Big white head sits on a hazy, straw-colored beer. Head retention is very good and lacing is good. Very nice aromas are of spicy yeast, lemons and other fruits, wheat malts and cloves.
Taste is very dry and features a sharp hop bitterness and some tartness. Flavors of grapes and wine show an acidic character. Rye malt makes for an edgy bite as well. Body is in the light to medium range and carbonation is high. The finish is very dry and also has an acidic quality.
Overall I'd say this is a good beer but had too much hop bitterness and dryness for my liking.

I'm in Boston, MA It's 89 degrees F with a 66 dregree dew point. Let's just say its hot and humid. Walked into a local pub and scanned the beer list. Traveling from Minnesota I'm not familiar with Pretty Things Beer & Ale Project.
I ordered the Jack D'Or and was amazed by its crisp refreshing character back by depth and complexity not often found in this style of brew.
Cool and recharged I'm ready to continue my walk on the Freedom Trail through Boston's historic areas where lived the Patriots whom founded our country.
I'm grateful a current resident founded Pretty Things Beer & Ale Project.

Jack D'Or is a brilliant, clear golden color, topped with a soapy head about 1 cm tall. It later recedes to a thin sliver, leaving a decent amount of lacing. The aroma is wonderfully complex... and pleasantly yeasty, of course. On one hand, I can pick up very sweet, candied phenols, and on the other, there is very sour and tart stuff in there as well. Apples and bananas come to mind first and foremost. The taste has a smack of sweetness and farmhouse funk, but in a flash that all gives way to a sour bitterness. There must have been a more than average amount of hops used here, for the style. It has a bit of a champagne-like character, being somewhat crisp, dry and metallic. Overall, an extremely interesting and high caliber Saison.
