COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
THE ALE: This smooth ale tastes citrusy with yeasty notes and a hint of peppery spice. Its dry finish and mild carbonation make it perfect for pairing with grilled chicken, rich fish dishes, and cheeses like camembert and brie. THE STORY: Philosophizer was a common term used to describe Del. He often came up with the perfect solution to a complex problem while drinking a beer and watching the sunset. Donít be surprised when you enter into deep philosophical debates after opening a Philosophizer. Just pop one open, pour, sip, and ponder.

I love the way it looks, it's aroma is lacking. Has a nice substance with a touch of candied malt and sugar. Decent ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The aroma is yeasty grassy and malty. The appearance is right for the style as is the palate. The taste is like the aroma. Overall this is fine.

glennmastrange (2650) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - APR 17, 2015
Bottle. Grainy malts, lemony hops and dough for the yeast, with pepper in the background. Color is large, frothy, white with good lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is medium hazy amber. Flavor starts moderately acidic, and finishes moderately acidic and lightly bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a fizzy carbonation. A refreshing beer, but just an okay Saison.

chinchill (4204) - South Carolina, USA - APR 6, 2015
Large shared bottle. Very effervescent with a relatively large, semi-durable white head. Very low funk for style. Nicely fruity. Lively, crisp and dry. O: great choice as a session saison.
