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.

12oz can. Pours a very pale yellow like a wit with a frothy head that dissipates quickly.

Something about a saison in a can doesn’t feel right. This pours a straw yellow with a thin white head. The aroma has Belgian spice, some orange, grass,. The flavor has the same but is overpowered by the cardamon. Dry and a bit thin.

Pours a crisp, clear straw yellow. Smell is lightly malty, with a bit of peppery spice. Taste is dry and spicy, clear notes of cardamom. The finish is nicely peppery and fairly bitter. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not one of 21st Amendments best. Pours a boring clear dark yellow with a light white head. Smell is of cheap champagne, a little bit of vinegar. Taste is more like a common lager then a saison. Boring. Had on tap at EJ Phair. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

FROTHINGSLOSH (4918) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 25, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2014 Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a very pale yellow color with an enormous foamy white head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was dryish egg whites, a touch of sulfur and citrus. The flavor was dry and chalky with notes of citric acid and Windex. Long dry chalk and Windex finish. Light to medium body. Not good.

Bottle @ Bruce’s birthday tasting. Cheers to the man himself! The pour’s light gold with a small head. The aroma’s brett, light cheese, graham cracker, dusty attic and moldy grape. Similar flavors. Plenty of pillowy brett. Marshmallow. Musty grape. Soft citrus. Lightly dry finish. Farmhouse yeast. Light body, active carbonation. Nice brett profile, but a bit simple. OK.

Poured from a 12 ounce can. The nose is very spicy. Sweet malts, spicy yeast, some tannins. Overall a nice Saison.

Can at Bruce’s B’day at the Craft. Colour is cloudy piss color. Nose is oily lemon, sweet and sugary. Bit of farmyard and metallic. Taste is sweet lemon, light farmyard, lime, very light but with an oily texture.

Can at Bruce’s 30th celebrations, 08/02/13, thanks to Peter for sharing this one. Hazed pale golden with a thin white head that clears to bubbles at the edge. Nose is spice, herb, grass, lemon. Taste comprises pale malt, yeast, citrus, spice, a little less depth than the nose suggested. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, dry in the finish. Ok - drinkable stuff but far from being a great saison.

Slight sour aroma. Mild on the palate. A light version of a Saison aka Farmhouse Ale. Pretty easy to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
