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 treatsĖa beer as refreshing as it is complex. 7.3% ABV.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JUL 25, 2010
Bottle. Hazy pale with a white head that settles to a ring. Aroma of citrus and a slight fruity background. The flavor found citrus, grass, yeast, farmhouse funk. Light body and a tart hoppiness.

Goodgrief (1829) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - JUL 24, 2010
Just realized that Iíve never rated this, even though Iíve had several times. This is a pretty good US attempt at the style with a tart finish and a good level of spicing. It could pass as a true Belgian, but lacks a little bit in the funk department and slightly errs on the sweet side.

KyotoLefty (6964) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 21, 2010
Small bottle. Pastel yellow color. Creamy flavor with lemon and a touch of butter. Slightly candyish. SMooth, almost flat. Decent but too sweet and rathre undistincitve.

pineypower (2635) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - JUL 18, 2010
Pours out a mostly clear straw/golden color with a fluffy white head. Aroma is of some tart citrus and light grass. Taste is refreshing and very drinkable, light malts, citrus, grass, tart funky notes and some yeast with some dryness on the finish. Solid summer brew.

Tejas (905) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 15, 2010
Pretty solid saison. Could use more spice but still good. Wish it came in bombers. Donít know if I drink saisons enough to want to buy 6 of them.

brewski519 (644) - Morrisville, North Carolina, USA - JUL 12, 2010
12 oz bottle - pours a cloudy golden color with a very foamy white head. Aroma of grass and light lemon in the nose. Flavor of grass, grain, spice, honey, lemon, and wheat without a lot of alcohol coming through (but at 7.3 it is certainly there - not quite a "session" beer but not too far from it). A nice, refreshing, enjoyable beer that was quite easy to drink.

vyvvy (4469) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUL 11, 2010
Pours pale golden / yellow with a sudsy white head. The aroma is quite spicy and yeasty with pepper, very light toast, floralness, smooth nectar fruit and zest. Medium crisp grainy body that is husky with flowing semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with the aroma traits along with some citrus and tartness. It is quite dry. The finish is crisp and refreshing with a touch of sourness and nice lively spice. I liked this one a lot more than I thought I would.

thebeertourist (4996) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 11, 2010
On tap at BeerTemple, Amsterdam. Hazy golden with a fine, lacing offwhite head. Lemony aroma, some leather notes. Brettanomyces in small proportions, but still noticeable. A nice one. Could be even more assertive.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 10, 2010
On tap at the White Horse American Beer Festival, 2nd July 2010. Cloudy yellow with a sharp taste. Tart and refreshing. Lots of grapefruit, almost too much. So, so dry. A real palate cleanser! Great taste of limes and sour candy as you roll it round your mouth. Not sure itís a true saison but itís killer!
