COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Radius is a saison that harks back to the days when farmhouse beers were session beers, full of flavor, but light enough that you could stick with them all day or all evening. At only 4.8% ABV, Radius is among the lightest beers we’ve ever made, but it’s packed with flavor. Our Belgian yeast strain gives complex spicy notes and some bright orange zest flavors, while Perle and Aurora hops give a zippy bitterness and a pleasant floral aroma. Radius is bone-dry, unfiltered, hoppy, and refreshing, and doesn’t put the hard whammy on us after a glass or two (okay, it’s true - we’re sometimes in the mood for the hard whammy...but not always!).

tlind2 (1078) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 1, 2013
Draught@Brooklyn Brewery. Cloudy, pale golden color, rich white head. Sweet gingery aroma. Spicy flavor with more ginger, banana and coriander. Slightly oily finish. Medium body, medium carbonation. An interesting beer: I would love to give it a try with sushi.

Svesse (5898) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 11, 2013
(Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm, 6 May 2013) Pale yellow colour with frothy, white head. Malty, nose with notes of hay, grass, citrus and hints of spices. Malty, slightly spicy taste with bread, citrus, hints of yeast and a gentle spicy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, quite dry. Refreshing and quite drinkable, but lacking some saison character. More like a kölsch-style saison. Quite nice though.

Butters (3686) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Sampled at the Raleigh Rare and Vintage Festival 2013. Clear golden pour with small ring of offwhite head. Notes of honey and lavender. And I also perceived this as "boozy" despite being not high alcohol. It must have been one of the other ingredients that was throwing me off. I thought "how is this supposed to be sessionable?".
