COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our interpretation of the rustic Wallonian Saison style is a harmonious blend of rustic grains, spicy yeast and unique sauvignon blanc tones. Inviting lemon grass and gooseberry meet peppery spice and fresh grain aromas. Spicy Belgian yeast create a complex yet dry and refreshing canvas with splashes of citrus and stone fruit with a bright tropical white wine finish. Hop bitterness is assertive yet harmonious rounding out slightly tart and refreshing.

kansascityCW (109) - kansas city, Missouri, USA - MAY 20, 2014
Hazy yellow color on the pour. White head that dissipated very quickly. Aroma isnít the best; banana, touch of clove, and unfortunately, some kind of medicinal, almost vegetable smell. Taste is much better. No veggies, but a light pepper flavor, some citrus, clove. Average body that doesnít really pop. Overall Iím a little let down by this beer, but itís not too bad. Would probably pass on purchasing again, even at the $6.19 price I got the bomber for.

Cloudy lemon straw pour which is a little underwhelming. However fresh and vibrant on the palate and what I do like is the dryness on the finish that just lingers.

seymour (1623) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - MAY 11, 2015
Tasted on draft at 2015 St. Louis Microfest in a willi becher glass. It poured a clear yellow colour with sudsy white foam and lasting lace. Husky whole-grains, black pepper, clove, earthy, woodsy, hints of wildflower honey, banana, bubble gum. Subtle yogurty tartness, not quite sour. Light body and strong carbonation.

Shanebrews (217) - Texas, USA - MAY 6, 2015
This was a really underwhelming saisson. The appearance was pale yellow and rather clear, suggesting this may be filtered. The aroma is quite like West Coast pale ale more than a saisson. There is too much hop and not enough spice and the body is too thin to support this dynamic.

Saeglopur (814) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAY 6, 2015

Aroma of Aroma of yeast, citrus, orange, lemongrass, apples, some ripe fruits, some spices.
Tastes of lemon zest, apples, lemongrass, spices, pine needles, pepper, some ripe fruits, some candy.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.

Tasty. A really clean, fresh, perfectly balanced Saison, that isnít the most unique maybe, but very true to the style. Complex and easy drinkable at the same time.

Bottle kindly shared by Werckmeister. Aroma lemony, citrusy, spicy, peppery. Lightly hazy yellow colour. Spicy in taste, lemony, lime, zesty, slightly sour. Also leathery barnyard notes developing towards the finish. Quite typical saison yet a more spicy/lemony twist. Very good. Easily drinkable.

Tap at Bentleys. Pours a cloudy golden orange color with a light white head. Aroma is cold. I'll come back. Flavor is zesty, spicy lemon, citrus, pepper and funk. Finishes slight. Aroma is now a light sweet funk with zesty notes. Easy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
