Le Merle

750 mL, corked & caged bottle, $6.99 from Green’s on Ponce, Atlanta, GA, USA.
Poured into the 500 mL Tucher Weizen glass this looks good. Cloudy honey colored body, good carbonation, great head and retention.
This is certainly sweeter than many traditional Saisons, but still maintains and retains some funk and a little, sweet citrus orange and lime twang. The sweetness is tempered in the finish with quite a large dose of bitterness. I’d even go as far as to say that there is a tiny bit of aspirin in the ending. This is a little like a sweet and sour beer with the sweetness upfront and the biterness a long way in the back end.
Enjoyable, and drinkable. A little out of the style, but still a nice beer. I prefer something like a Saison DuPont in the style, but this beer stands on its own two feet strongly.
