North Coast Le Merle


This is a domestic saison. Not much information about the beer on their website, other than a Michael Jackson (the beer one) quote. I’ve liked North Coast in the past, and I love saisons, so let’s see if this brings some tastiness to the table.

Saison. 7.9% ABV. California.

Unfiltered apple juice in appearance. White, lasting head.

Yeast right away giving a slight cheese funk to the nose. But lots of fruit. Baked apples for days. Bananas and strawberries also come through.

Pretty light mouthfeel, actually, would like to see a little thicker.

Yeast and baked apple come out a lot on this beer. I do get quite a bit of fruit, which is lovely, with just a hint of funk.

Not a bad beer, but I’ve had better saisons. 89 points.
