Bayou Teche Saison D’Ecrevisses has a thin, off-white head, and a very clear, brilliant golden appearance with some bubble streams and essentially no lacing left behind. But, later, when I swished the bottom of the bottle, it produced a thick, froathy head, with a heavy lacing sheen. The aroma is of rich, spicy malt, and maybe some sort of light, caramel candy. Taste is of the spicy, peppery rye malt, sweet and yeasty white bread, bread crust, and a good, hearty hop bitterness to back it up. Mouthfeel is light and watery, with a bit of slickness, and Bayou Teche Saison D’Ecrevisses finishes mostly dry, lively, and drinkable. Overall, this is a wonderful beer, and I hope you’ll get to try it!

Bayou Teche Brewery Saison D'ecrevisses

Appearance: solid amber, puffy head and a bit of lacing.

Smell: fermenting fruits and a barley backbone.

Taste: sour citrus and apple notes and a hint of barley in the backbone.

Mouthfeel: medium and sour with a pleasant smoothness.

This would pair very well with boiled crawfish. I really wish I had some to go along with this brew. It is not the most complex, but one can find many fruits included inside. This would be great in a session.

Had a sample of this at a beer tasting at Weidmanns in Meridian.

Pours golden color with bright white head that lingers pretty well.

Lots of plum and banana notes from the Belgian yeasts. Taste is similar with hints of grassiness. Very bitter in the finish and aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is light bodied and dry. Average carbonation.

Overall this is good. Worth a try.

Bayou Teche Brewery - Saison D'écrevisses

Got this thanks to a friend and shared it with a friend.

Look - Pours an almost clear golden with a slight copper hue. Thick foamy head with chunks of dense lacing. Slight carbonation.

Smell - Sour Belgian yeast Saison. The sour is almost slightly bitter. Floral. Proves a point.

Taste - light watery with a smooth sour yeast and a surprisingly bitter pinch. Crisp and dry.

Mouthfeel - If Saison was a lemonade, and that lemonade was a beer, this would be it. Thirst quenching and crisp. Not boozy. Great drinkability. Dry as hell. Light bodied.

Overall - Quite a take on this style. Remarkably dry, crisp and refreshing. Maybe not the best representation of this style but as a Summer brew goes, this definitely works.

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

Appearance: Pours a clear amber color with a couple of inches of foam that deliver a respectable amount of lacing

Smell: Caramel malt, with a peppery/herbal aspect

Taste: Caramel malt, up front, with a spicy herbal character that develops, in the middle; after the swallow, there is a bit of the farmhouse in the profile, though the overall effect is more of a spicy/herbal amber

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Had this with a crawfish boil and it is a terrific pairing as the malt and the peppery phenols pair nicely with the spices that are added to the boil

Poured into a large snifter glass. The beer pours clear golden-orange with abundant carbonation and a thick, white head. Some splotchy lacing is left on the side of the glass as the head recedes. There are aromas of barley malt, peppery rye malt, and lemon. The smell is bright and refreshing. The malts do come through in the flavor, but the peppery flavors hit up front. I get the lemon flavor as well as some grassy type hops. The malt provides a nice bready body. The body is medium with strong carbonation. The finish is very dry and the drinkability is pretty high. This is a very good beer that I could imagine pairing with a crawfish boil. The guys at Bayou Teche are continuing to deliver good things.

Pours out like a light pale ale with a thin head. Smell is strong of herbal, floral hops with some caramel backing. Not much yeast presence. A little bit of diacetyl? Taste is about the same. Yeast is barely there. Some caramel malt sweetness is apparent. This reminds me more of what you'd think of as a biere de garde as it is more malt and hop forwarded than yeast forwarded. Kind of toasty in the finish. Mouthfeel could use a little more punch. Overall this isn't that bad. Ridiculous label.

Poured from a 650 ml bottle into a footed tulip.

A: Golden, ruby hue. Pours about a half finger, bubbly, white head. Settles quickly, leaving a smattering of bubbles. Tiny effervescence rises throughout. Thick lacing remains.

S: White bread and hay, with just the slightest raspberry and orange citrus tone.

T: Grainy and earthy, with a nice moderate bitter hop, bitter pecan shells, and a distant rumor of fermented fruit.

M: Light body, crisp character, steely feel remains throughout experience. Just a bit of a bitter finish.

D: Sip and enjoy, or powerdrink... your choice.

Atmosphere is pretty good. Nice hue, pretty heavy carbonation, bubbly head, and pretty solid lacing. Nose is bready with slight fruit notes. Grainy flavor with a really nice hop balance, a tease of fruit finishes it off. Overall, this is a really good quaff.
