RATINGS: 35   MEAN: 3.27/5.0   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.24/5   SEASONAL: Spring   IBU: 30   EST. CALORIES: 189   ABV: 6.3%
At 6.3% ABV, about 30 IBU, and on the higher end of the carbonation spectrum, The Expat is in line with classic definitions of the style–by the numbers, anyway. Unlike most saisons, however, The Expat is brewed with a substantial percentage of rye in the mash and is filtered prior to packaging. The result is a crisp, effervescent saison that is true in spirit to the style’s heritage of fusing refreshment with a bold, spicy farmhouse character. It’s a great beer to enjoy on its own in the late afternoon, but may even be better when paired with a meal.

Minnesota Trip Beer #196. Keg at the brewery, 5/12/16. Hazy amber, thin creamy tan head, good retention. Aroma of toasted malts, rye, citrus. The taste is toasted malts, caramel, cherries, rye. Medium bodied.

ACHops (1584) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 11, 2016
On tap @ Fulton. Pours clear medium orange amber with thin white head. Aroma is big rye malt, lightly smoky on the back. Taste is clean toasted light rye malt, dry finish, very light saison yeast notes. Great rye flavor, super drinkable, honestly not quite readily identifiable as a saison.

12oz bottle. Thick, unfiltered orange-brown body. Creamy thin, glass lacing off-white head. Pleasant mouthfeel. Caramel tones of top of a clean, well made US Saison. Pretty enjoyable merging of flavors, the rye sort of mellows out the Saison yeast. Well made.

crossovert (12934) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 17, 2016
355ml bottle. This one is weird it tastes like grapefruit pith and I’m not sure where that is coming form, bitter and pithy.

B-. Pours a clear amber color with white head. The flavor is upfront and disappears quickly

csaso (2284) - Missouri, USA - APR 4, 2016
Tap - small foamy head, medium copper color, fairly balanced aroma and flavor with moderate malt backbone and mild earthy hops, spicy (in a little different way) - can't tell if it's from the malt or the yeast, a little bit of a different saison but ok overall ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

For the aroma, at first all I got was burnt sugar, toffee, bit of hops; next time around I did get a whiff of the saison musty funk. Flavor wasn’t bad with a rye fruity Saison stylishness. Some off notes in the finish tho.

Travlr (24880) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 7, 2015
Draft. Hazy golden yellow color. Aroma of lightly spiced bread dough. Taste has funky spice. Decent.

kaser (6312) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 30, 2015
Yellowish pour from draft at Fulton. White head. Sweet and fruity. Peach lemon and bubblegum. Bitter finish. Not bad
