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.

Pours a slightly hazy yellow from the can with dissipating white head that leaves good lace. Aroma of nice farmhouse yeast with lemon esters, hay, and slight wheat. Taste follows with a hint of earth and funk, slight bitterness. Bubbly carbonation, solid for a canned beer.

Pours hazy gold into a Sam glass. Bright white head with good retention recedes leaving scant sheets. Lemon and yeast aromas. Sweet hay and yeast upfront turning to bitter earth and lemon in the medium length finish.

Let me start by saying that I donít care for saison. Draft. Straw yellow with a white head. Sweet, funky, yeastie straw aroma. Clove, yeast and dried banana flavors with a bitter finish.

ross (2078) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - MAR 9, 2014
Can. Yellow color with a white head. Fruity, malty, some grassy notes and a little bit of hops in the nose. Taste is smooth refreshing, and very easy to drink. Great beer for the 70 degree weather we have been experiencing. I liked it.

bowtiebeer (4) - California, USA - MAR 9, 2014 does not count
very refreshing. Have not tried from the can yet, only draft. A nice Belgian aroma. Maybe a tad too carbonated.

The appearance has a hazy golden yellow colored body with a half fingerís worth of white foamy head that dies at a moderate pace leaving some clingy foamy lacing. Carbonation is seen rising fairly rapidly. The smell is sweet yeasty with a decent amount of peppery spiciness that combines throughout the beer. The taste has a nice sweet yeastiness enters in with the peppery spiciness that ends up having a sweet peppery aftertaste with the same finish. The palate has a light to medium body, fairly sessionable, carbonation is good for the style and for me as thereís a moderate amount lightly hitting my mouth and tongue. Overall, I say this is a solid saison that Iím glad I tried and will have no problem finishing off this sixpack.

cheap (4002) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2014
From a can. OK, overall not too bad, does have this bright astringent bitterness but it all seems to be surrounded in good co2 fun. Odd mild aroma of wet farmhouse.

BMMillsy (1318) - Florida, USA - MAR 6, 2014
Had this from a can to frosted mug at Fremont Diner in Sonoma. Pours hazy yellow with a fluffy white head. Aroma of cardamom, some grassy hop, hay, a hint of light fruit sweetness. Flavor follows the aroma closely with lots of hay flavor, sweetness and honey, spice like cardamom, and a nice light slightly banana-like yeastiness. Light bodied, but creamy with medium plus plus carbonation. Overall I enjoyed this beer a lot. Surprised at its relatively low score.
