Baby Tree (Pretty Things)

Quadruple awesomeness. Then they take an already plummy beer and add a bunch of plums to the mash: brilliant! Great, now I am starting to sound like Dan.

Baby Tree (Pretty Things) = 7/10
Ratebeer 3.55 95th  percentile
Beer Advocate 86%

This just reeks of every kind of dark fruit you can name. And the best game you can name, is the good old hockey game. Mix this with a chewy, slick sip, low carbonation and you might swear it was a homemade rum pot. Yet you are confused: where did this herbal, mineral and alcohol warmth come from? Not sure, but it is not going away.

Aftertaste +1
Alcohol Content +1 9%

Appearance +1 (always great art and description)

Pretty Things Jack D'or

Pretty Things Jack D'or
label states 'American Saison'

Ratebeer 3.61 91st percentile
Beer Advocate A-

Taste +3

The nose was built on a lemon yeast, yeast and light fruit tartness with spices. The taste was the same. With lots of carbonation the mouthfeel was creamy with an abundance of tropical fruits, lemons and spices.

Aftertaste +2

It was slightly dry with a lemony tart, yeasty coating.

Alcohol Content +1 6.4%
Value 0

I know a good saison when I taste one. This was tasty but quite average; certainly not a good as a Dupont.
Ingame Enhancement 0

No gaming tonight, I just sat on the couch and watched my monthly hour of TV. According to Manswers, fishing is the sport most likely to kill you. I don't feel that I am missing out by not watching TV.

Overall 5/10

I was an average saison style; tart, lemony, yeast and tropical fruit. It takes a lot to get me excited about a beer; this wasn't it.
