COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Summers here in North Florida are hot and humid, not exactly the conditions that most ale yeasts prefer. This is why Swamp Head chose a yeast for this beer that likes it hot! This traditional ale yeast used in the Wallonia region of Belgium produces a complex seasonal ale known as Saison. They do their best work at temperatures above 80, while typical ale yeasts prefer temperatures in the 60’s. So we figured if we have to work in a sweltering swamp environment, why not brew a seasonal ale that enjoys Florida summers too! From the initial aromas of pepper and summer fruits to the lingering finish hinted of floral hops, Saison du Swamp is a bottle-conditioned ale sealed for any season.

Thanks to Blazer06 for opening this at IBrew2or3’s going away. Pours a clear yellow with a white head. Nose is swamp grape (scuppernogs), sweetness, apple, and the vaguest hint of funk with sweetness coming around for another pass. Flavor is similar with the grape part hitting with the sweetness in front, then some sweet apple, yeast, and a vague hint of funk before the sweetness comes in to clean up. Light to medium-bodied and not bad overall.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06 pour hazy avg gold with thin white head. Nose light funk, peach, summer fruit, sweet malt, and hint of wood. Taste nice sweet up front, some banana and Belgian sugar, light spice. More funk in the nose than in the taste.

Bottle thanks to Homer! Pours clear golden, medium white head, dissipates slowly, nice lacing. Aroma is floral, honey, pepper, coriander, dust. Flavor is very light sweet, but the honey flavor makes it seem sweeter than it is, light bitter, floral and light herbal notes. Lightish body. easy to drink.
