Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Jason on 05-24-2012

Saison Renaud exemplifies a modern take on the traditional farmhouse ale. Made with just pilsner malt and Saaz hops, this recipe is made to truly let the assertiveness of our house yeast shine. Presenting a clean and crisp body, the spicy and fruity esters of the yeast prevail over a slight earthy bitterness from the Saaz.

Poured into a tulip glass. Big fluffy head.

Great aromas...lime and lemon citrus and florals stand out.

Cloudy appearance...small suspended matter.

Pine taste and slightly sour. Crisp and refreshing.

Light mouthfeel and quick on the palate.

A well put together brew by a brewmaster seeking perfection.

Recommended!

375ml brown bottle, caged and corked with a batch #.

Towering head, clear straw color. Aromas of lemongrass, chalky yeast, mineral, dried grass, lime pith, faintly medicinal and dragon fruit. Lighter bodied, tight crisp snap. Grainy, phenolic, bandaid, cotton candy, herbal, nutty, faintly warming, green tea, peppercorn, crackers, estery, vaguely astringent, yeast, dried green plantians ... you get it now, this is a complex ale. Dry grainy yeasty finish.

Saison full throttle, this is a serious beer that wants to have fun with your tastebuds.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: 1/2 inch head, cloudy, bright yellow in color, high carbonation

Smell: lemon, funk, and hay

Taste: follows the nose with light Belgian spices, lemon, funk, and hay

Mouthfeel: sweet and funky, light bodied with high carbonation

Overall: A solid easy drinking saison that for me just misses the good mark. Accurate according to style and clean but just no wow factor. That said, I would certainly not pass this up if offered to me.

Bought this newly-released Farmhouse-style ale by Mystic at Craft Beer Cellar in Belmont, MA. I had high hopes for this beer since Kate at the store recommended it as a good Saison for warm weather drinking. It didn't disappoint. Split the 750 mL bottle (which looks very classy and notes the beer was brewed with Saaz hops and Pilsner malt) with my girlfriend. Served in a pint glass.

Appearance (4.5/5): Saison Renaud pours a beautiful translucent orange-yellow color with a creamy, white, two finger head. In terms of color, it definitely compares favorably with other saisons. This is a stellar looking beer–I just wish I had a tulip glass to drink it from; then it would look even better.

Smell (4/5): Smells grassy, a little spicy funk from the yeast, light herbal hop character comes through, some sweet and biscuity aromas show as well. Definitely a complex aroma, though it isn't a home run. Nicely done. Could pass as a Belgian in a blind tasting.

Taste (4.5/5): Citric and grassy/herbal hops in the foretaste (this is a saison that leans to the hoppy side), then resolves with a muted sweetness. However, the defining characteristic of this beer is its earthy yeastiness. It adds a nice, mild spice to the flavor profile that really reminds one of a finely crafted Belgian saison. The yeast's flavor carries through from start to finish, and that's not a bad thing–it's great.

Mouthfeel (4/5): Saison Renaud has a smooth medium body and medium-low carbonation. These characteristics make for an easy and pleasant drink. The finish is not very long, with only a moderate aftertaste of herbal hops and biscuity malts. It also isn't as dry as some saisons tend to be.

Overall (4.5/5): Mystic has a very good beer on its hands here that is perfect summer weather drinking. I think its mixture of earthy yeastiness and hoppiness is spot on. The only criticism I can think of is that the carbonation could be a little higher. (But they're only a hair off, so it's not a big deal.) This is a classy beer made by people who obviously know how to brew farmhouse style ales–not an easy style, one with lots of nuance! Great job, Mystic. I will be buying more of your beer.

Mystic Brewery "Saison Renaud ale"
750 ml brown glass bottle, corked and caged; "Batch Number: 015"
$15.50 @ Stinky Brklyn, 215 Smith Street, Brooklyn, NY

Mystic's Saison Renaud pours a cloudy yellow-orange body that teems with very-fine streams of bubbles steadily rising towards its creamy white cap. Perhaps because of those bubbles, the head holds remarkably well.

In the aroma chalky yeast and citrus pith combine over a soft fruitiness that suggests apricot and peach.

The fruitiness carries over into the flavor. It's broad, somewhat tart, and displays apple, apricot, tangerine, peach, plum, pear, green banana, papaya, and suggestions of red berries and black cherry. Malt is present as well, offering a sweetish bed of straw and a dollop of honey for the fruits to play on, both counterbalanced by a touch of black pepper and delicate spiciness. As it warms it opens up, softening the tartish note as well as the chalky-pithy note, and adding a bit of floral character into the mix. It's moderately bitter but still finishes fairly dry with some residual mineralish yeasty character and dull spice adding a spot of assistance. Let it linger long enough and it becomes grassy, leafy, and subtly earthy.

It's really a remarkable ale in that it delivers such a balanced and rounded complexity with all of the components fitting so nicely together, while remaining very ethereal. There's a malt presence, but it's not malty; the yeast characteristics are clear, yet you still have to look; and it's sweetish but somehow dry at the very same time.

One of the most impressive beers I've had in a long time! This, my friends, is well worth seeking out!!!

Poured into a Gavroche tulip. Pours a hazy, light straw amber with light gold highlights and a one finger white head with great retention and lots of lacing. Aroma of bready, somewhat grainy malt, saison yeast, banana, light stone fruit; a nice saison profile. Flavor is bready and biscuit malt with pleasant raw grain elements, saison yeast, banana, faint light stone fruit and pear juice. Crackery, but rustic finish with light grassy hops. Medium bodied with pleasant, active carbonation. A very nicely made saison, somewhat maltier than traditional, but the yeast and dryness fit the style perfectly. Lots of rustic grain and grassy flavors with very light fruit. The pilsner malt really shines with the saison yeast, which is unexpected. I liked this a lot.

A: The beer is very hazy pale yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high white head that died down a little bust left a short head covering the surface and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of bready malts and yeast are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of noble hops along with strong notes of bready malts and a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very interesting, sharing similarities that you would expect from both a saison and a pilsener.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance:
Pours white head that lasts quite a while and laced quite well. The beer was a clear straw.

Smell:
The yeast strongly dominated the smell and the hops barely made it through. I also detected a bit of salt (or some other mineral) that complemented it well.

Taste: A very earthy and bitter taste. I get the hops and some other minerals that I think certainly include salt. The sheer intensity of the flavors make this a hard beer to drink though because the yeast tends to be very present and dominating with a "rustic" flavor if you will.

Mouthfeel:

Overall:
This saison is not for the weak of taste and can overwhelm you if you're not too careful.

A - Hazy, dark gold, minimal head. Little lacing.
S - Lots going on. Pepper, banana, grapes, light toast from the malt.
T - SImple compared to the nose. I get pepper, clove, banana. No malt flavor or sweetness.
M - A little thick for the style, a little light on the carbonation. It is very dry.
O - This is a nice saison, but not one I'd rush out to try again.

Straight pour from a 375ml/12.68oz cork-and-cage bottle to my nice Tired Hands stempiece; no freshness or other dating information that I can see, except for “BATCH# 005” printed on the label (with 005 hand-written).

Appearance (4.25): This pours with an active, fluffy, three-finger head that’s bone white and fluffy like a damn down pillow. The head recedes slowly, leaving an uneven, slightly cratered surface. The body is a gorgeous, very very hazy orange-amber. Glowing. Gorgeous, all around. The head shows good retention, taking its sweet time to die down, and leaves surprising lacing—a few spots and suds on the near and far sides, but to the right and left it leaves wide, fat, splotchy arches and sheets.

Smell (4.5): Lovely juicy and musty fruit tones in the nose, little bursts of peach and pear with a slightly vinous character mixing very evenly with a musty, dank, wet hay kind of earthiness. Besides that, there are some nice coriander- and white pepper-like spicy phenolic notes, but very balanced. And, lots of floral and spicy hop character—the Saaz is very evident. Damn good nose. It’s generally very subtle, but very well put-together.

Taste (4.0): Very interesting mix of bright, light fruit tones like apple juice with lemon accents, some slightly phenolic, chalky spice / medicinal backdrop, and some very floral notes. Delicious, and unexpectedly much less spicy than in the nose. The malt body is plain, crisp, lightly sweet, bready, blonde, oatmeal-y, crackery, and a perfect complement to everything else going on. But it releases more musty, vinous character as it warms: subtly tart white grapes, a bit of lemon juice acidity, a flourish of coriander, and all of it slightly damp and musty. For how evident the hops were in the nose, they’re subtle here: a floral character more than anything. The beer develops a very strong, bitter / tart grapefruit character towards the end, as it warms.

Mouthfeel (4.75): Excellent—very light, active carbonation that’s just so smooth and fluffy—bottle conditioning at its finest. The body is a full medium-weight, creamy and smooth. The carbonation foams easily and fully, and tingles very lightly afterwards but never prickles. And the head lasts long enough to tangibly pass by your lips. Really, really great feel. A dry finish, slightly chalky.

Overall (4.25): This is definitely an above-average saison, no question there. It’s very subtle at many turns, but still full in character—which is especially evident in the nose and feel. It’s maybe most subtle, in a lot of ways, on the palate. Not for lack of flavor or character, but in the very understated interplay of its different elements. Overall, very well done.

***Batch #11***

Poured from a 375ml bottle.

Quite a white head atop a light gold body but doesn`t really stick around and doesn`t have the legs like a saison should. Smell has fruit syrup and characteristics of yeast. Flavor is very crisp, peaches up front but ends abruptly with a dry end and no lingering flavors. Average saison i found.

I had this beer as part of a ten course meal at clios in Boston.

Pours a great old gold body and a fluffy white head

Smells floral with some spice

Perfect balance of yeast hop and malt.

Well carbonated

This beer was part of a great culinary experience. We had everything from wagi steak to sea urchin and flavors that were sour, sweet, salty and bitter. This beer paired well with all of those dishes. My food would not have tasted the same without this beer . One of the best food beers I've ever had

On-tap at the Sierra Grille, Northampton, MA a few days back. Full notes taken to phone while consuming.

A- Pale golden body from the tap to an 8oz tumbler with plenty of haze. Small white head to half a finger down to a frothy ring. Poor retention but moderate spotty lace.

S- Lemon zesty Saison yeast off the top hinting at a tartness along with peppery spice and herbal tones beyond that. Bread and crusty pale malts.

T- Peppery sage spiciness builds up more here but the main element is a lemon oily zesty tartness. Herbal and floral hints with just a hint of pale grains. Also grassy spicy hops round kt out but the yeast shines.

MF- Light-medium bodied with a slick, lightly silky body. Carbonation is just a sliver below medium for the style with a hint of bitter tarts in the finish.

For a beer made with just Pils malt and Saaz hops this exhibits quite a bit of flavor. The zesty tart lemon really shines above the mild grains and hops. The body could use just a bit more texture but the flavor is great.

375ml bottle purchased as a single from Yankee Spirits, Sturbridge, MA. Corked and caged, Batch 004.

Poured into a Harpoon LE tulip, formed a 2 1/2" meringuey off-white head over the cloudy golden amber brew. Head snocones way above the rim before slowly dwindling, with tons of chunky lacing. Aroma is spices and yeasty citrus.

Taste is sweet with yeast spicing to start, citrus in the middle, and a lightly bitter close. Mouthfeel is creamy smooth, and drinkability is great. Liking this one.

Note: Batch #016

A: Pours a borderline hazy/cloudy straw yellow in color with a moderate amount of fine visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and faint yellow highlights. The beer has a two finger tall dense foamy bright white head that slowly reduces to a very thick film covering the entire surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of bready malts, yeast, and just a hint of grassy/spicy hops.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate aroma of bready malts. That is followed by light flavors of yeast and light to moderate flavors of grassy/spicy hops which imparts a light amount of bitterness in the finish.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light amounts of dryness in the finish.

O: Really enjoyable, tastes and smells like a hybrid of a saison and a pilsener which is a little unusual but really work well. Easy to drink and refreshing. Definitely worth grabbing again.

Poured from the bottle a lightly hazy lemon-gold with one finger of thin white head. Wet lacing left behind.

Aroma of lemon, herbal notes, candy sugar and pilsner malts.

The taste and aroma were very much in sync with the lemon, herbal notes, candy sugar, pilsner malts along with a bit of saltine cracker and fresh earth.

Medium bodied and quite dry with a moderate carbonation.

A very nice Saison from the folks at Mystic.

Reviewed this with Batch 002 as Batch 001 may have been an old or bad bottle. it was fairly sweet and Belgian candi like with decent amount of esters, not a good representation of this beer. So here is my redo with Batch 002, much better.

Big fluffy 1.5 finger head fades semi slowly with decent lacing, over mostly clear tan honey orange color.

Nose belgian malts, golden malts, little wheat and pilsner toasty malt, little spicy hop with little grassy addition, fairly decent amount of citrus and a hint of stone fruit and esters.

Taste is similar, light Belgian malts with what wants to be booze but never really comes on, belgian golden malts, fair amount of pilsner malt flavors and a little wheat like, and touch grainy, touch farmhouse dry flavor but not much. Some citrus and hint of esters. Then spicy hops, fairly bitter with a strong spicy and grassy hop . The bitterness ramps and gets quite spicy and chewy almost with long lingering spicy hop bitterness, semi dry finish, little more lingering pilsner toasty malt and light esters.

Mouth is med bodied, lots of carb.

Overall not bad. Much more saison like than the last batch, but still not enough of the dry toasty pilsner malt and def not enough farmhouse funk for my style, but a tasty beer with nice malts. Nice hop addition, and good grainy malts overall, a bit more on the fruits than I wanted as well.

Thanks to cbeer88 for this bottle!

Reviewed blind as part of Blind BIF 7. This stuff pours a hazy golden straw topped by a couple fingers of white foam. The nose comprises lemon zest, coriander, earthy greens, and spicy Belgian yeast. The taste brings in more of the same, though with some added zing in the spice department and a slightly bitterer lemon character. The body is a light medium, with a moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, a nice saison, one that definitely is driven by the house yeast. Good times.

From Batch 1.

A: Two-finger head, bright white. Lots of foam, strong lacing. Beer itself is a pleasing blonde/ gold color.

S: I could smell the alcohol from across the room when my husband first opened it. When smelling up close, the alcohol is there for sure, but it isn't the only note. A mildly spicy scent with some wheat as well.

T: Lighter in flavor than I expected, but still complex. It continues to develop as you drink it. Somewhat sweet, with a citrusy undertone (maybe grapefruit?).

M: Quite bubbly, as I would expect from a corked beer. 4.0

O: A very enjoyable beer. Not much like other saisons I've had-- the spice is more muted, and alcohol flavor more pronounced. Delicious overall, you can tell that they put a lot of effort into this beer.

Can't get much of a nose on this one. Color is hazy hay yellow. Taste is simple but terrific. Nice maltiness with slight hop and peppery, spicy finish from the Mystic yeast. Great stuff. Probably even better a bit colder and with the weather a bit hotter. Recommended.

The beer pours a pale yellow with a cloudy body full of floating chunks. The beer pours with a mammoth head of tiny egg-shell white bubbles that stay there and do not leave, creating a bump out of my glass. They are still there and it has been ten minutes… There is also a maelstrom of bubbles pumping up to the head like a swarm of bees to honey. On the nose, the beer smells lightly of sweet funk with big grassy and spicy hop notes. The sweet fruit esters in the nose move from light citric orange into more pineapple-like notes. Very light bread funk sits below the other smells and gives the beer a faint lemon-butter touch. Though this may be because I just had mimosas this morning, my initial whiff of the beer keeps reminding me of the orange citrus and yeast funk of a mimosa, from that initial sniff this beer then blossoms into awesome complexity. On the tongue, the beer tastes nicely balanced with a light sweet funk that quickly dries into grassy bitters and a light citric and funky acidity. In flavor the beer begins as crisp light bread malt but then blossoms with grassy bitters and funky saison touches of lemon bread, hay, and even a touch of pineapple and orange juice. The finish is lemon-buttered bread with a touch of hay, and the aftertaste is soft with lovely bitter hay and light bread notes. On the mouth, the beer feels on the light side of medium with an effervescent carbonation that keeps the beer in check, and a lovely creaminess is also felt in the carbonation. The mouth is left slightly tingly from the carbonation, with a nice dryness. Overall, this is a great saison, and a terrific example of what a yeast can do to a beer. I love the complexity of the esters and the lovely drinkability of this beer. This is a great summer beer. It’s a little too heavy to knock back, but that is fine by me. This beer is fantastic and you should try it. Another success by Mystic, the Wizards of Yeast!

Pours a hazy golden lemon color with a huge fluffy white head that persists forever and leaves lots of lace on the way down. Smells of lemon and pepper with a spicy edge. Belgian yeasty phenols and a hint of earthy spicy hops. Sweet and malty flavor with hints of bread caramel and lemon. The flavor has hints of yeasty and spicy but not as much as the nose lead me to believe. Medium body with a spirited level of carbonation and a sweet crisp mouthfeel. That's a nice saison right there. Its sweet with a bit of tart and a bit of spice but it all works together really well. This has been my favorite so far from the Mystic Saison Brewery.

Served in a 22 oz sniffer glass out of a Mystic 25.4 oz bottle at 40 degrees.

A - Light tangerine orange hue with a foamy white head with light retention, pale unfiltered body with sediment suspended in the drink rather than sinking to the bottom.

S - Smells delicious with an immediate hit of fruity yeast followed by a strong scent of chardonnay. Follows up with a flowery saison and pilsner malt smell.

T - Strong pilsner taste up front that changes into a plum-filled belgian farmhouse saison before you even take your lips off the glass. The bubbles in this one guide the smells and transform them into flavors like ginger and plum. Easy drinker, you could imagine it would be less than it's 6.5% alcohol. Exhaling the beer you get a strong hop taste in the back of your mouth with pleasant light bitterness.

M - Renaud is refermented in the bottle so it is very bubbly, and the bubbles make this beer swish around your mouth without effort. It is a bit light, but because of the bubbles and non-filtration it doesn't come across as watery.

O - This is an easy drinking, bubbly saison that works for any time of day. It is a farmhouse beer but the yeast is mild and fruity and doesn't care a harsh Belgian taste/odor.

Bottle from Julio's. Batch

Pouring a crystal clear light gold, this beer is capped with a dense, thick white head that leaves a ton of lacing. The nose is excellent. Bright, delicate and fruity, there's a blend of pear, white grape, black pepper, straw, mild bubblegum, banana, and a touch of mace? Very fresh. There's some honey as well. A faint aroma of oxidized pale malt is present as well. Excellent.

The palate opens with a blend of orange blossom honey, sweet almond, pear, and a blend off spices - cloves, pepper, a touch of mace- and some straw. Hop bitterness is on the low side, though flavor notes of citrus and earth are noticeable. A more noticeable bitterness would have been great as it would add some acidity that would tie all the flavors together; instead this feels just a little flabby. Medium light in body with moderate carbonation, this beer has a long but delicate finish with flavors of honey, pear and white pepper. Very nice stuff, fun to drink and to deconstruct.

Fueled by rustic necessity, organic origins and a beautiful display of artistry; Europe's low-land farmhouses have developed a style of beer with a lot of leeway, charm, personality and grit. Its rare to see this alignments of flavors, aromas and textures outside of southern Belgium and northern France but Mystic Brewers have done just that.

Beautifully bright and with a lovely arid head, the beer carries a full-on champagne appearance as its bubble stream to build a rich cottony lather. Aromas pull from the fray and entice the nose with its earthen perfume. Dry citrus leads with orange, lemon and an orchard blossom softness. Spicy with peppercorn, fresh-cut grass and herb balance the fruit and fauna while all play out over a soft and bready core.

High effervescence lightens the taste as the beer is lifted from the tongue to usher in a quick finish. While the bulk of taste is more easily identified in aftertaste, the middle is alive with musty-dry citrus, dehydrated apple and apricot and a vinous white grape acidity. Grassy hops play out late and join with the ale's natural spiciness. Fresh-grated white pepper, straw and cumin round out the ale's dryly sweet balance.

Keeping with the ale's racing carbonation, a sharp carbonic bite assists hops and spices and gives the ale a decidedly spice-forward finish. Its quick aftertaste is of wheat and wine while peppery warmth extend slightly onward.
