Swamp Head Brewery Saison du Swamp

What the brewers say

“From the initial aromas of pepper and summer fruits to the lingering finish with a hint of floral hops, Saison Du Swamp is a bottle-conditioned ale that can be enjoyed in any season.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Lots of honey on the nose, almost mead-like, with hints of floral, lemon, and citrus. A great apple-cider aroma, with nice peppery spices, vanilla, and light yeast fruitiness. Spicier notes emerge as it warms.”

Flavor: “Touches of caramel apple, with honey notes that are present but not overpowering, and add a nice sweetness. Stronger floral, strawberry, and lemon notes complement the pepper, spearmint, and corn chips flavors. Somewhat sweet-yet-dry saison that fades to a light, tart, bitter finish.”

Overall: “Strong honey flavors make this saison taste much like a dry mead or white wine with the mix of sweet, dry, and delicate. An apple-cider flavor throughout, with notes of caramel, vanilla, and peppery spice. Bitter finish, but light and tart.”
