COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our homage to the beers that have quenched the thirst of Belgian farm workers for centuries. Brewed with barley, wheat and rice and fermented at high temperatures with a special blend of four different yeast strains, Saison is fruity and slightly tart, with a dry finish that makes it that rarest of treats–a beer as refreshing as it is complex. 7.3% ABV.
2010 GABF Silver Medal Winner

12 oz bottle poured into chalice. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a white head. Great aroma of yeast with some earth and citrus notes. Great mouthfeel. Flavor of yeast, bread and citrus notes throughout with an almost slight tart finish.

12 ounce bottle. Hazy pale gold color. Big rocky white head. Yeasty, lemony malt aroma. Zesty, bready malt flavor has a wonderful tart citrus character. Refreshing and tangy with an earthy maltiness. Some wheat-like notes as well.finishes dry and champagne-like.

Murrow (74) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours pale gold with thin head. Slightly cloudy. Mild and clean aroma of malt, wild yeast, green apple. Opens light with some sweet, fruity notes, developing into a bit of yeasty funkiness toward the middle. Tart, crisp finish. Though rather light in character, it has a surprisingly heavy mouthfeel. Not heavy overall, just more than expected. Very clean, pleasant, refreshing beer.

Brandon1989 (255) - Euless, Texas, USA - DEC 11, 2014
This beer pours a hazy whitish-yellow color with a small white bubbly head that dissipated very quickly even with an aggressive pour. The aroma biscuit and pineapple. The beer has a rather tropical aroma to it. The pineapple is picked up in the flavor yet stronger in the aroma. The taste also has some bready yeast flavor to it and some very slight spices to it but not much. Worth a try!

HuskerTan (573) - Holdrege, Nebraska, USA - NOV 27, 2014
Bottle. A- Lemons, wheat, slight funk, subtle spice. A- Yellow color, hazy liquid, white head. T- Wheat, lemons, funk, subtle spice. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, slightly funky finish. O Seemed more along the lines of a wheat ale than a farmhouse. Not much spice and just a little funk that sets it apart from anything different. Just needed a lot more depth to this one. Refreshing though.

Notes of cheese and wine on the nose. Slightly cloudy golden pour. Effervescence is strong. Nice Belgian yeast esters, easy to drink.

Tapp på BottleRock LA. Gul med vitt skum. Syrlig doft med inslag av ananas. Tropiska syrliga smaker. Kort eftersmak.

UrbanCaveman (77) - Ohio, USA - NOV 3, 2014
On tap at TCB in Iowa City, served in a pint glass. A: A cloudy, hazy gold beer, which had no head to speak of when it arrived. Lacing was minimal as well. S: Smelled as a wheat beer using Belgian yeast might, along with a metallic sour note. T: The taste followed the smell rather closely: a solid wheat beer laden with Belgian-esque yeast and a citric-metallic sourness. The taste opened with lemon and wheat, with the sour flavors developing through the middle and lingering on the finish. M: Verging on medium-bodied, with lovely carbonation. O: Not a bad saison. Would drink again.

fidelis83 (2005) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Hazy pale gold pour with a 1 finger, soapy to creamy off white head. Aroma is big cereal and bready yeast right away, some stone fruit, dishwater wheaty notes, and some floral, perfumey hops. Flavor is big on doughy bready yeast, some cereal, dishwater wheat, oily grain, floury wheat, honey, a little booziness and floral hops. Medium body, oily feel, light, sharp carbonation. Pretty average Saison that’s way too strong, kinda messy and boozy, but still decent.
