbing out of the bottle. Nice and dry, good viscosity.

Drinkability is pretty strong. There is a tiny touch of heat that is a bit too prominent for the style, but not bad at all. Could easily wreck a couple bombers i'd say.

Overall a very nice and well made saison. There's some small room for improvement, but this is certainly one of the better american made versions, very authentic and to style. An excellent beer.

I had this 22 ounce bottle at TJ Everydays in Paoli, PA. It came in a snifter. It came too cold so I let it warm for awhile.
A: The body is a clear golden color. The head is three fingers tall, space lacing, great retention and a dark white color.
S: The aromas are horse blanket, sparge and urinal.
T: The flavors are bitter, yeasty and google.
M: The mouthfeel is very crisp and the body is medium.
D: This beer is outstanding.
Don't drink and review.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a De Glazen Toren tulip.

BOTTLED May 2009
Batch Five

A: Pours a gorgeous, hazy, glowing peach color with a full three fingers of creamy, off-white meringue perched on top. Retention is absolutely fantastic due, in part, to the ample carbonation on display here. The inside of my glass looks like a lace bomb exploded inside of it.

S: I was a little afraid that between the bottling date (5/09) and the tasting date (3/10) that some of the aromatics may have faded. Not so. Big time fruity nose. Pineapple, peach, pear, apple, and clementine. Spice aromas play a big role here as does fresh cut grass, lightly toasted malt, and some honey.

T: Just as above with the spicy qualities playing an even larger role. More white pepper type flavors as well as a flavor that I can only describe as pepper crusted citrus.

M: Initially quite sticky and fruity. That quickly dries out a tad in the middle while gaining a fantastic prickly/spicy/peppery tingle that plays out on every surface in my mouth.

D: What can I say but, wow. I was awed and humbled by this wonderful Saison. 10 months in the bottle and this feels like it's just getting started. Would've loved to try this fresh to compare it to how amazing it is now.

Fluffy white foam topped clear, golden beer. Chunky lacing with good head retention supported by a constant stream of bubbles rising to the surface. Fruity hop aroma was apparent when the bottle was cracked. Notes of hay and citrus zest, apple and white pepper. Smooth texture, fine carbonation. Dry malt with an edge of fruit. Solid, but not overwhelming, bitterness. Light peppery spice in the finish. Great texture with a very refined, well balanced flavour.

Pretty Things Jack D'Or Saison Americain

Highly hazed, golden-hued, huge, billowy head, looking beautiful, indeed.

Lemon and orange in the aroma, straw, some wild, funky yeast notes.

Taste: Spices and hops hit hard right from the start, getting sharp, spikey, stanky. Fresh and fierce. Zesty. Full-bodied, good, grainy texture. Long finish. Feels like some wheat malt in there? Good drinkability, matched with unending hops and spice delivery, citric fruit flavor riding along all the while.

Jack D'or easily acquits itself and can stand with some of the best saisons you can find. Recommended.

Oh, but one more thing, Pretty Things, ...don't you know you're driving your mommas and poppas insane? Got to make it plain, better make way for the homo superior!

Batch Three, Bottled April, 2009

Pours an opaque golden straw orange into my DFH Signature glass. Head retention is relentless; fluffy and holds shapes like it were bathtub soap. Lacing is also very strong yet slippery.

Smells of spicy yeast and pepper aromas with that wheat and malt nose.

Taste is outstanding. So hard not to just quaff all the way down. The spicy nature of this Farmhouse finds that spot in the back of your throat to really attack with the peppery, yeasty flavors. Finishes very dry.

Mouthfeel is very pleasant. Almost tickles the entire mouth and throat during the session.

Drinkability would be a 6 for me if it were a choice on here. I don't know if its a right place/right time thing for me right now but this beer is quenching my thirst amazingly.

On tap at Rattle 'N' Hum. Strong aromas, with white pepper and apple. Cloudy white head and white lace. Good bitterness edge to it. Unique saison, very American owing to the bitterness and attention to aromas, and bold spice. Appropriate carbonation, wonder what it would be like on cask.

On tap at Green Street, Cambridge, MA.

Appearance: Fluffy 1-inch white head that slowly dissipates leaving rings of lacing. Solid orange juice orange. Beer leaves walls of lacing.

Smell: Aromatic citrus (orange rind). Floral soap. Malt background.

Taste: Orange-rind, a good amount of funk, sweet with some almost toasted malty flavors in the finish. Nice breadiness underpinning the overall flavor. Tangerine comes out as it warms. The flavor is light, but there's a full warm citrus throughout, and a creamy, bright soapiness. Some spice too.

Mouthfeel: Creamy, though a little dry. Decent amount of carbonation.

Drinkability: Great flavor and mouthfeel, little noticeable alcohol. Easy to drink.

Solid, impressive saison with lots of nice little details everywhere in the experience of drinking it.

Batch Ten - November 2009

A - A slightly aggressive pour yields a voluminous pure white pillow-like head which is both frothy and tightly compact with a slightly rocky top... Stellar retention... A geyser of carbonation spirals upward at a quick pace in the center of the glass with scattered slower paced carbonation around it... A vibrant golden color with a faint orange hue...

S - Belgian yeast is first to the nose... Mild lemon... A subtle coriander... Freshly gut grass on a perfect spring day... Slightly floral...

T - Similar to the nose, the Belgian yeast is first to palette... Natural lemon... Just a touch of honey... Wheat germ... Minor peppery notes on the finish....

M - Exceedingly consistent... Bone dry from beginning to end... Smooth... Slightly creamy...

D - Quaffability (is that a word) is off the charts... This is my introduction to Pretty Things and I can't wait to get my hands on their other offerings... This truly is a special offering... Loaded with subtle complexities... Also an exceptional value given the price of other top notch Saisons... This one really hit the spot and I can't wait to have another...

Bottled Oct 2009 Batch 9

Explosive head when poured into the glass. Slightly hazy golden color. Rocky lacing is left on the glass. Aroma consists of citrus fruit such as lemons, spices like cloves and pepper, and a touch of earthiness. Very saison like. The flavor is more fruity than spicy or funky. A bit of orange candy quality. Just light spice and barely any earthiness or tartness. Finishes dry with no lingering aftertaste. Light body with a nice carbonation. Maybe too much carbonation but it feels soft and silky so I did not mind the extra bubbles. Not the most complex saison but it is still quite enjoyable.

Bottles Nov. 2009, Batch 10. Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a pint glass.

a - Pours a murky yellow/gold color with a little orange. Two fingers of foam and low carbonation.

s - Smells strongly of yeast and some sweet malts of fruits, apples, as well as a little lemon.

t - Some sweetness up front, followed by some bitterness. At first got some sweet malts, yeast, and apples, and then some lemons and spices later. Pretty nice saison.

m - Light body with moderate carbonation. Feels light and easy to drink in your mouth.

d - Overall this was a pretty good saison. It wasn't as bitter or hard to drink as some other saison's I;ve had and I thought the flavors were good and it was a good representation of a Belgian.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from 22oz bottle to pint glass. This is from '09, Batch 10.

A - Light golden color with dense thick off-white head (rocky at the top). I poured it a little harder than I intended. There's lots of carbonation shooting up. Head begins to disappear after a few minutes, but maintains a nice thick level. Beer is nice and clear (Edit - Second glass poured hazy, and this has me a bit confused.) ; very yeasty in smell, but not in appearance.

S - Lots of yeast up front, and a good scent of Belgian candy sugar. I've never smelled this beer too carefully, but now I notice a little bit of a sulfur smell to it. I also get a little bit of citrus acidity and hop aroma. On the more imaginative side I think I get pepper, honey and black licorice, when I give it a hard smell.

T - Nice sweetness that's balanced out by the bitterness at the back of the palate. The bitter wins out a little bit. I like this. Also, the bitterness is accompanied by a citrus flavor. I also get the taste of honey. The most interesting part is the yeast flavor. It's very complex (there's definitely a bread-like taste to it).

M - Light to medium bodied w/ a decent kick of carbonation. It's not overly aggressive, but you definitely notice it w/ each sip. If you hold the beer in your mouth, it starts to sting the tongue a bit.

D - I originally thought the little bitter edge this beer has would limit my intake, but sessions with this beer have proven that wrong.

For some reason I smelled the empty bottle when I was done, and I got a very strong hop aroma, with a citrus/floral side to it. I've had this beer many times, and each time I pick up a new characteristic.

22 oz. bottle 11/09 Batch 10

A hazy, dazy yellow gold with orange hues. lively bubbles, 3" high and really enthusiastic, just like a good authentic Belgian would be. There's a dollop of creamy froth for a nice crown. Sticky icky lace all over the place. Large clumps of foam floating around like icebergs at all times. A perfect look.

spicey alcohol esters, minty-citrus wheat, corriander and vanilla and all-spice. Belgian candy sweetness in the malt. very nice.

wow, what a jazzy mouthfeel! this stuff dances all over your face! Very crispy, peppery yeast, dry...amazing effect in the feel, very earthy and exciting. Sometimes the feel can be energy, and this one delivers it in spades. The yeast is very complex for an American version, with meaty, peppery, yeast, very earthy hops and yeast combo. The malt has a gentle sweetness that has the right subtle aspects that leave this ultra clean. There's citrus and juicy effects from the hops, not at all bitter with lemmon zest in the end. All these flavor's harmonize very well together. Balance is achieved in a major way here. quaff city.

A wonderful Belgo-Americano brew.

2.83/5  rDev -30.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours a light hazy shade of dandelion tinted amber with a monstrous puffy, bright white head and massive visible carbonation.

The smell is not all that complex although it is pungent. The first thing I get right off the bat is banana bread. Some sweet yeasty notes and white pepper just about sums up the nose.

Damn, the flavors come through very subdued. Some indiscernible sweetness up front followed by the slightest most minimalistic bit of drying lemony funk. The finish is nice and peppery with a hop driven spice and a touch of bitterness.

The carbonation is obviously from bottle conditioning, light and airy, effervescent and almost overdone. Thin as expected and nothing noteworthy really.

Overall I am not overly thrilled with this one, and I had high hopes. A bit of an underachievement in my eyes but I can see how a lot of people unfamiliar with the style would enjoy this immensely. Good flavors, just not nearly enough of them.

Batch 10, bottled November 09. Poured from a bottle into a tulip. The pour yields a cloudy orange body with a thick, foamy two finger bone white head. A swirl of the glass leaves some foamy lacing sticking to the sides.

The smell is bread and butter malts, crisp lemon zest, pepper, and sweet apples and cinnamon. The apple cinnamon components are very subtle, but they are a very welcome addition to the nose.

The taste is pretty standard for a saison. Light citrus, lemon zest and oranges, a slight peppery hop backbone and a healthy dose of bready sugar cookie malts. There are also hints of pears, a slight touch of the apple evident in the nose (but not as sweet an apple) and a nice alcohol sweetness as well.

The beer is light bodied, well carbonated and a nice representation of the style. The beer is full of flavors that remind me of summer and early fall, with a crisp and dry mouthfeel. Definitely something I will revisit.

Batch 5, May 2009, drunk in Jan 2010.

A. Pretty classic Saison - cloudy pale yellow, creamy, fluffy head, lace.

S. Odd, rather malty at first, spicy, dry, some dry, yeasty character, a bit hard to define. Interesting, caramel apple? Hmm.

T. Rather a good amount of malt here, but dried out... residual hop bitterness, vague spice, finishes sweet (too sweet?) and soft, with some light esters.

M / D. Soft and easy, odd finishing flavors are not entirely complimentary, but still, this is a solid, different and malty example of a Saison. Recommended, especially if you're local to these cats.

Thanks to NutBrown for the chance to try this one. Alan rules!

Batch 8 bottled July 2009.

I pop the cap and hear a nice hiss. The pour reveals a gorgeous hazy, nah cloudy orange yellow brew with close to 1 finger's worth of foam. Lots and lots of nice lacing sticking to the side of my glass.

With my nose hovering over the glass, I'm picking up plenty of lemon zest, some white pepper and other spiciness, some good aromas that only the Brett can bring....a very tactful nose as in it isn't overwhelming but very nicely done.

First sip brings the spiciness and lemon zest and the Brett to my tastebuds. The pepper makes this a really dry brew and I'm loving it. Some tartness from the citrus lemon pops up now and then but I can taste it mostly in the finish which adds to the dryness. As far as the malts role in this puppy, I'm getting some light notes of some bread. Overall, a very delicious Saison indeed.

The mouthfeel is on the low end of medium with the carbonation being close to the same. Nice and smooth overall.

Drinkability? Since the abv is reasonable and well hidden and the tastes here are anything but boring...this is a very easy drinking beer though I think, when I finish the 22oz, I'll be fully contented and not looking to grab another if I had one. That's not a slant on the beer in any way; most Saisons I've had are 1 and I'm done for one sitting. Having another on another day is a whole new ball game. ;^)

Appearance: orange-yellow in color, cloudy, 1/3 inch beautiful creamy head, medium carbonation

Smell: apple, flowers, alcohol, and spices

Taste: granny smith apple, grapefruit juice, coriander, and alcohol

Mouthfeel: light carbonation, sour-semi bitter mix, light bodied

Drinkability: A very interesting beer for my 500th review here. Very tasty for a saison and not as hard and biting as others I have had. A sipper and one per sitting, but I would like to have this again, especially on tap.

First Batch picked up at PH Provisions in Boston I believe. Bottled in November 2008. Paid just under $6 back then. Poured into a wobbly Duvel Tulip(oh noes!) that I also picked up in Boston for $2 at another establishment. *sigh*

I had this a couple times on tap before & wasn't blown away by it. Add in the homer atmosphere I was drinking it in, & great people behind it, I was torn. I brought a few back with me anyway, figuring the time in the bottle & change of scenery would do it some good. It wasn't long though, before Pretty Things invaded my neighborhood & the novelty of having out of state beer to share with friends was gone.

Big yeasty whiff right off the bottle before I even start pouring. Touch of bubblegum, touch of vinegar.

Golden, apple juice color. The yeast, just barely disturbed. A bit darker then when it was when fresh. A netting of bubbles surround a whitewash-colored head. Sticky, gritty, lace.

Smell is wintergreen-like hops, macerated lemon & orange zests, a touch of honey, & lots of nostril clearing, aerosol-like alcohol.

Taste was so much better, & so different from what I had on tap. A light oat-y cereal sweetness upfront, followed up with a lightly herbal, leafy green hoppy middle. It ends on dry crackery malt with a mild trail of steel-y hops. Not very phenolic. I can't complain much though. Dry is good.

Coating, but not greasy. Warming in a soothing, non-irritating way. Sane amount of carbonation. A solid saison. :)

Pours a very clear orange red with a nice sized head. Lots of thin lacing. Smells delicate like flowers with a hint of green apple. Taste is sweet and bitter. Very crisp and refreshing. Mouthfeel is thin and well carbonated. Very drinkable and very enjoyable. Pretty Things has become a great brewery and this is definitely their flagship beer.

Bottle via trade. I believe this came from jlindros.

Pours a somewhat hazy golden color with a creamy lasting white head and excellent lacing.

Aroma is very peppery with funk and bready pale malt. Right on style and very nice-smelling.

Flavor is great, yeasty and peppery, with pale malt and floral hops. Somewhat complex for a saison, and really tasty.

Medium-light bodied with medium-high carbonation and a long finish.

Drinkability is high, as this beer keeps you wanting more. This was my first Pretty Things beer, and is an absolute winner.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a pint glass. Nov 2009 batch. Pours a rich golden-orange with 2-3 fingers white foam head which dissipates slowly. A lot of carbonation. Difficult for me to place the aroma, but ultimately hints of orange. Taste is pleasant complex combination of fruity, earthy, and spicy, the latter taking over into peppery aftertones. Initially carbonation was a bit overpowering, but fortunately died down with continued drinking. Bit hard to pin down, but very good.
