Notes/Commercial Description:
Spring Street Saison is a Belgian style farmhouse ale. The Saison is our flagship brew that helped spawn the formation of Avondale Brewing Co. Our Saison is brewed with our proprietary house yeast, a 4 malt blend and traditional Slovenian hops. Our unique brewing process along with the combination of the finest ingredients creates a thirst quenching brew with no equal. True to style this unfiltered ale has a coppery golden color and rich malty backbone that creates a unique farmhouse brew. Flavors burst with tropical fruit that combine with hints of spicy and peppery notes that are derived from our house yeast. One sip and you will fall in love.

Appearance: Well-hazed, honey-toned brew with a white head.

Smell: A sweet-smelling, effusively fruity scent of chopped fruits tossed with cooking, bubbly sugar, blended spices, bready malts, and a hint of alcohol.

Taste: Pale, bready maltiness given a good glug of blonde sweet syrup. Moderate sweetness. Vibrantly fruity, with sugar-n-spice baked apples, tangy ripe orchard peach, light banana, and green grape. Low hop character, light bitterness. Lightly phenolic spiciness helps to temper the sweetness somewhat, along with the subs and alcohol, though the beer still finishes on the sweet side.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with a minor stickiness to the mouthfeel. Medium carbonation.

Overall: While I do typically prefer the paler, drier saisons, this isn't exactly your typical saison.
