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.

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.

Draft at taproom. Pours yellow with a white head. Nose is a bit estery for my tastes. Doesn’t leave much lacing in the glass. Not getting much funk or barnyard on the tongue. Fairly soft mouthfeel. A bit of juicy fruit flavor with a clean finish. It’s not a bad beer or a poorly made one. It just doesn’t feel like a saison to me.

Honey hops flavor with a fizzy long finish and murky clear gold color with a foamy head. Light and tasty.

Had on tap at their place. Pours a hazy light yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is banana and slight bubblegum. Flavor follows and finishes dry. Nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Urban Chestnut, pours a hazy gold with a thick white head, the aroma was of grass and some bread with a little bit of barnyard funk thrown in as well, flavor has some citrus at first with a yeasty finish, light and easy drinking though, not bad.

arminjewell (7999) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy golden pour with white head, aroma brought candied fruit, pear, some white grape into a bit of grass, lemon, hints of esters in there, some biscuit. Taste is a mix of grass, bread, biscuit, hints of white grape, pear, some spice, finishing fairly bitter, slightly spicy.

EtTuCthulhu (1289) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - AUG 14, 2014
The color is a hazy golden color with a large white head, and the aroma blends light malts and banana, The taste is mildly sweet and a touch sour, and the palate has a thick texture, medium body, soft carbonation, and a sweet finish. Overall, the beer is a bit too unbalanced towards the sweet to be truly enjoyable.

I had this at Urban Chestnut. Pours yellowish gold with a white head. Taste citrus, grass, lightly sweet. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap @ Urban Chestnut. Mild haze on the orange pour with a white head. Good citrus peel on the nose. Tons of lemon and orange peel. Yeast, some light spice, and bready malt. Kind of tart taste. Golden raisin, lemon, and some orange zest. Sweet bready malt, subtle white pepper, and a nice yeast note.
