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.

Bottle. Some socks. Lemony. Nice light tartness. A little sulfury, but in a good way. Grainy and dry.

CanIHave4Beers (3790) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - OCT 21, 2010
Pours a hazy yellow with a medium head and some lace. The aroma is tart with a little yeasty baguette breadiness. The flavor is spicy and bready while also maintaining a subtle tartness. The beer id dry and lightly fruity with a bit of lemon rind.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 16, 2010
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from a local shop in Hatteras:
Aroma: The nose is light with bits of hay, green grass, yeast, clover, and honey.
Appearance: It pours a cloudy yellow gold with a rocky white head. Excellent head retention.
Taste: A nice bit of yeast and lemon upfront with a nice dustiness some honey, and a bit of Belgian style. This has a great depth of flavor.
Palate: Light to medium body with higher carbonation leading to a yeasty finish.
Overall: It has a little more body than a traditional saison, but it is still a very worthwhile brew. Definitely worth a try if you happen upon it.

Sampled at Rare Beer Tasting II in Denver on September 17, 2010. Light, yellowish color with an off-white head with light-brown patches. Neat. Slow carbonation. Aroma is lightly soured, almost a little yeasty. Light, actually… very light on the palate. The little sour tartiness of the beer adds a nice twist to the style. Not being a fan of sours too much, having it attached to a lighter body makes it much more palatable.

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 20, 2010
Received in trade from Glouglouburp and split between tasting and cooking wild rice. Dark somewhat cloudy amber. Sour sweet aroma with more melon and lemon than spice or yeast. Fruity and slightly tart as advertised. A trifle thick in body. Lingering lemon and faint spice.

bjt512 (292) - Athens, Georgia, USA - SEP 18, 2010
12 oz bottle at a buddy’s house, so I don’t know how old it was. This raised a substantial head, in keeping with the style, but tends a bit too much toward herbal fruitiness for my taste. Notes of lavender and rosewater dominated the nose and palate. These flavors overpower the earthiness of the yeast, which is normally my favorite quality of a saison. Drinkable, but by no means an exemplar of the style.

MaBeer1972 (1585) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 15, 2010
A hazy light yellow brew with white head and nice carbonation. Aroma of tart citrus and bread-fruit. Flavor and body reminds me of a good Belgian Wit with a little more "oomph", good citrus and spice flavors. The yeast really comes through with this one. Not bad at all.

Radek Kliber (6890) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - SEP 6, 2010
Bottle 355ml
Aroma : salty sweet front , like a hay in barn. Slightly herbal at finish with hint of tartness.6+
Appearance: murky amber gold with initial large crown. Pleasant appearance yet short lived. 3+
Flavour and Palate: medium bodied. String influence of wheat , citrus with hint of yeast , dry carbonated tartness on sides with some of alcohol finishing. More of weizenbock than farmhouse ale. Please note that I don’t exclude noticeable funk element but to me it was secondary. Quiet dry at finish.

caralkaline87 (435) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 30, 2010
Pours a murky blonde with some sediment and a moderate, foamy white head. Nose is a pleasant mixture of fruity malt, belgian yeast, alcohol, and floral hops. Flavor is a little more subdued than the nose, with a little more alcohol to it. Mouthful is big and well carbonated. Backside is somewhat tangy and bittersweet. Good stuff.
