What the brewers say

“Inspired by the rustic farmhouse saisons of southern Belgium, Regalia is brewed with barley, wheat, and spelt and fermented with Brettanomyces. A sturdy malt character supports the array of flavors that the yeast provides.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Raisin and honey oxidation. A bit of orange and pineapple behind that. Fruit notes of lemon, apple, and peach. A nice blend of all the traditional saison flavors, with heavy peppery character with some nice apple and pear esters.”

Flavor: “Fairly oxidized. Raisin and honey up front. Orange, apple, and a bit of almost cinnamon. A wheat-like sweetness with some lemon and slight acidity. Fruity esters add complexity. Low carbonation and finishes with a slight silky sweetness. Odd sweetness that lingers a bit too long, but it does dry out and the hops and carbonation keep it from feeling heavy.”

Overall: “A nice orange, apple, cinnamon thing, but it’s fairly oxidized and very low carb so it comes across somewhat sweet. A pretty ’between the lines’ saison that is punching in a higher weight class than most. Needs more carbonation.”
