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.

From a bottle. Pours slightly hazy straw colour, thin head, fruity wine aroma, mild sour flavours, not the strongest of the farmhouse ales. Quite nice.

TH28 (213) - - DEC 30, 2014
Appearance: Cloudy, light golden, with an almost nonexistent white foam cap. Aroma: Fruity, dominated by apple and pear, with a hint of peppery yeast. Taste: Apple, pear, with an earthy, herbal hop character. Yeast adds a slight spiciness. Mouthfeel: medium with a light carbonation. Poured from a bottle and was flatter than a typical saison should be. Not the freshest example Finish: Lingering pear and moderate tart dryness. Overall: I’ve had fresher pours of this on draft that were much more flavorful and effervescent. This bottle was 118 days old and the typical spice and tartness were dulled, with fruit flavors more prominent.

Smells like funky yeast but quite tart and citrusy on top of that. Tartness dominates the taste for a long time but eventually you’re left with the yeasty funk of a saison.

BierMeHoos (291) - Maryland, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Poured from a bottle at home. Pours pale gold with thin head. Mild and clean aroma of malt, wild yeast, green apple. Similar taste. Not my favorite Great Divide but still decent.

gripweed57 (911) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - DEC 23, 2014
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 (87) - 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.
