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

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.

Redpointed (69) - Colorado, USA - MAY 1, 2011
Aroma is very yeasty, with some citrus hints. Appearance is a little off putting, almost like lemonade. Taste makes up for the appearance, nicely spiced with a dry finish. Good outdoors beverage.

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - APR 30, 2011
Pours a cloudy yellow gold with a small white bubbly head that fades pretty quick. If the head on a saison doesn’t look like a giant cumulous cloud, something is wrong. Aroma of hay, grass, light herbs, dough, cornbread, and lemon. Flavor of earth, hay, grass, herbs doughy cornbread malt and a bit of a mushroomy quality. Finishes bitter and dry with more mushrooms, earth, toast, and hay. Maybe slightly ashy, but that might just be the contrast between flavor and finish. Medium bodied, nearly light, high carbonation, but not that creamy or authentic in mouthfeel. It’s a better attempt than New Belgium’s Saison, but it’s still nowhere near where the style should be. Still, it’s a saison in a sixer, so it’s worth keeping on deck.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 30, 2011
(12oz bottle). Pour hazy light golden color with white head. Very active carbonation. Aroma has grass, wheat, and some lemon. Taste is sweet malt with a bit of tart. Spiciness as well. Thin bodied with an oily texture. Finish is dry. Any ok beer that would be better if the abv were lower. Then, this would at least be sessionable. As it is, I wouldn’t want to make this my drink of the night. (or day?).

TheBeerGod (5949) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - APR 30, 2011
Bottle. Hazy gold with a short, dense, foamy white head. Nose is grainy, yeasty, fruit laden and spicy. Mainly citrus fruit in the aroma with light tropical fruit notes, soft earthiness as well and hints of salt. Taste is mainly grains, doughy bread, yeast, lemon, soft spice, sweet malt, dried fruit and light earthiness. Body is light-medium and robustly carbonated. Finishes with more grains, sweet malt, sourdough bread, mild spice notes, tropical fruit, lemon, and big yeast notes.
