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

On tap at urge in Poway. Crystal clear pale yellow with effervescent strong white head. Nose is super subtle with bits of pineapple and yeast. Taste is bright and light with just a bit of wildness. Kinda chewy in the back. Estroyed the glass with gooey lace. Not bad but kinda uninspiring.

On tap @ the brewery. Hazy straw golden in color, like all saisons, with a generous big fluffy white head. Strong peach/apricot aroma, along with some hay. Zesty citrus taste combines aptly with funky apricot to make a pretty unique saison, with a clean, refreshing, off-dry finish. Amazing saison, and I’m not even fond of the style!

Wow. Great Divide really is doing some awesome work. Bottle. Light amber brew with frothy white head. Typical Saison aromas going on here, yeasty spice and coriander. Nice beer, and I thought the alcohol was nicely cloaked too, it weighs in at 7.2.

Decent head, yellow, mostly clear. Typical saison aroma with some spice and fruit - maybe some citrus in there. Taste has more citrus with a bit of a grass twang to it. It’s a good Saison, though the alcohol level seems a bit high. But kudos for making this one available in 12 oz bottles. The trend to everyone going to 500ml and 750ml bottles (though profitable for the brewery) is getting tough on me and my pocketbook.

On tap @ Great Divide. Cloudy, light yellow-orange appearance with white. Yeasty, lemon citrusy, Belgian ale nose that’s a touch spicy. Lemon citrusy, fairly yeasty, lightly tart flavor initially followed by a mildly hoppy, bready taste. Yeasty, bready finish. Lemon yeasty aftertaste.

bottle. Pours a hazy yellow color with fizzy white head. Aroma of lemon, sour wheat, spices. Taste is at first sweet wheat, quite sweet almost like a hoegaarden, which gives way to a finish that is fruity and citrusy, with moderate spicing throughout. Honestly I was overall a little disappointed by this beer, but what do you expect for an American made saison that is only $9.99 a 6 pack. Great Divide has always impressed me with all their styles except their belgians. This one I find would more accurately be described as a normal witbier than a saison. But ultimately there is nothing really wrong with this beer, and I am not upset to be drinking.

12oz bottle. Hazy golden color, decent white head. Lots of horse blanket and barnyard yeast aromas with some fruitiness. Some citrus and pepper flavors with more the fruitiness I got on the nose. Not bad.
