COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This French-style Saison was brewed in collaboration with our good friends at The Royale to celebrate the Feast Day of Louis IX (Saint Louis). There not-so-coincidentally happens to be a statue of Louis IX that sits atop ’Art Hill’, which (as you may know) is entitled "Apotheosis", in tribute to our beloved city of St. Louis.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 24, 2012
Growler, freshly tapped keg, Late Feb 2012: strong banana and fresh sourdough aroma...dusty around the edges. Extremely cloudy yellow straw, thin ivory ring at the edges. Slightly tart flavour, with a touch of citrus fruit, butterscotch and bitter vanilla. Palatte is very full, evenly carbonated and lively. Great beer. Great Growler.

Bottle consumed at Cropredy, Fairports Annual Reunion Festival 2015, Friday 14th courtesy of Craig. It’s very dark now so determining the colour is pointless, I cannot see but it’s probably golden with a white head. It’s fine, a tad fruity, even a little tangy and tart. Ok. A6 A3 T6 P3 Ov12 3.0

Bottle sampled at Chris and Ruth’s place in London. Clear golden beer with a nice lasting offwhite head. Hoppy citrus aroma, grassy, spicy notes, herbal, some floral notes. Hoppy citrus and perfume flavor, grassy, hay, grapefruit notes. Not extreme in any way, but drinkable and pleasant.

rumproasts (4182) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUL 17, 2015
Tap. Golden with small head. Light body. Mild pear/apple sweetness. Light spice. Dry it out a bit more and add more yeast, and it would be better, but decent.

MrBunn (2588) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a dense white head and aromas of coriander, white pepper, a little bit of grass and some apple juice. Flavor is apple juice and spices with a fairly thin feel, but no heat from the alcohol. Decent, but bland.

500mL bottle poured into a German Pilsner glass -- Poured a mostly clear gold with a nice white head. Aroma of light fruit, bread, and malt. Sweet slight funk. Easy to drink. That’s a great Sunday afternoon Saison.
