650ml bottle, batch 63, poured into a Begyle snifter.

The beer pours a golden apricot color, light haziness with a finger or so of bubbly white head that has nice retention and leaves a few spots of lace behind. The aroma is pleasant, sweet peach, light honey and plenty of pale grain, a bit of mustiness and some peppercorn spice. The flavors are similar, less peach but still some fruit sweetness, honey and pale grain, light yeasty must, peppercorn, coriander, but some strong alcohol at the back end, rather unfortunate as the beer is marked as 7.2% on the label. The mouthfeel is okay, carbonation is nice, but it doesn't coat that well and finishes somewhat meekly.


Verdict: A pretty nice saison from Begyle, the fruit is showcased nicely while still keeping true to the saison style. That being said, it's a rather average saison without a ton of depth and funkiness, neither tart nor rustic, a bit on the sweeter end. Hopefully this is just the starting point for Begyle, they are up to some good stuff.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Poured in a New Glarus flute

A) Hazy orange color, peach skin, lots of sediment at the bottom of the bottle, thankfully not too much in the beer. Thick 3 finger head and lots of lacing.

S) very estery, peach, apricot, little bubble gum and honey.

T) Sweet candy, skittles, peach, honey, and soy sauce after taste or orange chicken after taste very weird and unpleasant, but it went away as it went down.

M) THick like honey water or melted butter, medium carbonation.

O) Well I expected a lot more from this beer. It has its positives such aroma and apperance. There is work to be done with the flavor that soy sauce taste lost me from giving it a higher rating. I think it's because of the Saison yeast they use giving an off flavor due to temperature control or too cold of temp. Hopefully next time it wont have this quality.

On tap at the Green Lady, quick review from written notes.

Hazy gold orange body, some lasting coverage and lots of patchy lace and an unbroken surface skim.

Yeasty aroma, light earthy spice is present, though it comes across pretty basic and dull.

Acrid taste and astringent feel, it's fairly harsh and unbalanced. The yeast is strange, there's an overpowering earthy dirt quality to the taste. Just a messy clash of jarring hops and Belgian yeast. A little bit of honey taste in the aftertaste, but that doesn't redeem it. This is far from a "classic saison" that the description advertised, will avoid this if they bottle it.
