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

12 oz bottle. Pale gold pour with a fairly thin head and limited retention. Nose was typical saison but with more lemon and citrus notes. A bit sour on the nose. Taste followed the nose but with less of the tartness and more of the lemony, grainy presence. Pretty damn good for a larger produced micro saison.

Bottle. Musty lemon and barley malt aroma. Cloudy pale yellow color with large head. Musty sweet lemon peel and malt flavor. Very well made - an excellent beer.

Terminus (3545) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 22, 2011
tap at Hoppy Monk in El Paso, TX-pours hazy yellow with a fizzy white head. Nose is earthy lite spice and pheonols and lite lemon zest with tartness. flavors are grassy grainy and spicy with lots of zest. dry on the finish-pretty tasty! pretty good for a big regional brewery. I will have to have more of this!

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.
