COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the times before modern industry, the cold, shorter days of the approaching winter directly affected the character of a breweries beer. For our third batch of beer we let the cooler temperatures influence the brewing process. The result was a remarkable variation on Mystic Saison. The hops are brighter, the drinkability fantastic, and balance of flavors intriguing. Because of this venture into old ways of brewing (and the distinct differences they create), we called this beer "An Dreoilin" after an ancient druid festival of the winter solstice.

Pours golden with a big, lacy, white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, caramel and pale malts, and a light floral hoppiness. Flavor the same. Average texture. A really good Belgian saison, a style that this brewery continues to do well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours clear blonde with a white head with minimum head retention. Interesting spicy aromas with cranberry and herbal notes as well as hints of cloves. Lively carbonation, light bodied, spicy palate, crispy malts, with a faint restrained astringency in the finale. Very well-crafted Saison.

Hair6a11 (1358) - Illinois, USA - MAR 18, 2014
Bottle; Pour is unfiltered medium golden with a two fingered, fine bubbled white head into this glass. It does retain fairly well, with some light lacing present in this glass. The nose is mineral water, lemon balm, with some herbal notes coming from sage and thyme. A touch of florals is present. The flavor profile has a slight vegetable element initial, mild belgian, some sweet breads here, moving to more of the lemon note with spritzy carbonation here. The center is really lacking and the finish doesn’t come across as very appealing. Its a decent saison - thats as far as I’ll go with it
