COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Taking a cue from a home brew recipe from Mr. Jumpers Home Brew club, we gave it our own spin and came up with the Sunrise Saison. Our first foray into Belgian styles of beer, saisons were pale ales originally brewed in the farmhouses of Wallonia, the French speaking region of Belgium. Giving it our own twist, we’ve added 150 lbs of rhubarb and 250 lbs of whole strawberries. The result is a light pink hue and flavors that wonderfully compliment the natural tartness of a traditional saison.
Malts: Pale, White wheat, Vienna, Acidulated
Hops: Nugget

Six pack from Julios. I know I’ve tried this before - surprised I hadn’t rated it. Anyhoo... here goes: pours out a slightly reddish light golden color. Thin head. Aroma is fruity and yeasty. Flavor is very fruity, perhaps a bit on the sweet side. Strawberry and rhubarb are evident. Slightly perfumy. Slightly tart with a classic Belgian yeast character. Not your usual saison.

Bottled at Basque, Gothenburg. Clear pale golden, small head. Aroma of bubblegum and artificial strawberry. Super sweet, sloppy body. Butter and esters. Just one of those beers where not a single parameter is right.

@ munken i Norrköping. Svagt lukt av jordgubb. Saison smaken försvinner lite. Rabarbern kommer i eftersmaken.

smells like strawberry ice cream though you can detect the Belgian qualities nice aroma..has that pale yellow saison background but a little more amber and red than usual thin pure white head..tastes like a pretty good saison with over the top fruit flavors..interesting twist on things but not the smoothest blend..feels like it should light and smooth on the palate tingly carbonation..overall a nice dessert or nightcap beer but I wouldn’t want to do a six pack of them it’s a good idea just not well balanced between the saison and the fruitiness..probably would’ve been better as a straight up saison

Bottle. Nose of dusty pale malt and a little strawberry-rhubarb action. Lightly hazy golden with a steady stream of carbonation and a rocky white head. Taste is tart and sweet, strawberries and rhubarb but they’re both about equal with the lemony-peachy base. No big spice here, neither from addition nor from the yeast, save a very faint peppery character, and so the style transgression marks this as more of a fruit beer and less of a saison; yet the fruitiness is simply beautiful, very fresh and natural, as if a bit of puree had been added to every bottle. Does not cloy, no sense of alcohol at all, medium body a little slimy, but balanced and refreshing and really a juicy treat!

argo0 (11637) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 12, 2013
12oz bottle. Large white head that leaves nice lacing atop hazy amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, strawberry, some spicy. Taste is moderately sweet, strawberry, some bubblegum, light spicy/pepper. Light-medium body, light stickiness. Much more a fruit beer than a saison.
