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.

Pours clear gold with a small white head. Aroma is funky, citrus, earthy and yeast. Taste is sweet with a tart finish. Light bodied with thin texture and bitter finish. Nice, a solid go to saison

Draft @ The Ale House in Amesbury. Smells and tastes of yeast and citrus with spicy pepper. Body is light-medium with a strong, effervescent carbonation. Cardamom pods uh?? Herbal and Earthy hops linger throughout. A dry, spicy finish. An affordable option for saison in a can or on draft. Not amazing but decent. It will not blow you away but still some nice flavors.

Bruce’s Birthday Bash at the Craft Clerkenwell. Thanks to the old boy Bruce. Light haze on this gold beer. Little white head. Light dry palate. Airy. Mild fine carbonation. Pronounced herby character with a trace of citrus underneath. Dry finish with a little pine. Okay.

12 oz can. Pours cloudy yellow color with white head. Aromas of cardamom, orange peel, dough and spices. Similar flavors, overspiced for my liking. Medium body with lively carbonation.

Can from a sixer purchased at Aficionado’s. Clear yellow pour with a huge white head. Herbal nose some malt and funk. Malty flavor with some funk and lemongrass along with a more explicit herbal character of sage before a grassy hop finish. Very nice.

scarletfire65 (937) - Rockaway Park, New York, USA - MAR 12, 2013
Can, at home. Hazy yellow pour. Aroma of cardamom, chamomile, funk, horesblanket. The flavor is spicy, white pepper, cardamom, orange, with some crackery grains on the back end. Crisp dry finish. A bit too much on the cardamom.

Hmm where to start with this one. I don’tt like artificially spices saisons. Anyways, this one poured a hazy daraker yellow color with a white head. Aroma was lots of cardamom and ginger, light fruit peel and yeast too. Flavor was again cardamom, light vanilla and then lemon zest on the finish. Not very good.
