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.

Keg- very mild to almost non-existent Brett characteristics. Nice rustic, slightly rough around the edges flavor profile. Probably true to traditional/historical saisons. Hop levels are perfect for the style, very present, but don't overwhelm the flavor if the beer.

KyotoLefty (6322) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 6, 2014
Bottle from Sugaya. Lemony, grapefruit nose, nice bretty funk is restrained, some yogurt there too. Bright gold, almost pastel, cloudy, with a fine head. More brett in the flavor, a bit earthy, grassy, leather and dust, and more lactic notes. Grapefruit zest still going. Crisp, high carbonation, somewhat bitter finish. Nice stuff. A but dirtier flavor than I hoped after the nose, but still good.

Belle soirée de dégustation avec mes amis campagnards. Un code et une date qui figure sur la bouteille: #1142, 12/18/13. Un liquide blond/doré qui est évidemment embrouillé. Une tête des plus solides et une épaisse dentelle sur nos verres. Un nez bien rustique, légèrement poivré avec un grain frais, des notes citronnées et des fleurs sauvages. Un goût approprié à la saison estivale, bien levuré et épicé avec un petit fruit jaune, des céréales tendres et des petites fleurs des champs. Une sensation en bouche qui est plaisante avec son corps bien aéré. Un arrière-goût frais, fermier et bien sec. Cette bière qui a plus de 6 mois d’âge a perdu de ses houblons mais a développé une belle rusticité. J’aime ce qu’elle offre présentement. Maintenant, je vais tenter de me trouver une très jeune bouteille.

750 mL bottle from 2011. This has been a bit of a cellar cleaning weekend. Aroma is full of Brett pineapple and tropical fruit notes with fainter cherry pie filling. Medium, spicy phenolic notes with some herbal undertones. Light pear and red apple character and a hint of honey. Pours a cloudy, golden orange with a big, fluffy, white head of moderate thickness that displays a decent retention as it recedes to the edges. Light lacing and faint legs. Flavor has a lot more fruit character than the aroma with a moderate pear and red apple note followed by some overripe stone fruit. Moderate Brett character in the aroma with tropical fruit and a more phenolic, herbal and earthy note than in the aroma. Light phenolic spice and moderate bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with high carbonation; it did not gush, but the foam did creep up the neck of the bottle a bit. Low, but present astringency and low alcohol warmth Overall, a really nice saison but its just a little rough around the edges. If the flavor matched more closely with the aroma I think this could be amazing, but the fruit notes in the flavor were not quite working with the phenolics.

RRistow12 (242) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JUN 17, 2014
Tasted from bottle. Pours a hazy gold with huge white head and tons of lacing. Aroma is grass, hay, belgian yeast and spices. Taste is fairly sweet with minimal to no bitterness. Belgian spices and grains with a slight bit of citrus flavors. Medium bodied with a crisp and refreshing mouthfeel. Very solid saison. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
