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

dmac (3892) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAY 20, 2010
12 oz bottle from EZ Liquors. Poured a super thin pale yellow that could almost be mistaken for a macro except for the huge frothy bright white head. Aroma is complex with lots of pepper and spice, lemon zest, spoiled tangerines, bubble gum and over ripe bananas. The body fills up your mouth and washes down creamy yet very fizzy from the highly active carbonation and a dry finish. Flavor of wheat, lemon, grass and yeast. Solid but the aroma trumps the flavor.

I am very pleased with this. I am usually not much on Saisons but this was very pleasing. Pale yellow with continuous ascending head that ends up soft and white. Very effervescent in the mouth. Finishes clean.

pete4999 (991) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAY 18, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with white head. Some subtle hops, but more of the "lemon pepper" feel. Doesn’t hold up against some of the other famous saisons, but it’s fine for an American saison.

rugbydude05 (478) - Bridgewater, NJ, New Jersey, USA - MAY 18, 2010
12 oz bottle, pours a hazy golden color with copious head. Aroma is overwhelmingly spicy as expected with high malt content, not very complex. Taste was a good mix between bitter and spicy, with more bitterness than spicyness. Palate was moderately rough and nice full body. Decent saison, good bold palate stands out.

cmonster (963) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 17, 2010
Bottle served in a tulip. Nice hazy yellow pour with a medium sized white head. Decent lacing and retention. The nose is fragrant and farmhouse. Sweet, pink bubble gum, yeasty, and fruit. Medium sweet flavor. Lively carbonation, prickly mouthfeel, light-medium body, and a dry, pink eraser finish. A well crafted domestic saision.

blipp (5842) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - MAY 16, 2010
Bottle. Pours unclear golden yellow with a thin white head. Slightly tart fruity aroma on a wheaty base, with some spicy and lemony notes. The flavor has wheaty notes and is a bit tart, with spices and a hint of lemon. Nice.

kevd193213 (853) - Hope Valley, Rhode Island, USA - MAY 16, 2010
Draught. Copper, cloudy pour with a thin off white head. Aroma of sweet malt and faint barnyard funk. Sharp taste of malt and hops. Lacks the typical dry aftertaste of a saison. Nothing really stands out.

caesar (4893) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 16, 2010
Tap @ Beer Temple. Clear yellow golden color, short head. Aroma is quite hoppy, bit spicy, grassy, saison-like. Taste is more bitter, bit dry. Bit carbonated. Slight boring.

Appearance is mild orange with a crisp, white, thin head. Aroma is of oranges, pear, and other fruit. Taste is of fruit & spice, with a tartness. Dry, slightly fizzy finish with a warming taste. Very good and drinkable.
