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.

Fritz123 (1100) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - JUN 26, 2013
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.

Bottle. A- Lemons, wheat, slight funk, subtle spice. A- Yellow color, hazy liquid, white head. T- Wheat, lemons, funk, subtle spice. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, slightly funky finish. O Seemed more along the lines of a wheat ale than a farmhouse. Not much spice and just a little funk that sets it apart from anything different. Just needed a lot more depth to this one. Refreshing though.

Notes of cheese and wine on the nose. Slightly cloudy golden pour. Effervescence is strong. Nice Belgian yeast esters, easy to drink.

Tapp på BottleRock LA. Gul med vitt skum. Syrlig doft med inslag av ananas. Tropiska syrliga smaker. Kort eftersmak.

UrbanCaveman (63) - Ohio, USA - NOV 3, 2014
On tap at TCB in Iowa City, served in a pint glass. A: A cloudy, hazy gold beer, which had no head to speak of when it arrived. Lacing was minimal as well. S: Smelled as a wheat beer using Belgian yeast might, along with a metallic sour note. T: The taste followed the smell rather closely: a solid wheat beer laden with Belgian-esque yeast and a citric-metallic sourness. The taste opened with lemon and wheat, with the sour flavors developing through the middle and lingering on the finish. M: Verging on medium-bodied, with lovely carbonation. O: Not a bad saison. Would drink again.

fidelis83 (2000) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Hazy pale gold pour with a 1 finger, soapy to creamy off white head. Aroma is big cereal and bready yeast right away, some stone fruit, dishwater wheaty notes, and some floral, perfumey hops. Flavor is big on doughy bready yeast, some cereal, dishwater wheat, oily grain, floury wheat, honey, a little booziness and floral hops. Medium body, oily feel, light, sharp carbonation. Pretty average Saison that’s way too strong, kinda messy and boozy, but still decent.

Im not a fan of this style, that said only have it on occasion but I got to say this is pretty nice. Not that typical banana clovyness. Aroma has some rich ripe fruit rind some yeastiness some slight pepper and a very small hint of a fruit-banana clove on the backend. A sweet fruit lemon comes out more. Taste has some rich malt with buttery like lemon with a nice sweet note. Has some pepper citrus rind and smooth creamy malt with subtle lemon. Refined and nice.
