Notes/Commercial Description:
Spring Street Saison is unlike anything you have tasted before. A refreshing traditional Belgian Farmhouse Ale, brewed with a special 3 malt blend, European hops and a historic farmhouse yeast blend from the Wallonia region of Belgium. SSS greets you with a slightly golden color, filled with a rich maltiness and a touch of fruity and spicy aromas and tastes that has a dry finish. It's one to truly fall in love with.

3.66/5  rDev -3.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

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.

Serving type: on-tap

3.76/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

On-tap at Regions Field in Birmingham.

A: Cloudy orange-amber body under a thin off-white head. No lace. Average at best.

S: Fruity, spicy, rich Saison aroma. Really straightforward yeastiness - fruity, tart, earthy. Good.

T: Follows the nose. Green apple, pear, and wheat bread. Fruity, toasty, and tart. Cleanly bitter aftertaste.

M: Medium body and lively carbonation. Great.

O: Really enjoyable Saison, but more fruity and less spicy than I generally prefer.

Cheers!
