Pretty Thing's Jack D'or
Pretty Things "Jack D'Or" is a wonderful domestic take on the Belgian Saison style. The beer was consumed from a Duvel goblet, poured from a 22 ounce brown bottle.
Jack D'or pours a very crisp light yellow with a small amount of white head and some lacing. The beer is very carbonated, with lots of bubbles crawling towards the top of the glass. The aroma of the beer is very inviting, with notes of lemon, yeast, more citrus and some faint pepper notes. The beer's taste is dominated by yeast, lemon, and some familiar North American hops. Jack D'or finishes very dry, pleasantly refreshing. The beer hides its alcohol very well. Overall, very well done. Jack D'or is true to the style , but possesses enough of its own character to set itself apart from other saisons.
