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.

Overall:
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.

Huh, very surprised to see the decent reviews on this beer.

Let's get down to it, there were basically no saison aspects to this beer. Tastes like a light beer with some odd sweetness on the end. No discernible peppery or spicy notes.

Overall, this was a fail. Perhaps we had a bad/old bottle, but this was mediocre at best.

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.
