Inspired by the fields of Provence, this Saison is brewed with a bounty of fresh herbs to give it a floral nose and a unique, dry spice.

Brewed with lavender, marjoram, and bay leaves

Bottled 5/2/16; drank 7/14/16 @ the Yarchives.

See-through orange appearance; champagne bubbles throughout.

A rough pour yielded a nice eggshell head; frothy lace.

Fresh flowers, cinnamon, caramel & banana notes in the nose.

Medium mouthfeel.

Dry cinnamon & fresh flower flavors up front; banana & cream notes on the finish. Interesting & complex for the style; I'd have another...

The appearance was slightly burnt orange color with a decent transparency about it. Carbonation runs upward in the center (due to the tulip, I get it). Rimmed lacing clings to the sides and then eventually slides into the beer. The smell starts off more dried florally sweet, light grape must, bready yeast. More of the "lavender" shows up as it warms. The taste follows through in the previously mentioned aromas - sweet and bready. Florally sweet in the aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium in body with a nice sessionability about it. Carbonation runs light, fairly decent stickiness, but not cloying. Overall, saison or vegetable/spice/herbal beer? I think saison, all of the normal qualities of one seem to come out and I’d have this again.

Biere de Provence pours a hazy copper
Color with no head. Lots of fresh natural lavender aroma. Taste is creamy, big spice hints of lavender. Good body and feel. Overall big flavors but mellow lavender makes it drinkable.
