COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We use only imported Belgian malt, German noble hops and our brouwerij west yeast. We chose not to duplicate the standard "peppery/spicy" saison profile and instead go after bubble gum esters and noble hop aroma. Extra is Bright and malty, with a firm bitterness and a dry finish. Hazy gold in color. 6.5% ALC/VOL and of course no spices added.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - JAN 29, 2013
500ml bottle from Binny’s Plainfield, #483/10000. Pours a hazed, golden colored body with a finger-width, fizzy and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is bubble gum and lightly sweetened, bready pils malts with some florals, a light peppery note, a few esters, and some grass. Flavor is similar. Soft, bready pils malts with a light grass and yeasty pepper alongside some bubble gum, dusty florals, and grains. Finishes dry, grainy, and grassy with some light fruit notes, pepper, and a touch of pils malt. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a soft, somewhat lively, moderate carbonation. Overall, this was pretty solid saison. Dry and easy drinking with a light pils malt backing, some yeasty pepper, florals, grass, and bubble gum. Not bad.

Hazy golden orange pour with abundant rocky white head. Soft aromas of citrus peel, spice and yeasty funk. Flavors follow the aroma, much more yeast and citrus... canned peaches.

Hazy golden yellow with a bright white head, moderate retention and lace. Gentle hop aroma, with bananas and a hint of clove. Taste is similar, with a yeast presence to fill out the profile. Light body lively carbonation, prickly mouthfeel and a crisp finish.

bottle picked up in Seattle. Pours out and nice light gold topped with a long lasting whitehead. Nose is light floral notes sweet malts and some barnyard. Taste is as the nose with some light hops barnyard and some grass. Very low carb but I like a lower carb beer.

hawthorne00 (2253) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 25, 2013
Bottle. Almost clear gold with a white head. Aroma is honeyed and floral with light peach and pear. Some vanilla and clove. Sweet with lemon pudding and yes, bubblegum, with a slightly bitter and still quite spicy (clove, pepper) finish. Finish seems drier after half a bottle or so. Carbonation is on the low side for this sort of thing and a few more bubbles might have helped bring the sweetness back to the pack. Slightly odd take, but interesting and pretty good.
