A saison for the summer. Made with pilsner malt and Saaz hops…it’s similar to a pilsner with more spice and light fruit. 6.5% abv.

This is a first, 12.68 oz c&c bottle, hmmm looks like the RR and Lost Abbey bottles, have they been misleading us? Either way poured into a plastic hotel cup because I am in a hotel in Woburn, MA. Big pop of the cork with an all head pour, stupid plastic cup. After a few tries I get beer in there. Thick medium clarity dull golden colour (yeah, I am going Canadian on this one) with a pillow of cloudy foam. Thick ass lacing. I will take Dany’s line and say this is a "comfortable" saison. Its good on all accounts but a little too much esters, just a tad too sweet, at times a tad blunted as well. But the nose has a nice rustic character and pretty straight forward saison. But I am in Pretty Things country, so I need some more jena se qua from my saisons.

2015 Bottle from Whole Foods River St, drunk 6/14/15
Quite carbonated leading to a plentiful, foamy white head that slowly recedes to cover. Body is a deep gold with light amber tints, mostly clear, leaving the sediment in the bottom.
Light cookies, dry tangerines, hints of acidity and moderately fruity esters all do a passable job of identifying this as a saison, though it’s far less hoppy than Dupont, far less interestingly malty or musty than Blaugies and without any of the funk of Fantome. That’s ok. At least it’s not Americanized, I guess, nor is there any alcohol or flaw to it.
For all the carbonation, the mouthfeel is a bit loose despite the malt being quite chewy and probably a bit underattenuated. Not that it’s a sugar bomb or anything, rather, think along the lines of Dupont Foret and (minus the better presented yeast flavors) you’re not too far off. Bread dough, light toffee and tons of honeyed pils malt with spicy/floral saaz notes adding only light bitterness but ample flavor. Simple, as intended, and drinkable. The loose/overly watery texture lessened my enjoyment considerably.

BBB63 (6426) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAY 11, 2015
Once I finally got the head to settle down enough to drink it I found a brisk, lively, straightforward brew with clean Pils malt and snappy Saaz hops touched by light handed spice. Man this could rock the summer away. Uber yummy it is elegance.
