COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
You might not expect a Saison in winter. But the enemy didn’t expect Washington to cross the icy Delaware, either. Expectations be damned, we say. We’re sneaking up on winter with a boatload of bravado and this Belgian-style farmhouse ale. Dry hopped with whole organic cardamom pods, our Saison has an assertive spiciness. In your face, winter.

On draft. It pours a light yellow with a white head. The aroma is very floral with menthol, lemon pepper, clove, a little banana and gum. The flavor is the same. Lots of menthol. Nice one.

mrmartin (707) - New York, New York, USA - APR 13, 2013
Clear straw with big quickly disappearing head. A Strongly spiced nose. Light sticky body. Tons of spice. Way too much spice (cardamom?) Bitter finish.. Off-balance in a bad way.

jredmond (5673) - Manhattan, New York, USA - APR 11, 2013
Courtesy of Brendan, shared with Andrew and streets. Pours a cloudy yellow body with creamy white head that settles nicely into thick lacing. Aroma is lots of banana, spice, grass, and faint urine. Mouthfeel is medium to light with notes of banana and clove dominating; additional flavors of spice, grass, light hop, and a vague floralness.

can. hazy gold with a large fluffy white head. bright herbal citrus nose. the flavor is highly spiced and minty, like wintergreen, with vanilla sweetness. light body. don’t like the minty. i love most of 21A beers but i’m still haunted by their "spring saison" or "saison" or whatever the hell it was from last summer, when i forced an entire 64oz growler of lavender infused soap down my gullet because i just can’t bring myself to pour out a beer(i now know that it is the dreaded cardamom spice). this is just too uncomfortably close to that concoction. in fact, i think it is the same stuff. got me twice now.
