COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Provisional saison, Artisan ale aged in oak barrels In a particular region of southern Belgium, the reserve or provision saison was called surette, meaning tart. Using time-honored techniques, our saisons employ old-world methods to restore complexity and the classical rustic character lost in modern day saison. Brewed with local Colorado floor malted barley, traditional harvest grains, and noble hops, Surette embodies old-world saison brewing traditions. Each batch of Surette is an expression of the large oak foeders it matures in while taking on an aged vinous quality and a complex tartness. Showcasing citrusy ripe fruits, a light zesty spice, and earthy undertones, Surette’s character exemplifies our mixed culture of Brettanomyces and souring bacteria.

stowe_ronald (10) - - APR 4, 2018
Aroma is mild and unremarkable. Appearance is light but cloudy in color with a week head. Very tart flavor almost more in line with a sour than a saison. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sharp , crisp saison , only a light barrel influence, some crisp hops, and a touch of sourness on the finish

The_Osprey (10145) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2018
Keg at Brewdog Shepherd's Bush as Crooked Stave Surette, 6.2%. Hazy translucent golden yellow, foamy white head leaves full lacing. Aroma is minty, sherbet, musty, tired herbs long overdue from the cupboard, oregano. Body is light with tingly carbonation. Taste is celery, sugary, little kiwi white, gooseberry, little salty - no, more like dissolved potassium, isotonic drink, citrus flavour rehydration formula. Quite tasty. (7-4-8-3-16=3.8)

3.4
theprof (1570) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2018
Tap at Brew Dog. Pours hazy golden amber with thin lace. Aroma has pithy citrus and herbal notes. Taste is medium sweet sour with a bitter edgy finish. Palate is medium bodied, sticky texture, soft carbonation and a crisp finish. This rating is brought to you by some one who wants the Saison Wild craze to abate. Enough already...

375ml bottle - thanks Marduk! (6:3:5:3:11=2.8)
Soft fruity bretty aroma. Straw colour, misty, brief head. Tartish taste, a bit yeasty, some fruitishness - I believe marduk when he says rhubarb: it's a bitter non-fleshy thing going on. A touch aggressive, not a pleasant quaff at all, but not flawed /per se/.

2.4
Marduk (9206) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 13, 2018
375ml bottle. Hazy golden color. Small size, white head, stays. Farty, sweet, leather, fizzy in aroma. Leather, sour, bit of rhubarb in taste. Leather and rhubarb and saison yeast in aftertaste. Not for me.
