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 it’s french ancestry it naming after Bryan’s great grandmother, Florence Renaud, from Popple Dungeon, VT.

375ml bottle in a tulip. Pours copper/golden with a fluffy, white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, light fruits, caramel malts, bread, and floral hops. Flavor the same. Average texture. A classic yet above average saison.

Aroma: lightly funky and fruity; Appearance: hazy golden with creamy white head that lingers; Taste: follows nose with some Belgian spice and more sweetness; Palate: light bodied with long sweetly funky finish; Overall: pretty good but a bit too cloying.

jgb9348 (6437) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 2, 2017
Hazy honey and light copper coloured body with a rather large, three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of light hay, grass, a touch of herbs, some mild hop notes and a dose of curacao and bunches of coriander seed. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong grassy and herbal flavours with a perfumey bite also showing some light hop bitterness, mellow sugary sweetness with some fruit and a bit of the dry yeastie bite on the very end. Aftertaste shows more of the dry and grassy flavours with the herbs and perfume, but little complexity and no sweetness at all, with a bit of funk and complex yeast strain, if nothing else. Overall, a nice and dry saison with some mellow sugars and much more of a flavour from the light hops and grassy/herbal qualities than anything else. Nice to sample as this is a good Saison, but nothing amazing nor should be gone too far out of the way to acquire. I sampled this 75 cL caged and corked bottle purchased earlier in the day at BeerTopia in Omaha, Nebraska on 01-October-2017 for US$10,49 sampled in my hotel room later in the day on 01-October-2017 here in Omaha, Nebraska.

Bottle from table and Vine. Pours cloudy and yellow with an inch of white foam. Leaves a lot of lacing and there’s also a lot of yeast from the bottle conditioning. Nice barnyard and hop notes on the nose. Clean and crisp on the tongue with a nice amount of funk as well. Nice!

Quick3Beers (1360) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 20, 2017
Pours a surprisingly dark amber from a bottle, thick white head retains. Aroma of lemons, flavor is yeasty and sweet. Not as strong of an acidic bite as some can be. Good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
