COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Spring Saison is light blonde in color with a fresh hoppiness and a wild and rustic Brettanomyces character. Lighter in color and alcohol than our Saison Rue, yet equally complex in its own way. Perfect for warmer weather and Spring celebrations.

Reviewed 3/4/13. 750ml bottle poured into a Duvel tulip. A: Pours a moderately hazy copper color. The head is a two finger white shade that intensely forms bubbles as it’s poured. It recedes fairly quick, and leaves spotty rings of lacing down the glass. S: There’s a nice funky barnyard tone, and a lesser inhale of both citrus and apple peel. The citrusy qualities almost seem hop-derived; always a good thing in my book. Aromatically, it’s a little mild for my tastes, but nonetheless pleasant. T: At first, citrus qualities hit the tongue are quite pleasant, before the funkiness starts to build up. The finish is a combination of citrusy/grassy hops, herbs, and barnyard flavors. I feel like the modicum of complexity it offers isn’t quite enough to inspire further sips out of interest. Generally, the flavors here are extremely nondescript, to a fault - and even worse is a note on the back end which is distinctly mineral-esque to the point of being metallic. It’s not bad, just insipid. M: The feel starts off with a decent creaminess, before fading to a moderately dirty dryness on the finish and aftertaste. This dryness doesn’t fully last; a syrupy linger coats the palate - one that inhibits drinkability. It seems like the wet, creamy feel exasperates the strength of the already high carbonation to me. On the positive side, it certainly feels lively. O: This one isn’t that great. I can see this one appealing to the masses - but the drinkability isn’t fantastic, and it doesn’t feature the requisite depth to make it interesting, either. At least this is one of The Bruery’s cheapest offerings...at $10/750ml. I’ve certainly had far more interesting 4/6 packs at the same price (and even far more interesting saisons, for that matter...can you say Tank 7?)

From a bomber to a tulip on Easter Eve 2014. Hazy golden hue with ample fluffy white head. Light Brett funk. Flavor is meadow grass, sage, a little sour and very dry... Pairs extremely well with the Easter feast...

Fritz123 (809) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - APR 6, 2014
Draft at the Sybarite Pig in Boca Raton, FL. Snifter. Pours a yellowish-light orange with haze. Solid white pillow head that lasted for awhile and laced nicely. The aroma was light and airy with brett, light flowers, light spice and a hint of pepper. The taste was also mild with the brett and other wild yeasts, light flowers and fruits, and a touch of pepper. Very light body and moderate carbonation. Somewhat dry finish. I liked the lightness especially after drinking three or four heavy beers.

kathouse (812) - Nevada, USA - APR 4, 2014
Clear with a thin but sticky lace head. I tried really hard to find bold aromas and flavors but just couldn’t. Mild spice and some malt. Light body is refreshing. Finish is brief with a touch of pepper.
