You might not expect a Saison in winter. But the enemy didnít expect Washington to cross the icy Delaware, either. Expectations be damned, we say. Weíre 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.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. can from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a hazy yellow color with a large styrofoam like white head. The nose has a little sulfur, Belgian yeast, and sweet cardamom notes. The flavor is spicy and sweet with heavy cardamom and a slight bitterness on the back end. A little dense and clunky on the tongue for the style. Short to medium finish. Decent.

hfmejias (872) - Dover, Delaware, USA - MAR 9, 2013
12 Fl. Oz. Can. Poured a cloudy golden with a decent white head. Aroma of cardamom, other spices and citrus fruits and wine. Taste is quite spicy, mostly cardamon, some wine notes a bit dry but very nice.

ACHops (799) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 8, 2013
12 oz can. Pours cloudy bright yellow with thin white lingering head. Aroma is big lemon and earthy spice notes. Taste is dry golden malt, with cardamom and pepper on the finish. Punchy and bracing. Easily one of the driest beers Iíve ever had. Big Saison.

Light golden with a slight haze, with a white head that recedes all too quickly. Aroma has a lot of spice up front, both of the yeast and spice-cabinet variety. The label says dry hopped with cardamom...not sure what cardamom smells like but Iíd like to believe this is it in spades, with an almost nutmeg and grass tone in the nose as well. Flavor is light and crisp, though eccentric with a full palate. Earthy spice and nuttiness with a touch of allspice and nutmeg, with a pale malty grainy backbone, gentle saison-yeast sweetness, and a lasting though tamed bitterness. Tastes very belgian, which means I donít know how to articulate the fact I enjoyed this brew.

Bule (920) - California, USA - MAR 5, 2013
12oz can. Pours a very pale yellow like a wit with a frothy head that dissipates quickly.

keepersj12 (2786) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Something about a saison in a can doesnít 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.

evanlarkin (307) - Northfield, Minnesota, USA - MAR 1, 2013
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

monk191 (1126) - California, USA - FEB 26, 2013
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 (5136) - 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.
