Green Bench St Peter’s: Saison De Banc Vert
Green Bench St Peter’s: Saison De Banc Vert is a Saison/Farmhouse Ale that is 100% oak fermented. 6.5% ABV. I picked this bottle up at the total Wine in St. Pete, FL. Looked like a good deal at $6.99 for a 500ml bottle
This pours with a cloudy orange color, huge white head that surprised me when came on strong at the end of my pour. The aroma has a strong yeast and carbonation smell to it. Not particularly fruity or funky. The taste brings in some nice orange and grapefruit citrus, some good dry oak with hints of vanilla, grass and hay, and some sweet grain. Most of the flavor at the end of the taste is really coming from a lot of yeast complexity. Enjoying the Belgian barnyard funkiness, and a dry champagne like flavor.
This would not be an everyday beer for me but it is a nice take on a the style for sure. Well worth the $6.99!
