Four Winds Exil D'Eden Apple Oat Saison Review Four Winds & Le Trou du Diable Exil D’Eden Apple & Oat Table Saison Review

The Four Winds Brewing Company has teamed up in a west vs east collaboration with the Le Trou du Diable out of Quebec. Together they brewed an Apple & Oat Table Saison that is packaged in a unique, 500ml, champagne corked bottle. Popping this bottle open (rather difficultly) it pours into the glass as a colour of straw with two and a half fingers of head that settles quick quickly leaving light lacing behind on the glass. An aroma of a traditional french Saison comes through on the nose with hints of fresh green apple. Despite the fact that this beer is a blend of apple juice and beer, the apple tones are subtle and meld well with the Saison tones. Tasting the Exil D’Eden the apple flavour comes through in a much bigger way. The Saison still takes charge with a champagne-like, bubbly sensation on the tongue, light wheat tones, french yeast flavour and a big of extra body from the oat character. At the same time, the apple juice ads a slight tartness to the flavour and mellow sweetness at the same time. The resulting experience from this beer is surprisingly balanced and organic while being simultaneously unique and a little out of left field. If you want to judge it for yourself there is only one task at hand; Pick up a bottle before it is too late and let us know what you think.
