Perennial Artisan Ales Foeder Saison

What the brewers say

“Mixed-fermentation foeder-aged saison.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Moderate apricot fruity esters with medium Brett tartness. Some sour mash/kettle sour dirty funk creeps through as it warms up a bit. Nice fruit notes (passion fruit), and the Brett contributes apricot and peach notes up front, with just a hint of Pilsner malt sweetness.”

Flavor: “Moderate apricot and pear notes with a mild Brett note toward the end of the sip that sticks around after the taste and coats the tongue. Light on the spices with a medium amount of sweetness right at the end of the sip. Orange and vanilla up front followed by a pleasant lemon/citrus tartness. Mostly dry finish accentuates the tartness.”

Overall: “Very estery up front with big apricot, orange, and pear notes in the flavor. Very well-executed saison that focuses squarely on the stone-fruit contributions of Brett, producing a beer that tastes and smells like it has been aged with peaches or apricots. Like biting into an orange creamsicle. It lacks a bit of the complexity of the best Brett saisons but still very well done.”
