4.02/5  rDev +7.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a clear amber color with a couple of inches of foam that deliver a respectable amount of lacing

Smell: Caramel malt, with a peppery/herbal aspect

Taste: Caramel malt, up front, with a spicy herbal character that develops, in the middle; after the swallow, there is a bit of the farmhouse in the profile, though the overall effect is more of a spicy/herbal amber

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Had this with a crawfish boil and it is a terrific pairing as the malt and the peppery phenols pair nicely with the spices that are added to the boil

22oz brown bomber with no freshness date.

Brilliant brassy hue, very bubbly with a decent lacing. Smells spicy with green peppercorn, dried hay & medicinal phenols. Nice crisp pop, moderate size body and pretty smooth. Very biscuity, faint lemon, grassy, mildly astringent, earthy hops, gummy, spicy grain, peppery alcohol, dried apricots. Finish nearly all the way dry, kiss of maltiness in the end.

Unique with very bold complexities thrown down on my palate. I can completely see how you'd want to pair this with a crawfish boil.

Slightly above average saison that hits all of the expected notes. Taste is lemon, honeydew melon, and light grass. Above average, but there are others I prefer in the style.

This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a hazy copper to burnt orange color. A slim white foamy head wrapped around the top of the glass. A moderate sticky foamy lacing clings nicely around the glass. The smell starts off with some sweet apples and sour apples. A nice bready/yeastiness slides in to balance. There is some light citrusy notes to this as well. The taste was moderately sweet with a dried spicy connotation to it which ends up reminiscing in the aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation runs light. Once again, its pretty dry on my tongue. Overall, not a bad saison, but I haven’t had Southern styled crawfish in years, so I wouldn’t know how well, this really would pair. By itself, I might have this again.

Pours out like a light pale ale with a thin head. Smell is strong of herbal, floral hops with some caramel backing. Not much yeast presence. A little bit of diacetyl? Taste is about the same. Yeast is barely there. Some caramel malt sweetness is apparent. This reminds me more of what you'd think of as a biere de garde as it is more malt and hop forwarded than yeast forwarded. Kind of toasty in the finish. Mouthfeel could use a little more punch. Overall this isn't that bad. Ridiculous label.

Looks as though this is the first beer bottled at Bayou Teches actual brewery, as opposed to being brewed at Lazy Magnolia. nice!

Pours clear, dark golden, bright white head. Little lace. Big biscuit notes, toffee, nutty, herbal, spicy. Unique, but highly drinkable. Herbal spicy Belgian yeast notes, bitter, light bready and start biscuit notes, nutty, and twangy. Carbonation is light, and light body. Slick, some oily texture.

It's uniquely good....plenty Saison qualities, but it branches on its own.

Bayou Teche Saison D’Ecrevisses has a thin, off-white head, and a very clear, brilliant golden appearance with some bubble streams and essentially no lacing left behind. But, later, when I swished the bottom of the bottle, it produced a thick, froathy head, with a heavy lacing sheen. The aroma is of rich, spicy malt, and maybe some sort of light, caramel candy. Taste is of the spicy, peppery rye malt, sweet and yeasty white bread, bread crust, and a good, hearty hop bitterness to back it up. Mouthfeel is light and watery, with a bit of slickness, and Bayou Teche Saison D’Ecrevisses finishes mostly dry, lively, and drinkable. Overall, this is a wonderful beer, and I hope you’ll get to try it!

Bayou Teche Brewery Saison D'ecrevisses

Appearance: solid amber, puffy head and a bit of lacing.

Smell: fermenting fruits and a barley backbone.

Taste: sour citrus and apple notes and a hint of barley in the backbone.

Mouthfeel: medium and sour with a pleasant smoothness.

Overall:
This would pair very well with boiled crawfish. I really wish I had some to go along with this brew. It is not the most complex, but one can find many fruits included inside. This would be great in a session.
