COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

ffbot (331) - Oakland, California, USA - MAR 18, 2016
Pour is a distracting hazy gold with a thin tiny head. Smell is lemons and leather, an odd mix. Throw in some yeasty malty numbness and some barf. Taste is subtle to the point of tasteless. uh, no?

12oz can 3/17/16 (Jewel Mix A six)-42į in Tulip-Pours hazy yellow with a medium white head. Aroma of spices, yeast, and citrus. Taste of the same with a metallic back end. This light bodied brew is not very good and not sure if it is the beer or the contract brewery.

Frank (3957) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 16, 2016
This isnít terrible at first but really loses it towards the end. Itís cloudy blond w/ a huge, foamy head. Thereís a pleasant slightly earthy/cobwebby yeast character along w/a bit of banana in the nose but itís got a sort of metallic bitterness thatís hard to ignore. This is slightly on the sweet side w/ a reasonable juicy texture. It would be drinkable but for that metallic not I mentioned. Oh well. Plenty of good saisons out there.

thegreenrooster (3939) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 5, 2016
Pour is a hazy straw yellow with a small white head. Aroma is pretty much all yeast esters with a decent helping of banana and clove. Flavor is a ok fruit and the yeast esters kind of dissappear in the flavor. Finish does have some spice left on the tongue. The aroma was fine but the flavor left something to be desired. It was a bit watery and the farmhouse flavor only played a minor part.
