750 mL bottle courtesy of fthomasl pours a hazed gold color with a bright white head that is fluffy and bright.

Nose is definitely chamomile...and some lemony yeast/hops and tangy florals. Nice nose.

Taste shows plenty of spices, the chamomile is big and I suspect there might be some other spices at work here...maybe orange peel? Peppery yeast and some thick malts...not as crisp as many a saison, but its not too bad. Ive used chamomile in homebrew before and it is tough to not use too much...deft use of chamomile here.

i am really high on perennial right now, and for a guy who has gone t just about every brewery in the greater st Louis area, I have somehow missed this one. I think their beers are in the state, but I just got a recent delivery from a good friend. thanks phil. brewed with chamomile flowers, lovely. the color is much lighter and clearer than expected, with an inch of pure white bubbly head that doesn't last too long. a nose of French saison yeast that echoes my homebrew perfectly. almost wine-like, cidery, not my favorite saison strain, but it works with the intense bitterness of the flowers. not as springtime as the label hints at in terms of flavor. its simply a balanced saison with the hops being replaced by the flowers as a bittering agent. not a real floral beer other than that. clean and refreshing, but slightly odd from what may be a slight overdose of yeast. great carbonation and a super clean finish for the style, light and drinkable at only 5% abv. perennial has got some really cool beers out right now, and while this may not be their most adventurous, it is certainly a cleverly dreamt up and expertly pulled off beverage.
