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

Bottle from Total Wine in Boca Raton, FL. Pint glass. Pours a very yellow, hazy with a thick white head. Aroma is fruit, wheat, cereal, and yeasts. The taste is at first fruity with citrus (lemons and grapefruit) and then you get the wheat and barley. Heavy yeasts tickle the tongue and the carbonation is high. Slightly bitter, tart finish. Lingering yeasts stay in your mouth. I liked it but not my favorite. Also BV is a little high for a saison or sessionable farmhouse.

mkel07 (4028) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 14, 2015
Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique 140515. Don’t see many Great Divide beers out this way but the ones that you do are always very good, as is this one. Clear golden colour with a limited white head. Tropical fruit in the nose. The flavour fills the mouth with fruit and alcohol, a great combination.

Tap. Light golden pour with minimal head. Apple cider, vinegar, wheat. Great carbonation. Sweet and sour finish. Refreshing but finish is a bit sweet for me

ordybill (537) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - APR 21, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Yeast, wheat and fruit drive this train. Appearance- Pours a murky yellow with a large white head. Taste- Citrus is a predominate flavor that blends well with the wheat Palate- A medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Overall- A good brew, worth giving a try.

Koskela (373) - Marysville, California, USA - APR 15, 2015
Farmhouse ale. I get an aroma of bandaids and a bit of malty sweetness from this clearish blonde brew. Very sweet and yeasty tasting in this full bodied brew. Not a farmhouse ale person at all. For the style they did a decent job.

12 Fl OZ ($12 6pack) an absolute great beer for the hot weather. Has a high ABV and is super drinkable. Flavor is very good, has the right farmhouse hops and yeast to produce the perfect taste. First beer I’ve had from the maker and it is excellent.
