BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Two Roads Brewing Company
Connecticut, United States

Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.80%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
A traditional farmhouse ale made with a very expressive yeast strain that contributes an array of tropical fruit, spice flavors and aromatics. Brewed with a variety of harvest grains including barley, wheat, oats and rye as was likely the case with farmhouse brewers of yore. The result is a complex, refreshing and distinctive example of this esoteric style. Intensely fruity (passion fruit, pineapple, mango, lychee), slightly spicy (clove, white pepper).

The smell is typical saison with some yeast, spice, and tart fruit. Taste is much the same. Overall it feels a bit thin but I would expect that with only 4.8 abv. Not bad for a light easy drinker. Honestly this is priobably a more accurate representation of the style than 75% of the saisons you commonly see. yb

Thin head, less than a finger, airy, bright white color, weak retention, sizzles off quickly, close to no stickiness in the lacing as well. There’s a very mild gauzy quality to the liquid which turns not impair its transparency but does add to a warm glow, a washed out orange rust water hue, large number of bigger bubbles fill the glass from side to side. The nose begins with a swipe of hard sourdough pretzels, salt, white pepper, and clove, pulped and dried lemons, has a lot of punch to it, might be easy to miss the apricot fruit and floral underpinnings, baseball card bubblegum, really nice staying power in the nostrils. Medium-bodied, it is dry and highly carbonated which gives it presence and length. Plenty of clove, nutmeg, pepper and more sour rye breadiness with an element of damp metallic earth and charred campfire wood. The florality here does a good job of filling out the mid-palate. however, the white pit fruit does not click, at times you get more banana. The citrus seems to take a step back in favor of more autumnal leafiness. The dryness keeps the finish restrained and succinct, tingly. Styled for the dinner table, not out to create a fireworks show in your mouth.

-duvel chalice. Btld 04.17.15. Consumed 10.12.15.

A: An every growing dull white head mushrooms breaching the rim, spawning over a light, tawny orange body of translucent quality. A heavy, explosive rage of effervesce is rapid and glass consuming. Head retention is full lasting with a soapy, splashy calling card on the vessel.

S: Musty basement and oranges on the nose, dry straw with a moderate level of awareness.

T: Musty orange, musty fruit of honey dew, sweet apricot, and apples. Banana yeastiness, citrus, grapes, tint of watermelon and wheat. Juicy lemon citrus tang followed by a hint of dry grapefruit peel and peppery flair on the finish.

M: Very crisp mouthful, strong carbonation presence, medium body, creamy feel, tart and peppery warmth.

O: Fruity, funky, good complexity, with a nice fullness. Sharp carbonation. very good.

12 oz bottle. Pours hazy light golden with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of funky yeast, bready malt, and spices. Body is medium and crisp. Funky yeast, wheat malt, herbal hops and spices fill the mouth. Finish is long and spicy. Nice session brew.

pours golden with some haze to it, not crystal clear. with a solid white head.

smells like bubblegum! very sweet

tastes sweet but is also spicey, very nice combination. finishes with a weird combination of spice/sweet.

very smooth, goes down easy and especially at 4.8% it's very drinkable.

very good saison. has great flavor to it. smells very sweet but tastes sweet and spicey.
