4.08/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Bottled May 2011 (Batch 2)

Well shoot. This is just an all around good beer.

Appearance is a cloudy gold, much like you would see in a deep Belgian white.

Smell is quite much an array of honey, light caramel and a variety of spices. It almost has a Tripel quality to it.

Taste is intriguing. Playing off the smell, there's a first hit of barely sweetness followed by the deeper notes of honey and rye. The carbonation hits quite well and doesn't stand in the way of the taste, but instead leads to a light-bitter and spicy end. From start to finish, it's a full-bodied beer.

This is quite a complex brew. It's quite well balanced with the spices not being too overpowering and not being too sweet. I definitely recommend!

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from bottle into Pretty Things globe/tulip.
Golden amber color with a finger of white head. Nice peppery and slight citrusy saison aromas. Flavors of peppery saison and rye up front with a big malty bready and rye finish. Fairly hopped - spicy saaz like hops maybe? Full malty mouthfeel - maybe a bit heavy but its pleasant. Overall, this is a really nice classic saison. Very enjoyable.

3.24/5  rDev -18%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a bottle at home.

A: deep golden color with orange hues

S: some clove and pepper phenolics from Belgian yeast; slight grainy aroma from wheat, oats

T: a bit of spice and pepper, finishes bitter; slight kick from rye is apparent, some bready notes from other grains

M: well carbonated, medium body; present on tongue long after finish; carbonation helps keep it lighter in mouth

O: overall a good saison with some amber influence; works well on a cool fall afternoon

This would work nicely with spicy Thai food or a rich pork dish with some peppery or herbal and phenolic notes.

We put a 1/6th keg of this on tap, and it was sold out in 7 days! This is a full bodied, harvest time saison. More brown, richer and slightly sweeter than many saisons (and Pretty Things own signature Jack D'or). Pours a light amber, darker than most saisons, with an aroma of rye and roasted oat in the mix of grains. Tasting it leads to a very full bodied mouthfeel (almost cream-soda like) with just enough of a hop kick to cleanse the palate. A very nice seasonal style for the cooling New England Fall.
