Hi again everybody! Sorry that I have been fairly quiet this November, but life has been pretty hectic lately and after all the blogging I did back in October I needed to step back for a bit. Anyway, I wanted to make sure I got this review up since this was a special beer for me. I said a little while ago that I had probably had my final beer from Pretty Things, but then some friends from out of state went and surprised me!
Beer Name: East Kent Saison
Brewery: Pretty Things Beer and Ale Project
Description: Bottled back in October 2015, this was brewed with pale malt, English ale yeast, and Whitbread Goldings hops.
Appearance: It poured a cloudy yellow/light copper body that got topped off by a thin white foam.
Smell: Sweet malts with some yeasty notes on the end.
Taste: The sip began with sweet caramel malts. The sweetness then gave way to some mild yeasty notes and a mild floral bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Just about medium-bodied with a consistent bubbly carbonation.
Hype: High levels of nostalgia, though more for the brewery than this particular beer.
Overall: While I think this might have shown some signs of age in terms of how the tastes all came together, I still found myself really enjoying this. Considering how well this 5.6% saison was tasting over three years after bottling, I really wish I had more of this one when it was still rolling off the bottling line.
