Another week has come to an end, seemingly quicker each time, so it is time to celebrate with an American craft beer.

I had heard good things about Pretty Things Beer and Ale Project back a couple of years ago. Of course, back then when I was chasing everything, I had to bite and find a few bottles. American craft beer number 352 is Jack D’Or by the aforementioned Pretty Things.

Jack is a Saison which just so happens to be one of my favorite styles of beer. Of course I hold beers of this style to a bit of a higher measurement that the rest and Jack disappoint, coming out better than the average beer. I would call it a clean Saison in that there wasn’t any sour or tart notes to go along with the sweet caramel and phenolic Belgian yeast. A good dose of carbonation, as expected, mixes with the light body to make for a refreshing mix. Enjoy!

Aroma: 6 (25%), Taste: 6 (25%), Look: 9 (15%), Drinkability: 9 (35%), Overall: 7.5

Useless Fact: Drinking lowers rather than raises the body temperature. There is an illusion of heat because alcohol causes the capillaries to dilate and fill with blood. In very cold weather drinking alcoholic beverages can lead to frostbite.
