Intro: A 750ml corked and capped bottle, bottled on 19th April 2021, with a best before date of 19th April 2031. Poured into a Tilquin stemmed glass.
Appearance: A very slightly hazy golden colour with a two finger white head that dissipated quickly, while leaving only sparse to no lacing.
Aroma: A bit muted, but it’s lightly tart, lightly funky, with notes of peach and lime zest.
Taste: Sour, tart, peach, apricot, minerals, with a light funky background.
Mouthfeel: Medium to light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: I really enjoyed Saison Provision, and I also like peaches, so perhaps my hopes were too high. It just didn’t quite come together as good as I hoped it would, as both the aroma and flavours were kind of muted.
