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

Bottle; seems I haven’t had a saison in a while. Poured a dull, cloudy amber-gold color with a medium to large white head. Aroma musty wheat, lemon, yeast, slight funky earthiness, and spice. Flavor was fairly mellow; banana, wheat, yeast, with a moderate sweetness and spice. Ok, but a bit bland.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2012 Not very unique. Nice but typical for style. Hazy gold. thin white head. Rubber aroma. A little too sweet. However, don’t you love when someone says ’however’? I like it better now. Liquor balls and rubber, eh Vancouver.

Cloudy pour with a mild hop and lemon aroma. A spicey, bitter bready flavor. Good for style.

IrishBoy (4079) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAY 16, 2011
12 oz bottle from a Summpler Sampler. Nose is slighty tart and yeasty-musty with some citrus, spice, and carmel thrown in. Very lightly hazy yellow with a medium pale yellow head. Flavor is corriander, cloves, and very light tartness. AFAIC one of the better Sam Adams.

12 oz bottle. Poured a cloudy golden yellow color with a small white head. Aroma was citrus, yeast, spice (coriander). Hint of lemon and sugar. Flavors were coriander, citrus, notes of yeast. Good, but a tad standard.

draft at haymarket. pours hazy yellow with white head. nose has sweet honey and musty yeast, not much more aroma to it, rather simple. flavors of sweet lemons, musty, dirty yeast profile and rather sweet finish too. Thin and flabby feel. Sorta gross actually.
