Pretty Things Jack D’Or

Pretty Things Beer and Ale Project Inc., Westport, MA
Jack D’Or
Saison Americain
6.5% ABV
22 oz. bottle into tulip glass

Another out-of-state jaunt made our beer room a little richer. We picked up this particular bottle in Cambridge, MA, at a gourmet store called Cardullo’s near Harvard Square. As pretentious as that combination sounds–microbrews, caviar, cheese, tea, and Harvard– the store kept us happily occupied for more than a half an hour.

A perfect sipping beer over a game of cards. The up-front citrusy scent anti-foreshadows a bitter finish. Both “americain” and “saison” are apt descriptors of the style. Overall, a pleasant but not entirely memorable beer we’re happy we tried.
