Saison (Brasserie St. Feuillien, Le Roeulx, Belgium)

Next beer in the series of beer glasses that I won at Brown Bag Blind Tasting back in January is Saison by St. Feuillien.  I've been a bit busy this winter, but glad to be finally getting to taste these beer from its own glass properly.

Snowy white head with medium sized bubbles on top of a hazy orange ale.  Not an overly assertive nose, so the yeast floats over slight pepper and spice, lemon, orange and sweet malt.  Carbonation bite leads into the same lemon, orange and yeasty spice held up with a light bodied sweetness.

A very good but not amazing saison. Thins out even more when it warms, but remains well worth the effort.
