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.

750ml bottle, aged two years: Pours a clean golden hue with a huge over carbonated head and good lace. The aroma has notes of wet pale grains, honey, floral yeast esters, light white wheat, grassy hops and just a touch of barnyard vapours. The taste is cereal, honey, grass and herbal twang with very little Brettanomyces character. I am shocked by this and shocked by the fair amount of alcohol still at the forefront after aging, would think it would have mellowed by now. The mouth feel is lively due to over carbonation but a grainy tannic dryness reduces enjoyment. Honestly a tad disappointed in this one.

Pours a golden amber color with big fluffy head. Aromas of citrus, grass, yeast, and some dusty notes. Starts spicy effervescent, then to some grassy funky highlights...nice brett finish.

Backlog. At Mi2 at Cardinal 06.05.13. Very unclear golden. Large and foamy white head. Sweet aroma with a hint of lime. Fruity taste with lime and hints of hops. Short aftertaste with some hops. Round and a little sparkling mouthfeel. A balanced beer with medium drinkability.

Cloudy orange color. Nice lace head. Airy saison taste, but not too out there. Nice palate, excellent balance.

Magnifique saison que cette De Lente! Belle couleur dorée, mousseuse, savoureuse et aromatique à souhait, cette bière n’a rien à envier aux saisons belges traditionnelles! Tout est subtile dans cette bière dont les principales arômes sont douces, levurées «à la Belge», légèrement poivrées mais sans l’être de manière ni dominante ni sèche. Ce qui m’a frappé en premier dans cette bière est le côté mielleux de ce liquide légèrement sucré. Un petit miel de trèfle et de jeunes fleurs confère à cette bière une douceur des plus agréables! Une gorgée n’attend pas l’autre! Très effervescente, un brin poivrée, douce, longue en bouche, cette bière forme une apéro parfait par temps chaud et ensoleillé!

From the bottle. Hazy golden color with a frothy white head. Aroma of saison yeast, lemon zest, wheat, hay, and coriander. Taste is powerful, somewhat tart taste, with lemons, citrus, grapefruit, wheat, and bready yeast. Very drinkable, no detection of alcohol. Nice summer beer. Will drink again, and recommend to others

Blonde gold pour, very lively co2 brings out all the light sour fruity funk. Mildly tart as they say in description perfect summer beer.

Pours a slight hazy gold with a white head. Head retention is good. Aroma of peaches, citrus, light spice and of course the sour tone. Taste of hop bitterness, grupa fruits, green grapes and light spice. Awesome on a hot day.

Happy Easter~! Not too many Easter beers out there but I tracked one down: The Bruery Saison de Lente 6.5% A soft cloudy gold with a big soapy white head of foam. An aroma of orange blossoms, honey, soft spiciness and the lightest of funk. The taste is fruits, spice, earthy, honey, a metallic bitter brett quality & a dry finish. Quite an interesting easy drinking saison with a soft round mouthfeel.

Extremely refreshing, crisp, clean, dry saison. Nothing particularly notable aside from the tendency to be a bit overcarbed. Still delish.

Pours a hazy amber body with a thick head. Supernice aroma with farmhouse tones. Well balanced taste with a nice touch of complex tones. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
