January 6th, 2012 - Lost Abbey’s version of the Saison might be engineered for hot Southern Californian days, but it strays from the Southern Californian silver bullet of brewing: hops. Red Barn’s aroma is buttery and spicy, and then sweetened by a pronounced note of vanilla. The deep richness of custard supports this fine filigree of scents, and the whole concoction is topped off with a breath-taking touch of Iris. The flavor, like other saisons, is mild. A rich buttery texture dominates the background, while pepper and grass spiciness dance on the front of the palate, accompanied by a slight grainy sweetness, and a beautifully balanced, rich and creamy pastoral flavor.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy intense yellow with orange, very intense color. Huge frothy top, white, diminishing medium fast leaving rich prolate lasing. Aroma - pleasant, intense, dominant malt sweet with sour yeast touch in vanguard.Notes of pineapple, old leather, flowery, caramel, ginger. Reminds bit of champagne yeast profile. Taste is medium sweet, light sour and min spicy on tongue, min astringent, plus medium to above medium bitter from hopping. Flavour is well combined, balanced indeed between yeasty-spicy side and malt softness, plus sour touch is more refreshing element than mess in this flavor. Pleasant saison. Palate dry finish from hops, medium plus body, compote-thick texture, soft carbonation, aftertaste - slicky mild herbal bitter.

Bottle at the De Molen, second Tuesday tasting, August 2013. Poured a crystal clear medium amber with a big frothy white head. The aroma is rich alcoholic with a little honey and resin. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with with lots of zesty orange, some yeast, malt and a little spice on the complex palate. A super tasty beer that would appeal to anyone.
