What You Need to Know
The Siren’s Saison is a Farmhouse with that uses a Belgian yeast strain and French hops for European authenticity. So is it the real deal? Let’s get to the review.
The ale pours a ruddy amber that’s nearly opaque with just a glimmer of auburn light showing through. It’s capped by a finger-thick head of bone white foam that exhibits remarkable retention. Ample effervescence is visible in the glass.
The aroma is musty with a scent of crusty wheat bread and yeast.
The palate is led by a taste of wheat bread that transitions to a fruity bite of apple. A mild bitterness of citrus hops follows and is mellowed quickly by flavors of yeast, baked bread, and pepper.
The feel is on the lighter side of medium with active carbonation that feels prickly on the tongue. Its finish isn’t as quite dry as preferred.
Siren’s Saison is an adequate representation of the style but its use of wheat dominates the palate while fruity esters and spices are underplayed. Otherwise, the tasting is fairly balanced with a lively feel.
