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

B0mber: Yell0w and hazy b0died with a 2-finger head, this had a clean funk (?) ar0ma with s0me fl0ral scents, a hint 0f h0neyed bread, and a quiet fruitiness. That describes much 0f the flav0r, which saw the additi0n 0f a hint 0f lic0rice and a citric bitterness. Dry finish. Pretty nice.

Pretty yeasty! Nice opaque yellow color. Smells like cereal with a tinge of honey. There’s a faint lemony taste. Very earthy.

zombywoof (450) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - MAR 4, 2014
Lemon and floral notes with some clove. This is an OK saison but unremarkable.

BEERSOLDIER (42) - Illinois, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Cloudy gold color (looks like piss). Lots of carbonation, large white head that leaves an ok lacing. Strong yeasty bread smell, but also slightly fruity which makes it smell somewhat refreshing. Tastes of sweet ripe banana and bread. Very lite tasting for a higher gravity. Cheap enough that I would by this again pretty good beer try it. $7 a six pack

Thebullshornbar (72) - Florida, USA - FEB 24, 2014
This is a beer with allot going on and each component working together. The nose is big and fruity with a large amount of esters. Notes of unripe peach, pear, apple cider vinegar, white pepper, rosemary, honey, and dried flowers engage the palate while the spritzy carbonation washes away what would be an overwhelming amount of flavor and leaving a satisfyingly dry, and slightly tart finish.

yrstruly (333) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 19, 2014
Pours hazy straw with a firm white head that leaves a ton of lacing. Aroma of cider, wheat malt, honey, cloves/phenol. Tart up front, with tons of yeast flavour, honey in the mouthfeel, slightly herbal hops in the finish. Really nice.

Chudwick (2011) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - FEB 15, 2014
12oz bottle into inproper glassware - nose is hay, dried flowers, and slight vinegar. Sip adds apples (sour and Granny Smith). Sweeter than I expect. Go Big Blue!!!!! Bigger body than I expect. Dusty.

Nate (3648) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 14, 2014
From bottle at the Coney. Very mild sweet and spicy wheat nose with a bit of lemon character. Floral. Cloudy pale golden with thin white lacing head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Starts moderately sweet with wheat, bubblegum, and yeasty notes. Nice saison with lemon notes and a hint of tart character. Belgian wit finish. Tasty.

Aroma is yeast, white pepper, apple, white peach, white tea. Flavor is apple, white tea, white pepper, yeasty protein, save blanc, cereal. Yeah, I said white a lot. Medium to light body, good carbonation. Very clear appearance, like pale apple juice. The best 6 pack saison I have ever had.
