What the brewers say

“Les Saisons is a series of barrel-aged rustic ales that are fermented with Brettanomyces and saison yeast, then dry-hopped to give aromas of the season.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Light aroma with light tart note and a bit of peach. Stone fruit and malt sweetness up front. Peach, apricot, musty barnyard Brett funk. Very slight vanilla.”

Flavor: “Moderate malt sweetness with a light tart note and pear and tangerine notes that extend into the finish. High carbonation with a slightly astringent note toward the end of the sip. Brett barnyard funk up front with some apricot to back it up. Slight herbal and earthy character. Light fluffy mouthfeel.”

Overall: “More malt-forward example with a bit of spicy hops and light peach and pear notes toward the end. Creamy consistency helps. A bit too sweet and malty for my tastes but nothing inherently wrong. Brett funk-forward stone-fruit saison with a moderate amount of acidity that makes it drinkable and refreshing. Great light and fluffy mouthfeel. Overly clean compared to some of the acid bombs we’ve had.”
