Poured from a Bomber into a pint glass. Aroma- Has a nice yeasty/bread aroma Appearance- This beer pours a murky honey color with a thick white head Taste- Has a Bread flavor that transitions into fruit (pear) Palate- This is a medium bodied beer with moderate to heavy carbonation. Overall- A really enjoyable beer, rather hard to find even in Georgia but if you see it I would give it a try

No label information. Saison Reprieve French-Style Ale is brewed in the style of a Saison ale, available as a spring/summer seasonal in 22 oz. bottles or on draft.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottles to a tulip glass. Served above 57º Fahrenheit.

(Appearance) This beer is easily excited from the outset and foams up easily upon opening and pouring. The beer pours a frothy foam head of a pearl-white color over a medium amber body with mild haziness and plentiful spritely carbonation. Retention is very good and lacing is medium-thick and patchy. 3.75

(Smell) Wheat and pilsner malts round the body with a moderate sweetness, a light hop bitterness with grassy and floral notes, and a touch of white pepper and coriander spice round out the nose. The yeast profile is fairly tame from what I gather and contributes to smoothening out the spiciness and building a fruit profile of apple and white grape. The potency is moderate. 3.5

(Taste) Dry pilsner malts with a touch of wheat body and a generous coriander spiciness on the end. Accentuated by a grassy hop with a mild bitterness. The yeast profile comes across fairly simple, with a little bit of cider fruit and some added spiciness but little to no funk keeps things clean and simple, which is completely fine by me for a beer that sits at the relaxed edge of the saison flavor scale. 3.75

(Mouthfeel) The texture is medium chewy, smooth and moderate dry. Carbonation generates a medium spritely buzz on the tongue for a moderate crispness. The body is medium+ for the style, medium overall. Balance is very slightly spicy, bitter and acidic over sweet. Alcohol presence is very mild to none, there are no discernible off flavors. 3.75

(Overall) Reprieve sizes up as a decent saison with an enjoyable malt base, a tame level of hoppiness and a mild but enjoyable yeast profile that, while simple, keeps things decidedly Saison about this beer. It holds up firmly until the fall season, so its worth a shot if you can nab one on a markdown deal. Hopefully, in the near future, Reprieve will follow suit alongside its year round beers, making a transition to the far more session-worthy and bargain priced 12 oz. 6 packs. 3.75
