A late December arrival makes for a late February review, but you can still find this holiday release on shelves if you look for a bit. This is a light saison designed for winter consumption — an unusual combination in the world of holiday brews. It offers a malty and fruity combo up front that slowly segues into notes of baking spice. Things wrap up with notes of nutmeg, coriander, and lemon peel, plus a light slug of hops. On the light side for a winter brew, it’s a pleasant enough Christmastime sipper for those who prefer a little restraint in their “holiday” beer spices.
