A tribute to the highly drinkable ""every day"" beers from French-speaking Belgium. Contains Belgian two-row pale malt and 7% wheat. This beer is lightly filtered with an earthy, spicy hop character from imported Styrian Goldings hops and a beautiful rich creamy head from the wheat. Dry quenching finish achieved by use of the traditional sour mash process

hopscotch (10265) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 20, 2003
Sparkling clear, very light, straw-colored beer. The quickly disappearing head leaves fair lacework. A mild brew in both aroma and flavor. A touch buttery with hints of butterscotch and grass. Light-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Call it a Saison if you like, but to me it tastes and feels like any other mild British style brew. Absolutely not spectacular. Refreshing, though. Brewed to be enjoyed during the hot Summer months.

Minimal aroma, small head. Good color. Stays bitter the whole time. Overall a mild beer.

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - AUG 1, 2003
Light brown to off-white in color. Wheat is noticable both in flavor and aroma. Kind of thin and not a very good finish, no real flavor.

legion242 (2343) - Richardson, Texas, USA - JUL 29, 2003
Pale straw lored with a nose of pear. Not stellar. Slight, slight banana. Some grass. Sorta "kolsch"-ish and that is nod good for this style. Lacks any spice.

Somebody wrote that this beer tasted similar to Heineken - I agree, but I think it is on the south side of Heineken. Not terrible, but I dove head first into a barrel for my Fountain of Life and regreted it. A case of it would have been nice, but a barrel - hoy!

beerguy101 (5340) - Newark, California, USA - JUL 28, 2003
Light gold color. Medium head. Aroma is malty, fruity and slightly herbal. Touch of must. A medium bodied sassion (? ) Malts are fruity and mild. Hops are slightly spicy. Light and refreshing. Nice mild flavors. Well balanced. Light and refreshing this would make a great summer session beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Perkeo (322) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 26, 2003
Pale gold, with a very white head, with a flowery aroma and flavor with background bittering, and unfortunately, a good amount of Diacetyl.

More hops than I was expecting (which is a good thing). Nice refreshing beer. I wouldn't buy it regularly but it's all they had at the tiki bar at the pool I was at. It did it's job.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2003 A light, fruity summer ale. Tried from a bottle bought in NJ not far from the brewery. Good summer session brew, not too strong or different to have on hand for guests.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 3, 2003
Slightly speckled pale golden color. The nose is plastickey with some light fruit and a fairly big hoppiness. The body is quite hoppy for the style with a nice fruitiness with plastic coming through. A spritzy beginning moves into the middle with citrus and resiny wood notes. Finishes smooth with a resiny hoppiness. Not much of a saison I must say, more of a hoppy blonde or something.
