COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our rich and refreshing Saison fashionably suited the Bad Water identity by complexly adding a new age splash to this traditional style. The dynamic experience of our Saison is deeply rooted in our coveted recipe, developed with equal blend of art and science. Subtle peppery notes over a boatsful but not overpowering European hop yields a truly dynamic nose. A light grain bill of mostly Pilsner malts against an atypical yeast strain maintains the beers lightness for continued enjoyment with a fortifying flavor.

Drank from 12 oz bottle poured into snifter. Aroma- beautiful aroma of coriander and spice. Very nice. Appearance- golden orange with light carbonation and light heavy. Taste- very clean. Orange zesty with some pepper. Palate- not a overwhelming taste but still nice. Overall- very good and drinkable saison but not enough umph to get higher score

Good well-balanced and refreshing saison with a strong yeast presence, nicely tart bitter finish, and a crisp delivery.

Patrickctenchi (4722) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Bottle: Pours hazy, light amber-brown with a small, off-white head. Peppery, yeasty aroma...light caramel... Taste is yeast, fruit, grainy caramel malt. A little dusty &musty...mild peppery spice. A little plain, but easy drinking.

shrubber85 (8836) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 18, 2015
Bottle. Musty yeast, berry-orange malt, and straw aroma. Dark golden yellow with large head. Lightly sweet yeasty strawberry-orange, malt and mildly bitter hay flavor. Light body. Not bad - very fruity.

ttutony (763) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 2, 2015
Light brown with minimal head. Not much to speak of on the aroma, faint grain. Slight spice on the palate. Kind of bland for a saison.

yemenmocha (659) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Very nice appearance with good amber color, slight haze, and generous head that retains well. Nose... hmm... banana bubble gum and a whiff of toast. Palate has a soft, wet cardboard taste, seems undercarbonated, and not much of any flavor in any good direction at all that I can detect. Finish has an off-metal quality to it.

AdamT (247) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 17, 2014
Orange hue, light hazy clarity with mostly diminishing fizzy off-white head. Virtually no lacing. Spice (cinnamon), light citrus, light malt and floral aromas. Heavy spice taste up front with more of a citrus, floral and some light spice finish. Mild carbonation, crisp on the palate.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - OCT 3, 2014
Poured a clear copper color with a thick slightly off white head that had nice retention. Aroma was of soft banana and light grains. Initial flavor had some nice sweet malts to it which was unexpected. Esters were pleasant. Carbonation seemed lacking, but otherwise easy to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz pour into pint glass. Deep copper clear colour. Carbonation was ok, but light for a saison. Slightly spicy and sharp. Taste was not good.. there is a sharp metallic taste that dominates. Medium body. Won’t buy again.

Jrwhitney6 (366) - - AUG 29, 2014
Beer of month club. Pours a very attractive amber color with thin white head into tulip glass. Aroma is of spice, yeast and maybe a little brown sugar. Taste is some caramel and some spice. Not usually a saison fan but this is easy to drink and good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DMLINAZ (326) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Nice, light, respectable saison. From a bottle into a tulip style glass. Super foamy at first. Aroma is light but standard saison, slight fruit. Starts like a wheat with hints of saison and citrus. Ends with a pleasant kick with pepper and light spice notes. Some hops throughout.
