What the brewers say

“Our interpretation of this classic French-style saison is naturally fermented at a higher temperature, which creates more citrus hops character and a stronger, earthier aroma of spice than most traditional saisons.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Prominent mix of yeast esters and phenolics with a touch of alcohol warmth. Strong overripe pear and apple esters, with a touch of floral and spicy peppercorn notes. A bit higher alcohol note, but this dissipates as it warms.”

Flavor: “Assertive combination of saison yeast flavors, similar to the aroma. The beer dries out quickly, despite a touch of sweetness up front, with a lingering bitterness. A through line of floral, herbal flavor is pleasant the first couple sips but distracting deeper in. Light tangerine and herbal with a bit of wet hay. The earthy spice character helps cut some of the sweetness and adds complexity.”

Overall: “A good display of saison flavors and what a saison yeast can provide. I really enjoyed how the spice notes and fruit sweetness blended together throughout the taste in this beer. More carbonation would make this beer even better.”
