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 ounce bottle. A: Pours an unfiltered golden with solid white lacing. S: Very malty with various citrus fruits. T: Herbs and spices complement the citrus fruits present in this brew, incredibly complex for a warm weather style. M: On the lighter side with average carbonation. D: Very nice and goes down easy on a hot day.

Leighton (12625) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2010
Tap at Blind Tiger. An excellent Saison. Pours a hazy, yellow-gold with a soft, white head. Lovely aroma of herbs, spices, some grass and wheat. Sweet flavor with light pepper, flowers, hints of citrus and some mild bitters. Light to medium in body, pleasantly fizzy. Refreshing, and with a flavor deep enough to excite. Really nice.

zach8270 (3690) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUN 14, 2010
(bottle - 12 oz) Hazy gold pour with a rather thin layer of white head. Yeasty and spicy aroma with some hints of coriander and wheat. Yeasty and sweet at the start with some light hints of bubblegum and cloves. Smooth transition to a yeasty middle and a very clean finish that leaves only a light crispness on the palate. Very dry on the finish as well.

Pours a cloudy very pale yellow almost with a milky white appearance. Aroma of spices, coriander, citrus. Very nice and intense nose. Flavor is strong citrus and spice. Finish is coriander and nutmeg, but with a full lemon flavor. Very good.

Chipper (303) - Red Lion, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 9, 2010
A deep golden pour with a big white head, that dissipated quickly. Big Belgian type aromas of sweet fruits and the flavor is very smooth, fruity, and slightly dry. Excellent beer.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 7, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2010 Hazy gold, thick white head. Tropical fruit on the nose, pepper, coriander, banana, toasty wheat. Floral and herbal hop notes. Tastes kind of doughy for the style, with more tropical fruit and banana esters, something a little plasticy about it. Light pepper and spice on the finish with more herbal hops. Very ok.
