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.

Pours a clear golden-blonde with a quick soft white head. Nose is fairly strong with lots of orange, coriander, and a touch of tartness. Flavor is a bit less potent and definitely a lot less sweet, with the more tart and bitter aspects of the ale coming out harder. Backside is a little too bitter for the style. Not overall bad, but I’ve definitely had better saisons.

Poured from the 12oz can into a shaker glass. Pale straw color with a white head. Aroma is wheat and yeast. Flavor is similar with wheat, some yeasty notes, and some spiciness towards the finish. Medium bodied. Decent but the spice note has a bit of an odd flavor.

glennmastrange (2570) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - APR 14, 2016
Tap. Moderate aromas all around with grain and bread for the malt, grass and lemon peel for the hops, musty basement, with faint spice in the background. Head is large, frothy, white with fair lacing and and is mostly diminishing. Color is clear, light amber. Flavor starts faintly sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and lightly to moderately bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery, with a lively carbonation. Smells nice, tastes okay, but still a drinkable Saison.

vadie (1183) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 23, 2016
Jaune pâle avec un grand col blanc. L’arôme des épices et houblon florale. En bouche c’est très facile à boire, avec des épices sec et d’houblon florale qui met la bière en équilibre sans le rendre trop amer pour le style.
