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.

kindly shared by bartlebier @ his cellar clearing tasting; a thoroughly balanced, easy-drinking Saison, classic in taste (pepper, almonds, marzipan) and dryness. Nice.

bartlebier (2977) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - DEC 21, 2015
50cl bottle bb02/2016 shared during Freiburg 2015 Jolly Cellar Clearing. - Dirty beige pour, reticent foam. Sweetish, peppered aromas of both stale Hefeweizen (peppery clove), bière de garde honey malt caramels and a whiff of saison skunk - mostly fruity caramels alas. Honeygolden body dried out by a nice white peppery strain, again riding the middle between Hefe-Garde-saison, leaving masses of un-dried wheat/malt sugars behind: green grape, white apricot, banana (+peel), + heather honey and lavendar spice. Slightly unpleasant slick mouthfeel. Nonetheless enough enjoyable aspects to keep the palate busy guessing - even if at only 5,3% indicated abv (Dérer Import) it could be much more moreish.

(Flasche) Es hat eine dunkelgelbe Farbe, klar filtriert mit einer weißen Schaummkrone. Das Aroma ist leicht dumpf, hat was on Weißwein, etwas Hefe und minimal skunky. Der Geschmack ist eher schlank, mit einem leichten Traubengeschmack und einer Note on Limettenschale im Nachgeschmack. Die leichte Bittere ist eher grün und anhänglich.

(bottle) slightly hazy deep golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of bran flakes, lemon peel and barnacles, with a light hint of aceto balsamico, some light bretty funk, peaches and caramel. flavour is mostly canned peaches and powdered sugar, heavily meaty, with some rather prominent notes of alcohol, beef jerky and mango in the semi-dry finish. medium-bodied with lively carbonation.

tmoreau (3265) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 23, 2015
Shared 16.9 oz. bottle poured to snifters, showing a hazed, golden hue, with a presentable layer of soft white head foam, and spotty lacing. The nose was dried apricot, banana, and spice as clove. The taste was similar notes, light bodied, with fair carbonation, but a pleasant spritziness to the mouthfeel elevated the flavor to a respectable level.
