Share This Review

The Seer is a Belgian-style Saison brewed by Holy Mountain Brewing Company, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a tulip glass from a bottle.

Appearance

The Seer pours an opaque yellow-gold and is topped by a puffy stack of white foam that offers good retention. Patches of sticky lace cling to the glass while bubbles continuously rise; indicative of its effervescence.

Aroma

Brettanomyces really bring the funk out in the aroma and is backed by lemon zest and clove.

Flavor

Complex palate starts with a pop of citrus and transitions to the aforementioned Brett yeast, spiced with pepper. Dry hopped, the funk and spice are complemented nicely by a taste of floral and herbal hops. Finishes a touch sour with lemon and hop oil. A light wheat base brings it all together.

Mouthfeel

Mouthfeel is crisp and dry with a medium-light body and high carbonation that just comes alive on the tongue.

Overall

While not quite a traditional saison, everything else about The Seer is superb. Its feel is perfect. The palate and aroma masterfully blend yeast and spices with hops. And that complexity produces a great tasting brew that’s light, refreshing, and easily quaffed. Well done!
