COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saisons are a Belgian farmhouse style. The specific yeast used to brew them creates an unbelievably complex flavor profile with notes of tropical fruits, berries, apples, exotic spices and an earthiness. As a style Saisons are very wide open. We love to brew many examples of the style and really explore the possibilities. Stepchild Saison is red color, very smooth, dry and (somewhat rambunctious). We created this beer with the thought, "What would a pinot noir taste like if it was a beer?"

Pours amber with thin white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast and dark fruits. Taste of candied sugar. Medium mouthfeel. Not what I was expecting by not as light as I thought for a Saison. Still a good brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Appearance: Thoughtfully served up an opaque, amber-hued body with a scant, wispy, whitish head.

Smell: Stepchild smells of spiced blended wine, honey atop toasted bread, a pinch of bitterish herbs, and a spritz of spirits.

Taste: Spiciness upfront, with a sweetish introduction of honey graham-tasting malts. Handful of tart red berries, maybe a sip of chilled mulled wine. Scant sense of bitterness, but all the while there’s that pervasive spiciness. Winy, tart, and with a lingering spice character beyond the smooth finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: When 5 Seasons teamed up with homebrewer Phil Farrell and released La Fin du Poulet Saison back in 2007, it was something rare and wonderful. Now, sheeeet, 5 Seasons is rolling out with a new saison every other week, with my favorites being the Pepe le Pew from 5 North and the Provence here at 5 West.
