not super impressed with this one, although i think its drinking a bit young, especially in terms of the under developed brett character, and much like some other perennial beers, this will likey improve radically with a little age. a spelt based brett saison type, murky and muted dull dried leaf color, with an extremely short lived inch of off white head. the beer settles to look almost flat, and has a lot of cloudiness. it smells and tastes about the same, more saison than brett to this thing, and the spelt gives it just a bit more body and prominent grain flavor, but its in low enough proportion to not yet be spicy in the finish or intensely bitter and earthy. its just all balanced out pretty well. my onl real critique is lack of brett character, which i hope will develop in time. there is some saison yeast type esters going on, and a clean finish for such a grain heavy brew. it could really use more carbonation, which may come along with the brett maturity, it usually does. good beer, especially for 10 bucks, probably worth picking up another and laying it down awhile.

Bought a bottle of Regalia at the Wine Harvest in Potomac Park, Potomac, MD on the recommendation of one of the clerks there. I've had one of Perennial's saisons before and was very impressed. Let's see how this one is. 750 mL bottle, dated 4/2014, into my Dogfish Head snifter.

Appearance (3.5/5): A brilliant burnt orange with a minimal white head that disappointingly dissipates quickly. Not much in the way of alcohol legs or lacing. The great color makes up for these other, more minor, shortcomings.

Smell (4/5): Yeast gives some grassy, lemongrass, herbal phenolic notes. Lots of tropical fruit and sweet citrus, namely orange and mango-like notes, making this one very unusual for a saison. .Juicy. Brett is also apparent in the nose and does a great job meshing with the other flavors, accenting them and at times accentuating them.

Taste (4.25/5): tart Brett notes in the front--lemon, grass, a general funk. Regalia comes back to its saison roots in the middle with a moderate bitterness, though the hop character leans strongly toward tropical fruit flavors–peach, mango, nectarine, sweet orange.. A very nice dry finish in which the yeast and phenolic, herbal flavors are the stars. Tartness of brett has faded by this point to the background. Complex and very interesting. I disagree with some of the other reviewers that this is a disjointed beer in terms of flavor profile. I quite enjoy the flow of flavors from tart to fruity hops and malt to dry, yeasty and phenolic. It works very well.

Mouthfeel (4.25/5): Vigorous (nearly too much) carbonation, medium-light body, very drinkable despite its high ABV. Excellent dryness in the finish that provides a nice counterpunch to juicy hops.

Overall: This is a very interesting interpretation of the saison style by Perennial. I particularly like how the Brett complements the herbal yeast and juicy/sweet hops and malt. Complexity from flavor to feel. Good stuff!
