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.

Can from Capone’s. Pours turbid canary golden color with 1-finger white head. Nose is funky pale malt, spicy florals, limey citrus. Tastes dry, floral, and spicy, with coriander ad cardamom notes, limey citrus, and a lot of funky yeasty malt flavor. This one is complex and enjoyable.

Can shared at Bruce’s 30th Birthday Bash - CBC Clerkenwell, London. Thanks to The Peter! Pours clearish yellow with a fine, white foam head. Herbal nose, lots of white bread and dough. 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.

Maxbier (142) - Maryland, USA - FEB 6, 2014
Pour from a can; straw color, slightly hazy, big white head. Bready sweet aroma with a hint of sour and almonds (i.e., mild nutty aroma). With the first sip the initial sensation is the carbonation, which quickly gives way to a pleasant lemony sourness. The finish begins with a hint of hopyness and quickly changes to dried sour fruits. Coats the mouth and results in a very lingering finish (for me that was 5+ minutes). Very nice saison.

b33r (668) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - FEB 14, 2014
Light yellow color with white head and nice lacing. Aroma is huge and piercing. Lots of perfume, spices, yeast, and grass. Smells like a bouquet of flowers. Flavor is sweet at first and finishes earthy and yeasty with light malts. Very different and pretty good overall.
