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.

Pours cloudy yellow with a white head. Lemon tart with a touch of funk. A more aggressive saison. Like a west coast American style.

Draft. Fruit and citrus yeasty aroma. Hazy golden color white head. As described taste was sweet and tart, with hoppy finish. High carbonation, medium body, fairly long finish. I could taste the alcohol in the finish. I thought it was ok overall.

Dave from Great Divide bought me my round at Kraftworks. Aroma of citrus and belgian yeast. Pours yellow and hazy with a medium fluffy head. Bold taste of light citrus, nutmeg and yeast. Kicks you in the mouth and stays there. Yummmm. Thanks, Dave.

bradner (91) - Oswego, Illinois, USA - JUN 8, 2011
12 oz bottle (April 5, 2011 date) poured into Russian River tulip. AROMA: Doughy, yeasty, and citrus. APPEARANCE: Poured a hazy straw color with some head that dissipates quickly with some remaining skim. TASTE: Citrus, slight funk, some sweet malt, a bit tart but finishes dry and a bit sweet. PALATE: Light bodied and slightly creamy. Average carbonation. OVERALL: I’ve been into saisons for a few years now and have overlooked this offering many times. This is a pretty solid beer that I’d buy again.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours cloudy golden with a thick, white head. Aroma of caramel malts, light fruit, and citrus/floral hops. Flavor about the same with a little spice/barnyard notes. Average texture. A decent beer.

Sampled on 6/4/2011. This saison pours a slightly hazy light yellow gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is cereal, citrusy and sweet, some spices. A light to medium bodied saison. The malts are fruity and sweet, citrusy and cereal. The hops are herbal and citrusy. Lively carbonation. Crisp and clean. Light and refreshing. A little differently spiced than most saisons, a little hoppier and way more citrusy. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
