What the brewers say

“Colette is our homage to the saisons that Belgian farmworkers have enjoyed for centuries. Brewed with barley, wheat, and rice and fermented at high temperatures with a special blend of four different yeast strains, Colette is fruity and slightly tart, with a dry finish that makes it that rarest of treats—a beer as refreshing as it is complex.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Fruity and malty, wheaty sweetness balanced with some spicy, peppery aromas. Nice lemon and banana. Wonderfully floral and fruity hops character. A touch of phenols.”

Flavor: “Moderate malty sweetness and fruity lemon character. Finish has some hops bitterness but is still sweet. Amazing hops flavor. Some oxidized cardboard flavors. Very sweet. Warming but not hot.”

Overall: “A tasty beer, but could use more hops character to round it out. Middle of the road and somewhat muted. Slightly too sweet, but very good. Love the hops.”
