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.

12 oz bottle pours a hazy yellow. Good fruity yeast aroma. Funky yeast taste. Lemon, hay, bread, very earthy. Smooth finish. Very good saison.

Prufrockstar (1145) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 17, 2014
Draft at College Inn. Pours hazy yellow with splotchy white head and irregular lacing. Lemon zest, pepper, mineral, somewhat floral, just the lightest touch of bubble gum. Lightly sweet up front gives way to a dry, slightly tart finish. Medium body, lively, prickly carbonation. Refreshing, despite the 7.3%. Overall: this is a very nice saison -- it’s nice to find a non-bretted/wild American saison that isn’t straight up bubble gum and coriander. Would drink again.

Draft at sb. Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a loose white head. Big sweet lemon and floral nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Sweet lemon and floral mid palate. Long clean dry finish. Lovely.

italarican (1484) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - JUN 10, 2014
On tap at RnH. Hazy blonde pour. Dry, peppery, rustic barnyard funk. Not that sugary, so I don’t get that bubble gum flavor I don’t like in saisons. Pretty good.

annunz123 (881) - 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.

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 (1558) - 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.

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 (407) - 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 (5005) - 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.
