Divine Yule Saison [Advent Booze Calendar: 7 Days Till Xmas]   2 comments

divine yule saison a

“What’s in this?” I wondered as I sat in the window of the Fork Handles to try the Divine Yule Saison.  Reading on the web, it turns out it is made with four types of hops and boiled pumpkin…wouldn’t imagine it would work but it does.

Overall: Medicinal in flavour and action, like, “wow, Mom’s prescriptions are better than usual.”  

Colour: Yellow like a copperhead’s belly, pale golden.

Aroma: Juicy Fruit gum (first Wrigley’s reference since Baseball season).  Ethylene, too, like overripe apples.

Mouth: Medium body, sharply citric.  Lot’s of after taste but leaves mouth clean.

Flavour: Floral, like a blond…a very bitter blond.  Seasonal bitterness, bitterness of regret and loss.  Very good stuff.

Yesterday’s entry here.
