6/9/17 - On tap at Chéri in Philadelphia Arts Guild. From a bottle dated 6/2016 poured into a globe shaped glass. Reddish rust color with slight white head. No lacing. Refreshing sour raspberry aroma and taste while sitting outside on a sunny day. Very tasty and interesting flavors, however I only had time for one.

FROM THE BREWERY: The Raspberry Saison is obtained by adding fermented raspberry juice, until complete maturation. Far from making the beer syrupy and sticky, the raspberry sinks elegantly into the fruity of the beer, and brings a touch of acidity that pleasantly raises the whole. Aperitif beer par excellence, sparkling and fresh, the Raspberry Season
also has its place at the table, for example with a salad with duck breast, accompanied by desserts with peaches or melon, or with
dark chocolate .

11.2oz. bottle

Pours cloudy hazy amber orange with a thin off-white foam head. Smells like oak, tart funky raspberries, with earthy grassy pine. Tastes like tart funky raspberries, oak, with earthy grassy pine. Feels medium bodied, creamy and thick with moderate high carbonation. Overall a real nice tart raspberry saison.

Appearance: Pours hazy and pink, with just the tiniest of heads that fades away quickly; minimal lacing

Smell: Tart raspberry and a hint of barnyard funk and bread

Taste: The funk and raspberry tones jut forward with peppery yeast and wheat bread flavors building through the middle; tart and fruity, with a slight amount of funk through the finish

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with low carbonation

Overall: The fruit is deftly handled and combines nicely with the Brett and Saison yeast strains here; mouthfeel was a bit flabby, however

Basically a very nice blonde brett with a hint of natural raspberry. My bottle was missing a few ounces so I thought it might be flat. I was surprised when it popped upon opening. I got another surprise at the nasty grime on the inside of the cap and rim of the bottle. I wiped most of it away and the beer seems about unaffected. Almost no raspberry in aroma..

From a 750ml split this past weekend.

A really nice hazy pink pour with lots of foam. Big mix of tart and sweet raspberries, farmy wheat straw slowly gets taken over by lactic sourness/semi-funky gueuzeness and oak. Some red grape but I don't quite get a wine feel here. More like funky raspberry lemonade. Very foamy champagne-esque feel with a dry finish.

Raspberries rule.

Thanks big ROBD. Full review to iPad a few nights back.

A- Cloudy to murky deep golden brew from the 750ml to toe tulips. Tall foamy white cap to over to fingers with decent retention. Fat puffy ring remains but lace is spotty and somewhat rare.

S- Raspberries, funk and Saison yeast pretty much all in equal amounts. Musty red fruits, funky horsey band aid, tart citrus acids and pale wine grapes.

T- Funky throughout with musty horse spunk preceding the huge raspberries. Tart and earthy berries layered onto wet pale oak and spicy peppery Saison yeast. Funk seems to fade with time but never dies.

MF- Highly carbonated and foamy but very soft on the taste buds overall. Tartness both acetic and lactic cascades off the palate slowly after each sip ends.

A great mix of authentic raspberry fruits and funky Saison. Lemon lactic acid brings it all together splendidly.
