Saison De LenteSaison De Lente

Brewed by:
The Bruery
California, United States

Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

Availability: Spring

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our Spring Saison is light blonde in color with a fresh hoppiness and a wild and rustic Brettanomyces character. Lighter in color and alcohol than our Saison Rue, yet equally complex in its own way.

The wild yeast in Saison de Lente will continue to dry it out over time, giving a slightly more mature character to vintage bottles. Perfect for warmer weather picnics and Spring celebrations.

Bottle from Total Wine in Tampa. From notes.

A - Poured cloudy dark orange. Yeast chunks floating around in the body. Fluffy 2 finger white head with great retention at a full finger and great chunks of lace.

S - Strong Brett. Some orange, hops, and wheat.

T - Bretty again with sweet spice and a little hop.

M - Good carbonation, medium body. Brett yeast and wheaty finish.

O/D - A neat saison. Good Brett element. Easy to drink and tasty. I expected a bit more, but enjoyed it nonetheless. Brett didn't dominate and was a nice compliment.

Appearance: It has a nice hazy golden/yellow color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately and leaves some lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of Belgian yeast, lemon, citrus, peppery spices and some grassiness.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some lemon, a nice grassiness, a slight earthiness, light citrus, peppery spices, and Belgian yeast.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a very nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with great flavors and aromas.
