Cheap Chic Saison : Aroma & Taste

I know some people may wonder what the heck was going on with this picture – well the keg kicked during pouring but the staff at Craftsman Yokohama took pity on me, it was the second beer that I had ordered and had kicked on me.

Cheap Chic Saison poured out a slightly hazy golden straw colour with a plump white head that left lots of lacing down the side of the glass. The aroma was a light fruity phenolic aroma with a light sweetness going on. The aroma smelt dry – I don’t know if that is possible – but it really did smell dry. As Cheap Chic Saison warmed up, there was a light orange aroma present though it was less potent than the fruity phenols.

The body to Cheap Chic Saison was dry from the get go – nothing juicy about this beer. There was a smooth fruity phenolic flavour lingering throughout drinking, with an underlying touch of sweetness helping to keep the flavours going. As the beer warmed up, there was a light spiciness to proceedings, not in a potent way but enough to prick up the taste buds before letting the fruity phenols take over.
