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.

bhensonb (10731) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 29, 2013
Can from Malt & Vine. Pours a light lemon yellow with a fizzy/creamy 3 finger white head. Aroma for some reason reminds me of thanksgiving turkey. Not necessarily dressing either. Maybe the gravy. Can that be cardamom? Well they do put it in stuffing. Strong aroma. Med body. Flavor is sort of earthy citrus. Certainly dry. Decently bitter. This is whacked in a good way.

Light to medium sweet flavor with more white bread, herbs, white sugar. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Clean finish, more herbs and white bread. Quite clean overall. Some grassy hop bitterness. Solid saison.

Can. Poured a clear yellow color with an average to large frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate citrus and ginger, yeast aroma. Medium body with a thin smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sour citrus flavor with a medium sour & sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectation where met.

Travlr (9998) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 11, 2013
Clear golden color, medium white head. Aroma has lots of spice. Taste is spiced straw, fruit. I think the spice is trying to substitute for the saison character.
