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.

12-oz can. Pours a slightly hazy medium gold with a loose and sudsy whitish head. Grassy sweet nose, a little toasted cracker there. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Lots of white pepper and wet grass on the mid palate. Not much else. White peppery finish.

60minuteman (769) - Frazer, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Aroma of lemon, orange, wheat, coriander and hop. Color of cloudy yellow, thick white foam. Average duration. Taste of lemon, wheat, hop. Aftertaste of coriander, pepper, and burnt malt. Slight. Foam is gone at this point. Some lacing.

Cybercat (3341) - Georgia, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Comes out of the tap a slightly hazy solar yellow with a thick, fine-bubbled, off-white head that leaves some generous lacing. Malty aroma has a coriander overtone and a hint of yeast. Flavor has malty and coriander notes with a subtle fruity undertone, mainly apple with some banana. Smooth texture is fairly firm and quite fizzy. Sip it any time of year!

JK (4475) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - FEB 17, 2013
From a can. Hazy yellow color. Some yeast and spice aroma. A little wheat in the flavor with more yeast, but this is a thin and watery saison, low in quality, complexity, and flavor.

pineypower (2516) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Can thanks to Dmac. Pours out a vitamin piss color with lots of carbonation and a small white head. Aroma is vegetable soup mix, some fruity yeasty notes, lemon peel, light spice. Taste is some nice light citrus notes, pepper, dry earthy notes, spice, light bitterness and some yeasty dryness on the finish.

bth122 (1269) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Draft @ walnut grove. Light golden color. Medium full head. Big spicy aroma of cardomon, nutmeg, coriander, pepper. Light sweetness. Light body. Ave carbonation. Belgium yeast notes. Dry. A spicy tasty brew. Good.

Aquilo (541) - Berkeley, California, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Pale yellow, slightly cloudy, with a little bit of white head. The farmhouse yeast can be very off-putting if this beer is warm. If served quite cold, the aroma is pleasant: grass, hay, and nectarines. Flavor is mildly bitter. Very refreshing. Overall, this is a decent beer, but I was hoping for more.

PhillyCraft (3253) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Can, poured hazy golden i think, light lace and head. Notes of cardamom, clove, lemons, belgian spice, nutmeg, and light hops. Too many spices going on for me. Just ok.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 16/20
Aubrey (3433) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - FEB 13, 2013
Flavorful saison. Spicy and aromatic notes of white pepper, perfume and tea. Mildly sweet malt flavors of white cake and dough. Yeast esters of lemon and clove. Bold amount of bitterness.
