Smuttlabs Daily Brett, a Belgian-style Saison by Smuttynose Brewing Company

Share This Review

Smuttlabs Daily Brett is a Belgian-style Saison brewed by Smuttynose Brewing Company, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, was served in a tulip glass from a bottle.

Appearance

The Saison pours a cloudy marigold and is topped by an inch-thick cap of white foam. The head reduces slowly and leaves behind some lacing.

Aroma

Funky aroma of Brettanomyces yeast dominates the nose; backed mildly by lemon and spice.

Flavor

The palate features grassy hops, yeast, and clove. Finishes dryly with tart lemon.

Mouthfeel

Its feel is crisp and effervescent with a light body and abundant carbonation.

Overall

For a beer touting its use of Brett yeast, its presence in the Smuttlabs Daily Brett is underwhelming. The other flavors don’t particularly shine, either. As a saison, this brew is palatable but not one that excels.

About the Saison

Also known as a Farmhouse Ale, the Belgian Saison originated as a rustic ale provided for farmhands in French-speaking Wallonia. The modern Saison by Dupont was produced in the 1920s. Its mouthfeel is dry and ranges from light to medium with high carbonation. Typically golden in color, the style can also appear amber or brown. Its palate is either bittered or soured with citrus fruit flavors, earthy or spicy hops, and possibly spiced. Darker versions may be a little sweeter. Regardless of the variation, the Saison yeast character is an absolute must.
