COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saison Renaud exemplifies a modern take on the traditional farmhouse ale. Made with just pilsner malt and Saaz hops, this recipe is made to truly let the assertiveness of our house yeast shine. Presenting a clean and crisp body, the spicy and fruity esters of the yeast prevail over a slight earthy bitterness from the Saaz.

The Name. Renaud show its french ancestry it naming after Bryans great grandmother, Florence Renaud, from Popple Dungeon, VT.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass; batch number: 015. Pours lightly hazy golden yellow color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big lemon, orange, apricot, pear, apple, white grape, peppercorn, straw, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and moderate bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big lemon, orange, apricot, pear, apple, white grape, peppercorn, straw, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Moderate herbal/yeast spiciness after the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange, apricot, pear, apple, white grape, peppercorn, straw, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from carbonation and yeast spiciness as well. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, and fairly grainy/bready/creamy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an outstanding saison! All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and moderate bready malt flavors; and very smooth, crisp, and easy to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

Bulk_Carrier (4095) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - FEB 20, 2016
This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a hazy yellow color with a one finger white foamy quickly dissipating head that left some white side notes of clinginess. The smell starts off with a dry efferevescent champagne like character rolling over some sweet lemon pulp and a delicate sweet dry grassiness. Grapefruit slides in underneath. The taste moderately balances the crisp sweetness of the dryness to a light wet nurturing aftertaste. Light crisp sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with the dry crispness hitting my tongue appropriately. Overall, nice saison, Id have again, most likely with food.

Stoned99 (1364) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 20, 2016
Sampled at The brewery during the Boston Brew tour. Aroma: banana, floral notes, cloves. App: hazy straw with medium white head, good retention, nice lacing. Taste and palate: light to begin body, light sweetness, light bitter finish. Overall: good but would like it more dryer.

BillKismet (3886) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 1, 2016
Golden body with a lacey white head. The aroma is of a soapy yeastyness and muddled European hoppiness with a denseness to it. Crystal clean body of cut grass, champagne, and stone fruit. Crisp stone fruit and yeasty finish.

JorisPPattyn (9595) - Ursel, BELGIUM - NOV 22, 2015
Towering, dense, quite stable yellowish head over faintly veiled greenish-golden beer. Spicy nose, yeasty, citrus. Rather dull. BItter, some ureum, human sweat, snert, dull grains, spices and herbs. Finishes astringent. Dry; long lasting effects. Nope, that isnt it - nothing attractive, nothing pleasing. Wouldnt want to drink this during hard work.
