Smell: Brett character: slightly tart, some wet leather, citrus pith. Golden malt. Sugar. Juicy fruit.
Taste: As the aroma indicates but fuller and more complex. Added notes of anise, flowers, grassiness, lemon, coriander, and white pepper appear. It’s mildly bitter but still very dry. The alcohol is there, but it’s not readily apparent. Some mild chalkiness from the yeast is present as well.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied and crisp, but readily softened as it warms and foams up in the mouth.
Overall: Quite an enjoyable saison! It’s complex but still readily accessible. It’s interesting to keep my attention throughout, but also straight-forward enough that I can just let go and enjoy it as well.
