Tasted: Leaner Saison (c)

leaner saison c pour

Look: Pours clear. Pale straw to pale gold in color. Half a glass of pristine, white foam. Retention is average; bubbles become quite large. Lacing exists but all falls back to liquid level.

Aroma: A good mix of scents meet the nose. Ripe tropical fruits, light spice with pear and gentle banana, seemingly from the yeast. Light grainy sweetness.

Taste: Spice, sweet grain and yeast characteristics up front. The middle to the end builds the tropical fruit element, lingering into the finish. No real bitterness but lingering pepper.

Drinkability: Medium body. Big carbonation. Crisp. Clean. Dry.

Overall: I don’t why I have gone so long without brewing a saison. Reminds me that it is one of my favorite styles. I have been blinded by the hop. Easy to drink. Will make again.

I might step this one up with a bit more hops: dry hop? I will have to brew saisons on a more regular basis. Enjoy!

Useless Fact: An average person’s yearly fast food intake will contain 12 pubic hairs.
