While Four Winds is known for making relatively high alcohol beer they have decided to go against the wind and brew low ABV, sessionable beers in the Notus Series. La Maison is a table saison that is brewed using wild yeast. Coming in bomber sized bottles this seasonal beer offering is golden in colour, well clouded and is topped with a finger of head which settles rather quickly leaving light lacing behind. An aroma of orange peel, pineapple and light pepper spice, plus a slight yeasty character gives this beer a big nose but in a very sessionable manner. The body is light with a big carbonation factor. The carbonation gives an initial sharp, lightly sour tone that builds into a nice wild yeast character and fruit notes. In the finish the pineapple flavour takes control with a nice, fresh citrus note that finishes with a slight lingering sweetness. The body of this beer is very light but the fruit flavours add up nicely. La Maison is a tasty and easy drinking summer saison.
