COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"A true seasonal beer, as refreshing as it should be! Taste it in the summer, sitting at a terrace table Ö " Originally, season beer was a beer brewed before the summer and intended for summer-season farmhands. It had low alcohol content and a marked bitterness that made it really refreshing. We wanted to offer a truly seasonal Season with production limited in time. As Laurent Agacheís

sayravai (4677) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 4, 2010
(Bottled, 5.0% ABV) Hazy yellow-golden with a small, but firm and lacy head. Aroma of flowery-herby hops, pale malt, some earthy tartness. Flavor is pale-malty, slightly papery and acidic, flowery, slighly ashy, moderately grassy-bitter. Light to medium body, medium to high carbonation, reasonably refreshing. Quite good in its "mild and dry, pilsenery saison" class, but I prefer the more fruity/earthy/complex ones. 3543

Man, so many saisons in my backlog. Nice head on this one. Lovely thyme, chamomile, juniper and coconut aroma. A pleasure to smell. Dryish, yeasty, and a touch flat in the mouth, some hay and a corresponding pricklyness to go with it.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 21, 2010
750 ml bottle- found at Abes In pa I think. Pours a nice mostly clear (first pour) light golden with a big rocky head and nice lacing. Aroma is earthy, light delicate doughy pils malts, some fresh bread at first, with a light spicy earthy salty phenolic (seems like a great start), light pils malt, hay and grass and light hops- as it warms more black pepper comes out and even some green bell pepper- this is where it gets weird... Flavor starts out ok- doughy malts, some spice, phenolics, pepper, then gets a touch crackery, thins out a bit in the middle and continues as it warms, with more green bell pepper spicyness, grass, toast, light plastic pheniolics, earth, leather, - fairly dry but gets a bit thin, lemon pepper and green bell pepper bordering on jalepeno towards the end- fairly dry but not real body at the end to back it up- gets crackery and thin.

Bottled 75cl. Hazy yellow color, medium white head. Aroma is a bit dusty like a saison, quite fruity of some citrus and elderflower, which gives the typical aroma to the beer. Bit bitter taste, quite dry, yeasty. Decent fruity saison.
