St. Feuillien Saison

OK, so I see that this has just made it to Atlanta (and possibly the US) and that it is $7.99 for the 750 mL corked and caged bottle. Pretty good value I thought, but I decided to pass the first couple of time that I see it. Anyway, fast forward a couple of days and Taco Mac on the East West Connector, Austell, GA, USA has it on tap. I order one and ultimately find out it is $9.50 for the small pour! TERRIBLE value. Anyway, back to the beer….
…pour is slightly clouded and is on the orange side of things rather than the paler yellow or golden. Thinnish head but it does linger and leave some wispy lace.
Some funk, a little sweetnesa and a slightly grapefruit based finis make up the beer, and it comes together quite well and nicely for the style. However, it’s definitely nothing special and the price for the draft version of this was absolutely, daylight robbery. The bottle at $7.99 would be pretty good value.
In short, drink this at home (or at least not somewhere that’s charging $9.50 for a small pour) and you’ll get a decent example of style that is refreshing and tasty. If you pay $9.50 for approx. 12 oz then you’ll most likely feel ripped-off.
