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.

coolpop (1395) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - MAY 8, 2010
Draft. Poured a light straw yellow color with a medium white head. Aroma was of citrus, banana, wheat, clove, some floral hops. Flavor closely followed aroma, plus some tartness and a mild yeastiness. Light and refreshing.

jstraw (1913) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 8, 2010
Hazy pale orange with fair, creamy white head / Steely, restrained, nose of banana, orange, and resin / Medium body, moderately sour, malty, with decent, slightly bitter, finish / Flavors of banana, cream, lemon, grass, resin, and white pepper / Needs more hopping - on the fat side.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - MAY 7, 2010
On tap @ Humpys. Pours hazy yellow with a dense white head. Aroma of lemon pudding, coriander and wheat. Flavor of sour yeast, lots of spices and some light wheat in the finish. Medium body with a slightly low carbonation for the style and a semi dry mouth feel. Overall a nice beer with lots of flavor but the low carbonation and mouth feel hold this back for me.

BritAlesRule (212) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 6, 2010
Hazy pale yellow. Aroma seemed slightly ’off’’ on initial pour. Tangy sour citrus fruit, some grass and spices in the nose. Medium light palate. Bubbly and tangy. Spicy and mildly tart citrus taste. Finish is abrupt, lacking the peppery dryness of a great Saison. Eh.

NoiZe (2324) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2010
Tap @ Beertemple. Yellow colored brew. Sour, grassy aroma. Flavor is a bit sour too, some fruits, barn, tart, some hop. Light.

rudolf (2340) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAY 1, 2010
Lightly hazy gold, big fluffy white head with nice lacing. Nose is bready malt, some yeasty fruits (orange, white grapes, unripe plums), some candied citrus - a bit sweet. Flavor is bready malt, yeast, alcohol, some spices (pepper, coriander, lemongrass). Long sweet malty finish. could really stand to be better attenuated - not bad, but not something I would want more than 1, maybe 2 bottles of.

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - APR 29, 2010
Pours a hazy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is yeast and tart with a hint of breadiness. Flavor is nicely tart. Not mouth puckering by any stretch, but tart enough to make you notice. The tartness is nicely balanced by a great spicy character and just a touch of farmhouse funk. very nice beer.

MrBeerFanatic (848) - Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 28, 2010
Light cloudy yellow, light carbonation. Aromas remind me oh sooo much of the gum I grew up chewing, JUICY FRUIT!!! Other than that you have banana, spice(little ginger), lemon zests, light yeasty presence, with slight sour apple. Flavors of lemon, sour apple, hay, slight honey and banana esters. Slightly sour, dry, sweet, complex, zesty, not watery, crisp, refreshing (but I don’t encourage to many of these "refreshing" beers in one sitting). Man this Saison might be one of my favorites thus far in my journey of tastemanships.

Strykzone (4900) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 28, 2010
Colette pours gold cloudy with a head that is almost white and is long lasting. Grass and light lemon in the nose. Flavor is complex and begins aggressive. Grass, grain, honey, lemon, wheat, alcohol, earth. Finish brought out some mild spiciness. A very enjoyable beer and something that had a feel that was definitely Olde World.

topherh (1911) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - APR 27, 2010
Pours pale golden with a white head. Aroma is lemon, pepper, spice, and a little wheat. Flavor is sweet, citrus, peppery spice, with a lightly bitter finish.
