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.

I wish more breweries made saisons, especially as part of their year-round offerings. With Heavy Seas only offering theirs in mix-packs this year, I was excited to see this on tap.

Appearance: Light, golden body, with a fairly diffused head.

Smell: spicy, slightly tart.

Taste: crisp and tart.

Mouthfeel: light.

Overall: My high rating might be mainly because I really like the style; that said, theirs is quite good, and I wish it were available in my area. I also appreciate they they are making a saison as part of their year-round offerings-- it's a very accessible beer in terms of taste, but not readily available to many drinkers.

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!

Just a good beer all around, no complaints

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.

A-Deep, golden brown color with an orange hue. Pours with a bright white head with poor retention. No lacing.

S-Sweet apples and a spicy fruit smell.

T-Cinnamon and coriander with a spicy fruit bite. Tastes like tart apple cider.

MF-Crisp bite with a smooth finish

O-A very good saison. I'm probably partial because I'm from AL, but it is a very good beer with distinguished notes of fruit and spice. I'm not a huge fan of the style, but this was a good saison.
