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.

12 oz can. Pours hazy pale yellow with a collapsing white head. Aroma is extremely fragrant--I get floral notes (cardamom?), fruit (melon), a hint of funk. Taste is lightly sweet, spicy (clove), a bit sour, savory and finishes dry and lightly bitter. Palate is a little thin. Itís tasty and interesting but itís missing something.

Can. Bright, piss yellow with a huge, rocky head of bright white foam. Quite an herbal presentation -- lavender, thyme, sage. Very frothy mouthfeel an d a bit of whipped meringue. Quite yummy. (#5478, 3/30/2014)

Poured into samís glass. Golden, cloudy appearance with a small white head with decent retention and lacing. Aroma lemon, grapefruit, pineapple, with a little earthy spicy notes. Taste as i would expect from aroma with a nice tart and bitterness. Overall very happy!

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.
