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

Poured into a pint glass. Aromas of lemon peel, bananas and yeast. Slightly cloudy, yellow color. Initial flavors of banana, clove, citrus and yeast. Great funky flavors on the finish. Really great farmhouse ale.

Rated on 9-25-2009 at Fort Wayne, IN Gathering. This bottled beer pours a very small white head that mostly diminished, some floaties, cloudy body with a tapioca hue, and next to no lacing. The Aroma is fruity, spicy, yeasty, and lightly tart. The Taste is tart, fruity, spicy, and has a dry finish. The Palate is spritzy and this beer is light-medium bodied. In conclusion, this is an easy drinking beer as the 7.3%ABV is well masked and is easy on the palate. I recommend trying this Saison.

Frahmo (267) - Idaho, USA - DEC 16, 2013
12 oz bottle. Golden pour with a white head. Super tasty beer, I would have guess a golden ale by the taste and mouthfeel. Malty with a backbone of sweet, mild yeasty flavor. Super easy drinker with medium body. ABV is hidden well in this guy.

dansac (89) - Loa Angeles, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Hard to qualify this as a saison; it’s more like a light tripel, or a golden belgian. Lots of belgian yeast, no barnyard funk, or prominent citrus. Pours bright yellow, with a decent head. Very, very sweet for a ’saison’, lots of banana, butterscotch, and some spice. It tastes like a light version of Allagash’s Triple, or La fin du Monde. Very nice stuff, super drinkable, tasty and rich.

12oz bottle. Byo. This is good. Flat out good. If you enjoy tank 7 by boulevard and a good hefe weisen you’ll like this for sure.

Huhzubendah (2420) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 2, 2013
On draft at The Big Hunt in D.C. the beer is hazy and straw to golden hued with a quarter inch of white head. the aroma offers malt, grass, light spice, coriander, pepper. Medium bodied and malty, with a bit of a harsh / aggressive hop punch toward the finish. Pepper and alcohol, citrus, lemon. A bit unrefined. Not bad, but lacking the elegant complexity and/or drinkability I was seeking.

Banana, bubblegum, yeasty. Pale cloudy yellow, medium white head. Slight bitterness, bready balanced by bubblegum. Alcohol is slightly present, slightly oily, relatively lively. Pretty darn good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Wine Warehouse. CHO. Pours cloudy golden with 1/2" of foamy white head. Smells of sour wheat and grass. Tastes of sour grasses, lemon, rice, and wax lips.

EricTeusink (678) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 15, 2013
Very middling Saison. Not enough earthy seasoning for me. Pours hazy yellow with less than expected head. Scent is grass and nutmeg. Tastes is not well balanced between spice, bitter, and sweet. Medium and undercarbonated. Blah. Draft - Manuel’s Tavern - Atlanta, GA

This reminds me so much of la fin du monde which is strange... pours opaque gold with white frothy head that doesn’t hold well. Bubble gum and yeasty nose. Crisp on the tongue with a nice finish.
