A classic farmhouse style ale brewed with malted barley and wheat malts accenting an artful blend of sweet orange blossom honey with the spice of rye. An inspiring ale that paints the picture of tradition and flavorful creativity.

On tap at Colorado Plus. Orange and clear appearance. A crisp and dry saison with citrus zest, light peppery spice, bread, light rye and mild bitterness. Medium bodied with a touch of honey-like malt on the finish. Refreshing and surprisingly well done.

On tap at Stapleton Tap House September 19th. Pours a cloudy amber with big head. Aroma of sour fruit, horse blanket. Medium carbonation and big mouthfeel. Flavors of barley malts, apricot, and some cherry juice and funky herb flavors. Overall bold and flavorful with a tab more body than many saisons.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2013 2000th rating . Needed something special but just couldn’t think of what to drink and then an auspicious event occurred. I am visiting the Bier Station, a new bar in KC where all the hairy guys seem to be going, for the first time with my awesome friends the Blacks (Lora and Billiam) and of course Abbey. Its one of those store slash bar with nothing spectacular on tap but solid stuff. But I look around the bottles, eh nothing special, get a beer on tap that I am only mildly interested in drinking. As I walk away I decide to just look through the random boxes sitting around and what do I find, well stupid a bottle of this. I have wanted to drink this for a while but I refuse to pay the ridiculous store price for a Crabtree beer. Come on, it’s Crabtree. But why do I want to drink it, as I said its Crabtree. Well, the beer combines two of my favorite things beer and art. I mean how could it take so long to make a saison named after Cezanne. It’s so simple. And that answers why I want to drink the beer, still not worth the price. But at Bier Station tthe mark up to drink in store is very small. So the beer meets my desire for the beer but also more importantly a good deal.

Beer.... hmm, good stuff. Pours thick golden, no clarity, medium thick head. Aroma is beautiful layer of brett with natural peach skin. It’s hard to separate where one starts and the other ends. It’s all natural and lively and awesome. Flavor is less rich, fine but kind of empty compare to flavor. Slightly fruit Belgian ale, not much brett, no sourness. Just a bit disappointing but fine. Full and soft mouthfeel, almost like hairy peach skins tickling my cheeks.

On tap at Freshcraft. Orange color, looks decent enough. Smell is very floral, not bad but odd, not impressed. The flavor was unlike any saison I’ve had, floral, perfume, oranges, it was like something from Bath and Bodyworks was poured into the beer, awful. So glad I tried this on tap as the bottle price is ridiculous and it was not a good saison at all. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 12-04-2011 23:38:12

Bottle on my balcony wth Eddie, John, and Ryan. Pour is a bright orange with a small white head that quickly dissipated. Smell is orange zest, light spice, muscat, apricot, and sweet honey. Taste is spicy yeast, orange, white grape skin, light peach, and a hint of biscuit. Mouthfeel is medium, along with the carbonation. Another good beer from Crabtree; they continue to impress me.

Tap at Avery’s Sour Fest. Pours hazy orange with a medium, fizzy white head, medium retention with light lacing. Aroma is oak, peach, apricot and pear, cereal and biscuit malt, faint hops and Pinot notes. Flavor is malt forward with fruity esters, Pinot notes and oak, light hops and bitterness with light alcohol notes and a dry finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

Hmmm....what to say about this? Good carbonation and pretty heavy lacing. Slightly cloudy golden light orange. Nose is funky, but not in a particularly good way and gets more so as it warms. More stinky than belgiany. Orange blossom..I know it’s honey but the orange is only maybe barely there. I know-I lived among orange groves for a number of years. Slightly lemony sour but all front palate with nothing to round it out. Mehh...save your $.

Pour out of 750 mL bottle is hazy orange with white head, aroma has nice notes of orange, sweet grape, hints of peach, goes into very floral and earth notes with a slight hint of earth, touch of sweet biscuit. Nice smelling! Taste is very nice sweet orange, nice floral honey notes, touch of caramel, biscuit, and slight earthy notes, finishing fairly sweet, with a ncie funky and slightly tart finish.

750 ml. bottle. Pours an enormous, lasting white head, with some lacing over a very slightly hazy gold (SRM 5) body....nose is cereal, light apple, touch of pear, bit of allspice,....taste is cereal, light floral tones, hint of lemon, finishing with a bit of barnyard funk and light bitterness.....mouth feel light of medium, carbonation high. This is obviously a Saison. It is nicely balanced, and has enough aroma and flavor complexity to be above average. The funk was a pleasant surprise, and the spice of the rye is nicely present. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7
