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.

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

maekchu (3361) - Hirakata, JAPAN - FEB 23, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2015 Can from Village Wine & Spirits in Athens. Cardamom, honey, some funk, and some other stink. Clear straw, thin filmy white head. Sweet & bitter in equal degrees / in mid palate, the funk rises into the sinuses / just a touch cloying in the finis, along with tiny bitter traces. Thin-medium body. Cardmom is interesting here (instead of coriander); it blends nicely with the farmhouse character.

poisoneddwarf (2247) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - FEB 22, 2013
12 oz can. Pours hazy pale yellow with a collapsing white head. Aroma is extremely fragrant--I get floral notes (cardamom?), fruit (melon), a hint of funk. Taste is lightly sweet, spicy (clove), a bit sour, savory and finishes dry and lightly bitter. Palate is a little thin. Itís tasty and interesting but itís missing something.

Tap: hazy light yellow, thin white head. Wheat and clove nose. Flavor starts weizen-like with wheat, clove, a little bubblegum, honey and banana, then moves into a grassy dry finish. I liked most parts of this beer. It was a bit overly dry at the finish and I was hoping for some yeasty flavors to come through, still makes for good drinking.

Pour of hazy yellow gold with a nice white head. Aroma of big spice with hints of wheat and banana. Initial taste of sweet banana that moves into a spicy wheat of light pepper and clove. Med light body that is smooth with a sweet then bitter med linger of that same coriander spice. Over all good beer that leaves its mark of that sneak up spice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aarond (150) - Wilmington, North Carolina, USA - FEB 20, 2013
Bottle. Pours a golden yellow with a thin white head. Decent clarity. Aroma is spicy, cardamom, yeast, and grassy hops. Taste isnít as spicy as the aroma, notes of cardamom, yeast, fruity esters. Quick, dry finish. Medium light body. Decent carbonation.
