COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by crisp white wines, Saison Blanc features New Zealand hops, golden raisins and white pepper for a decidedly bright, spicy, and robust low ABV beer. Finished with Brettanomyces at packaging, this beer will evolve for many more years to come.

375 ml bottle open with a massive pop. pours hazy gold with a massive crater rock off white head that required a three stage pour. nose of crackers, grass, black pepper. taste begins balanced that mold to undertones of sweetness. raisins come in as it warms. black pepper finish all wrapped in a solid body.

Bottle; Pour is murky gold with a frothy, two finger white head into this glass. It retains very well, with some spotting present. The nose is cut grasses, peppery spicing, raisin bread provides some sweetness, with a hint of citrus and peach present here. The flavor profile is bittering, spicy hops initial, sweet bread and citrus, moving to softer fruits , with pepper spicing and mild funk. It is bright, but this brew has issues, in that it’s somewhat muddled, more bittering than you’d like for the style, and lacking in the proper finish line I’d prefer. Interesting, though

DocLock (7502) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Bottle. Pours turbid bright canary with minimal white head. Nose is funky, hopcitric, with dry floral and white pepper notes. Tastes of funky yeasty malt, hopcitrus, florals, white peppery spice, and a complex finish and mouthfeel. This is a great saison.

MaBeer1972 (1246) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 13, 2013
Small bottle from Julio’s. Pours out with a super head so I had to let it settle a while. Rated from the bottom of the bottle. A cloudy light yellow color with a frothy white head. Peppery-lemon aroma and flavors, with an earthy sweetness (from the raisins?). Very smooth drinking and otherwise enjoyable.

HonkeyBra (3115) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - NOV 9, 2013
375ml bottle. Pours a golden yellow with a big, thick, white rocky head. Aroma is earthy with lots of fleshy raisin notes. Flavor is oddly sweet, lots of raisin sweetness up front, some bready malts and brett notes. Quite sweet, actually. Medium bodied with a coating mouthfeel, somewhat flabby carbonation. Just too weirdly sweet for me.
