Notes / Commercial Description:
Saison Renaud exemplifies a modern take on the traditional farmhouse ale. Made with just pilsner malt and Saaz hops, this recipe is made to truly let the assertiveness of our house yeast shine. Presenting a clean and crisp body, the spicy and fruity esters of the yeast prevail over a slight earthy bitterness from the Saaz.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Split a 750 ml of batch one. Poured into a duvel glass

A: pours a nice straw hazed golden with a finger and a half of white head that sticks around for a bit and leavs a bit of lacing.

S: sweet honey, citrus, and belgian yeast barnyard earthyness, hint of bannana and sweet bubblegum.

T: much like the nose, citrus, with a bit of earthy grassy hops, over a dry backbone with a touch of bubblegum sweetness on the end, the yeast deffinatly adds a that slight funk detected in the nose, with a touch of banna, and as mentioned a kinda sweet bubblegum kick on the end.

M: light/medium body with medium tight carbonation. Dry bodied, aside from the sweetness sat the end, touch of
Clove in the aftertaste.

O: I'm not a huge fan of saisons, this is probably a very good one if you are, everything is very well balanced and works very well together, but this is just not my cup of tea.

Mystic Brewery "Saison Renaud ale"
750 ml brown glass bottle, corked and caged; "Batch Number: 015"
$15.50 @ Stinky Brklyn, 215 Smith Street, Brooklyn, NY

Mystic's Saison Renaud pours a cloudy yellow-orange body that teems with very-fine streams of bubbles steadily rising towards its creamy white cap. Perhaps because of those bubbles, the head holds remarkably well.

In the aroma chalky yeast and citrus pith combine over a soft fruitiness that suggests apricot and peach.

The fruitiness carries over into the flavor. It's broad, somewhat tart, and displays apple, apricot, tangerine, peach, plum, pear, green banana, papaya, and suggestions of red berries and black cherry. Malt is present as well, offering a sweetish bed of straw and a dollop of honey for the fruits to play on, both counterbalanced by a touch of black pepper and delicate spiciness. As it warms it opens up, softening the tartish note as well as the chalky-pithy note, and adding a bit of floral character into the mix. It's moderately bitter but still finishes fairly dry with some residual mineralish yeasty character and dull spice adding a spot of assistance. Let it linger long enough and it becomes grassy, leafy, and subtly earthy.

It's really a remarkable ale in that it delivers such a balanced and rounded complexity with all of the components fitting so nicely together, while remaining very ethereal. There's a malt presence, but it's not malty; the yeast characteristics are clear, yet you still have to look; and it's sweetish but somehow dry at the very same time.

One of the most impressive beers I've had in a long time! This, my friends, is well worth seeking out!!!
