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.

Poured from a refrigerated bottle into snifter. Appearance is a hazy gold with a dense white head that slowly dissipates. Lacing is sticky and webby. Aroma is a bit funky, there are notes of freshly cut granny Smith apples and some slight estery aromas. Smell is wonderful. Taste is initially tart and quickly moves to a spicy, estery tasty not unlike a hefe. Crisp and light body and mouthfeel. Very slight alcohol presence is buried in the spicy notes on the back of the tongue. Very enjoyable beer. I’m glad I have some more of them.

12oz bottle. Poured into my Delirium snifter it had a nice orange hue to it, slightly hazy with a cloudy center. Aroma had hints of citrus and orange. Flavor was a little on the gingery side with slight sour notes. It wasn’t a bad drink by any means but nothing really super exciting though.

Semi cloudy in appearance with a yellow color. Thin white head with good lacing. Head decipated rather quickly. Funky cheese, stagnat water, and toasted nuts come out in the aroma. Lemon, buttered artichoke hearts, and rubber are very noticeable in the flavor. Low in carbonation. It does have a smooth finish. Thin texture. At first i could not get past the aroma, but when i did the taste was amazing. Glad i tried it.

Smell is yeasty and slighty funky. Get big beet flavors on this, grass, yeast. Quite nice.

12oz bottle, pours a cloudy yellow. No head. Floral, doughy aroma. Taste is oddly the normal saison consistency, but a very odd almost hoppy finish that throws it all off.

I poured a 12 oz bottle into pint sized glass mug... The liquid is cloudy, pale and yellow with a thin filmy white head that stuck to the glass. The smell has a lot of Belgian yeast, salt, banana, clove and sour lemon. The taste starts with some tart lemon then you get some yeast and spice, banana and a grassy/ lemony finish. The beer is light bodied with stinging carbonation and a seriously dry finish. I really enjoyed this beer, it has a little something for everyone.

On tap at urge in Poway. Crystal clear pale yellow with effervescent strong white head. Nose is super subtle with bits of pineapple and yeast. Taste is bright and light with just a bit of wildness. Kinda chewy in the back. Estroyed the glass with gooey lace. Not bad but kinda uninspiring.

On tap @ the brewery. Hazy straw golden in color, like all saisons, with a generous big fluffy white head. Strong peach/apricot aroma, along with some hay. Zesty citrus taste combines aptly with funky apricot to make a pretty unique saison, with a clean, refreshing, off-dry finish. Amazing saison, and I’m not even fond of the style!

Wow. Great Divide really is doing some awesome work. Bottle. Light amber brew with frothy white head. Typical Saison aromas going on here, yeasty spice and coriander. Nice beer, and I thought the alcohol was nicely cloaked too, it weighs in at 7.2.

Decent head, yellow, mostly clear. Typical saison aroma with some spice and fruit - maybe some citrus in there. Taste has more citrus with a bit of a grass twang to it. It’s a good Saison, though the alcohol level seems a bit high. But kudos for making this one available in 12 oz bottles. The trend to everyone going to 500ml and 750ml bottles (though profitable for the brewery) is getting tough on me and my pocketbook.
