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

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 (4931) - 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.

Pours a hazy bubbly yellow, with medium white head. Scent is fruits and sugar. Taste is typical and this is not my style

Dorwart (2374) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - APR 25, 2010
Good sized, sloppy, bright white head of varying sized bubbles. Good carbonation. Citrusy and grassy aroma with some lemon, corn and rice. Color is a medium gold. Light and crisp flavor with more lemon and straw. I bit lively in the mouth with a nice crisp dryness and a tad of sweetness. Kind of reminds me of a white wine without the grapes. Light alcohol presence. Finishes dry and grainy. A decent saison.

KornDogg (529) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2010
Bottle. Subtle sweet and funk aroma. Golden body with medium head. The yeasts are prominent as the flavor is sweet with a little tart, the barley, wheat and rice are nicely balanced. Finish is dry and crisp, very easy to drink

obguthr (3830) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 24, 2010
Funky, musty, and a little shitty pear nose, perhaps excessively funky. Clear yellow, no head. Aged cheddar is present throughout but fairly prominent in the beginning and end. As the flavor of cheese subsides, it is supplanted with musty pear. A bit much on the carbonation. Good amount of funk and neat interpretation. I love the brewer, but have been disappointed in the past with their belgian and wheat offerings. This is respectable and of a quality I have come to expect..

keepersj12 (2689) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - APR 24, 2010
Very nice for the warmer weather. Fruity aroma from a yellow pour with a fluffy white head. Flavor is fruity with a nice sourness to it. Finishes very dry. Nice and refreshing.

IndianaRed (2432) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 19, 2010
Bottle pours a light hazy golden yellow with a lively white head. Light malt aroma with some tart fruity notes and a touch of old socks. Dry tart flavor with flavors of apple and white grapes. Lingering spiciness with a little oft hat Belgian funk. Refreshing and crisp.

Bottle. 25.4 oz. Split with James and Toney. Pours a slightly cloudy yellow-gold with a nice fluffy white head. Aroma of banana, clove, yeast, lavender, and grapefruit. Very silky, smooth palate. Medium bodied, with a nice, clean, refreshing finish. Decent saison.
