BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Avondale Brewing Co.
Alabama, United States | website

Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Spring Street Saison is a Belgian style farmhouse ale. The Saison is our flagship brew that helped spawn the formation of Avondale Brewing Co. Our Saison is brewed with our proprietary house yeast, a 4 malt blend and traditional Slovenian hops. Our unique brewing process along with the combination of the finest ingredients creates a thirst quenching brew with no equal. True to style this unfiltered ale has a coppery golden color and rich malty backbone that creates a unique farmhouse brew. Flavors burst with tropical fruit that combine with hints of spicy and peppery notes that are derived from our house yeast. One sip and you will fall in love.

Tasty. A bit sweet,but not overly. Wish Avondale did 6 packs as the bomber seems a bit expensive for my everyday choices.

served from tap into a pint glass at Pano e Vino in downtown Huntsville,AL

A: good color, one-finger light-colored head, no real lacing

S: real strong apple cider vinegar-like smell - though at first somebody slipped me a cider by accident. Not pleasant

T: taste made up for the smell though- pleasant ciderish flavor mixed in with spices and some hops. alcohol came through also,but not overwhelming. an enjoyable taste.

M: a lot of carbonation, good mouthfeel, not syrupy or cloying

O: This is a really enjoyable beer,even though the smell may catch you offguard. A good effort by Avondale.
