a strange brew here, to dial up a classic rock reference this morning. French style country ale, was I naïve to think this was going to be a saison? it pours a surprising maple amber color, with only a little cloudiness, and a very short lived white head. it doesn't look or smell like any saison ive seen, instead emitting aromas of coppery toasted barley and an acidic wine like ester that must come from the yeast. the flavor isn't so abstract, its pretty much an amber ale on the malt front, sweeter, a tad dry, and caramel or toffee teasing. the yeast makes this interesting, but it doesn't totally work, green apple tartness, and a funny complexity that seems an accident, like the odd mix of smells in well used dishwater, rather than a meticulously honed fine ale. still, the final product doesn't taste bad at all, its just a style of beer I wasn't expecting, and I am not sure what it is, it seems quite far from the traditional biere de gardes of the world. it needed more carbonation, and the sweetness was an out of place last note. I did enjoy this beer in retrospect, but it was confusing and challenging to me at the same time. I will look for more from two brothers.
