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.

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.

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.

12 oz. can from Total Wine, Virginia Beach, VA. Yellowish-orange pour with a frothy white head. Aroma of leather, ripe banana, and lemon zest. Taste is light citrus peel, clove, faint bubblegum, and sweat. Finish is clean and not too sweet. A good saison.

On tap at YardHouse, meridian. Hazy golden. Soapy off white head. Mild wheat malt aroma. Big time sharp slickness. Dry hopped with cardamom pods. Seriously !

Appearance - light golden, crystal. Palate - light palate but satisfying. Taste earthy, has a very light sour taste. Good seasonal. Recommend try.

12 oz can to tulip. Pours a hazy yellow, with a big white head that persists and leaves minimal lacing. Nose is all cardamom, and the taste follows the nose. Mouthfeel is thin, with a clean finish. If you like cardamom, as I do, youíll like this. Very different, and pretty dang good.

From can to pint glass. Spice and sweet wheat malt aroma. Hazy pale straw with a white head that collars. Taste is spicy and medium mouthfeel.

I looked at the rating but I bought anyway bc I havenít had a saidon on over a month. I now know what cardamom is because the nose is bursting with it. So much in fact that I can get too much else. Pours slightly hazed golden with white head. Taste is largely cardamom, with pepper, fruity esters, a bit of spice sting in the throat. Too much spice for me.

12 ounce can, canned on 11/14/13. Served in a tulip, the beer pours a hazy gold color with an inch white head. Thereís a small amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like peppery spice, cardamom, bready/grainy malt, and some citrus. It tastes like wheat malt, lemon peel, clove, cardamom, peppery spice and some earthy/floralness. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, itís smooth and easy enough to drink. I liked this brew, itís worth trying if youíve never had it before.
