American hopped saison.

Editor’s note: The 2009+ versions are spiked with Brett at bottling. Bottles from 2009 are marked as such, although 2010 and 2011 bottles appear to not note the vintage on the label, but might be printed on the neck or base.

asedzie (735) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 28, 2010
Bottle. Pours hazy golden with moderate white head. Lots of lacing. Bright aroma of citrus hops, spice, mild wet hay, mown grass, just a little bit of a fruity sour note and earthy mildewed leaves. Syrup-like sweetness and some alcohol dominates in the flavor, some barnyard funk and around the periphery, finishes with peppery bitterness and lightly astringent alcohol. Lots of interesting hop flavors, coupled with the brett and yeast flavors make this beer a bit of a challenge something to reflect on.

popery (1741) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 25, 2010
This is a very good saison and, with some time, might be a great one. For now, there isn’t quite enough brett character and it’s a bit sweet. The aroma is strong and bright with good barnyard brett notes. There are also notes of citrus, Belgian earth and fresh grains. American hop citrus is interesting in a saison, but it’s also a bit too hop bitter, in my opinion. Mouthfeel is just a tad heavy, but it’s still easy to drink. Of course, it will be interesting to see how it develops.

sayravai (4700) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 25, 2010
(Bottled, 0.75l, sampled 2010-02-05) Hazy golden with a small, firm, white head. Mild aroma of peachy fruit, some berries and a touch of bretty sourness. Flavor is sourish, pale malty, softly fruity, somewhat yeasty and slightly alcoholic. Medium body with soft CO2. In real Saisons, the spicy, tart and dry freshness makes it tempting, but here the stuffy sweetness has been attempted to compensate adding brett - with pretty lame results. Not a bad beer, though.
