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.

Can courtesy of Doodler (thanks Scott) poured a hazy yellow with a lasting creamy white head. Aromas of cardomom, straw, yeast and light citrus. Palate was light bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of straw, cardomom asnd light citrus with a smooth dry lingering cardomom finish.

caralkaline87 (435) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 23, 2013
Pours a clear golden-blonde with a quick soft white head. Nose is fairly strong with lots of orange, coriander, and a touch of tartness. Flavor is a bit less potent and definitely a lot less sweet, with the more tart and bitter aspects of the ale coming out harder. Backside is a little too bitter for the style. Not overall bad, but I’ve definitely had better saisons.

Very grassy and lemony. Hides the alcohol very well for a light style at 6.2%. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

deekyn (1441) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 1, 2013
A-murky wicker yellow with good head and mediocre lacing. S-lots of cloves and some orange up front like expected in saisons. Some vinegar, banana, mild soap and grapefruit thereafter. Cinnamon and lemon grass or hay as well. Slight egg funk. M-light bodied and very effervescent. Good carbonation and slightly sticky. T-lots of lemon and citric acid with some barnyard during tangy opening. Cloves and varied autumnal spices. A little medicinal starting in the middle all the way to a long dry and bitter end. O-simple and to the point. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Leighton (16286) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2013
Can shared at Bruce’s 30th Birthday Bash - CBC Clerkenwell, London. Thanks to The Peter! Pours clearish yellow with a fine, white foam head. Herbal nose, lots of white bread and dough. Light to medium sweet flavor with more white bread, herbs, white sugar. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Clean finish, more herbs and white bread. Quite clean overall. Some grassy hop bitterness. Solid saison.

Rating no 125 for this beer, I’ve had the pleasure of working through a fresh sixer of cans. Most noticeable in the nose is the heavy cardamom, but there are other lighter spicy and floral notes as well, over a yeasty golden ale base. Pours lemon yellow with a creamy bright white head. Taste also strongest on cardamom, medium bitterness and low sweetness undercut by the herbal/weedy overtones and mild astringency, love the aggressive spiciness and toned-down mouthfeel (not overly aggressive carbonation, more of a medium body). Some lemony citrus and cream notes, smooth and mildly yeasty finish. Alcohol not a big factor in the flavor. Has good repeatability, really enjoy it as a daily saison.

Nate (3827) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2013
From can. Floral and fragrant, spicy with cardamon and allspice notes. Orange and orange peel with a little vanilla. Medium golden clear with thin white lacing head. Medium body with heavy carbonation. Starts sweet and spicy with cardamon and bitter orange peel. Bitter spice and hop finish with carbonic tang. Lasting bitterness with orange zest sweetness.

coolfunnj (330) - Margate City, New Jersey, USA - APR 24, 2013
aroma leaves a peppery and spicy impression with a little funky yeast as well...cloudy yellow with half inch white pillowy head leaves some lacing not too much...taste..would be perfect on a 90 degree evening if we ever get another one around here..lemon cough drop,pepper,a hint of mint..light bodied and like seltzer water on the palate..overall..i like saisons especially as hot weather beers so im a bit partial but this tastes good to me
