Boston Beer Company (Samuel Adams) Harvest Saison Saison at 6.0% ABV
Pours a cloudy pale amber with a short finger of white head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, moderate patchy lacing. Nose is banana, light malt, yeast and spice. Taste is mildly spicy pepper, banana, bready yeast, ending mildly bitter. Medium body, moderate sustained carbonation, and a semi-dry finish.
Well, it ain’t no Hennepin – but it’s a darn sight better than I was expecting it to be. Surprisingly good for a fairly large-market beer. I’d like it a bit more peppery, but all things considered, it’s probably the best Sam Adams I’ve ever had.
