A seasonal brew from one of the greats.
Saison: 6.5%abv Suggested serving temperature
“Saisons are sturdy farmhouse ale that was traditionally brewed in the winter, to be consumed throughout the summer months.”-BeerAdvocate I guess I missed this one on previous trips to the grocery store. I am a fan of the St. Feuillien and a fan of beers that claim to be different from that of normal Belgian brews-it just makes sense. A foamy, sparkling head with light lacing sits atop this brew. Carbonation rises constantly through the beer giving it good texture. Visually it is a dark, opaque amber color, being unfiltered, it looks very full-bodied. With sweet earthy aromas of hops and malt, this beer is complex. Think of a semi-sweet, dry champagne. I also taste something like raisins-dried fruits. Complex is almost an understatement-as I continue to sip I find myself questioning the flavors that evolve. I find it quite satisfying on this quiet, cool, autumn afternoon. It reminds me of harvest season and the smell of the forest as the leaves drop and decompose. A truly down to earth beer.
St. Feuillien’s has done it again.
