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.

Great american style saison. Little sweetness stands perfectly with the slight mustyness of the saison yeast. Very refreshing with little to no hint at the moderately high abv.

Really good beer. It's got the characteristics, but would like even more sour and "wild" taste from it. Really
solid smell and good mouthfeel. Earthy and yeast characteristics.

I had this particular beer a few months ago on tap at JClyde. It's appearance is a very rich goldenrod with a slight bit of haze that makes it just barely opaque. The smell is the one part of this beer that will catch you off guard, as it does not really fit the taste of the beer whatsoever. That aside, once you're use to it, it is a very pleasant and welcoming aroma. The taste is the best part. It has the smoothness and crispness of your favorite wheat beer, but it has the extra zing of white pepper and citrus that really makes this beer unique. Also of note that this beer is particularly dry for a Saison, but the twist of the classic style is refreshing given that you allow it to be. In my opinion, i would save this beer for late spring and on through the summer until the beginning days of fall. As much as i like this beer, it begins to be a bit light for my tastes as the temperature drops. Overall, I would say that the Spring Street Saison is above average and something unique that is most definitely worth trying should the opportunity present itself.
