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

annunz123 (875) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 9, 2014
Belgian yeast, banana, citrus, and spice in the aroma. Flavor is a little sweet and fruity with some underlying musty barnyard flavors. Bitter citrus finish.

jw0406 (801) - atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 8, 2014
12 oz pours a cloudy yellow color with a nice white head. Aromas of fruit, wheat, lemon. Light bodied, but complex, with a nice tart finish

TXBadger (1488) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 28, 2014
An average saison. Pours a slightly cloudy straw yellow color with white head. Some light fruit and raw wheat on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes dry.

hopbag (104) - - MAY 28, 2014
Light golden color. Pleasant lightly fruity yeast. Some clove. Light toast but not a terribly interesting malt profile. Dying finish that I’m not sure about.

drsandman (366) - New York, USA - MAY 22, 2014
On tap at the barely open "Roof at Park South" in NYC. Light cloudy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is wheat, lemon, faint smoke, yeast, spices. Ditto for flavor, lightish to med mouthfeel.. crisp finish. Not my favorite take on the style

Ferris (4766) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 20, 2014
Draft - Tart, grassy, lemon and yeast. Pale cloudy yellow with a thin head. Apricot and fruity esters. Sweet and chalky, not my thing.

Caytinator (963) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 18, 2014
5oz sample at the brewery. Lemon-yellow cloudy beer, no lacing, small head, zesty aroma, just fruit and a little barnyard in it. Nicely done taste--good medium palate, just enough bitterness, more sour than sweet, not very complex but nothing bad in it.

KamGoPro (103) - Texas, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Refreshing malts and varying yeasts. Fresh citrus flavors and very mild betterness.

nickel (332) - - MAY 11, 2014
Amber color, aroma of yeast and spices. Malty and wheat flavor, with slightly bitter tart aftertaste. Good representative of farmhouse ales from this brewery.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 15/20
shorlin (664) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - MAY 6, 2014
Initial lemon aroma with a good bit of farmhouse funk to follow. Pour is quite yellow, small white head. Taste is tart lemon, little spice, little funk. Very refreshing, not a long finish. Very good beer.
