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

brokensail (9918) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 13, 2011
A: The pour is a fairly clear straw color with a massive white head that eventually settles down. S: Quite a lot of fruity esters to the aroma. Heavy on the banana and pear notes, but lots of citrus going on, too. There is a touch of tart apple and lemon peel and some light malt and straw. Very nice. T: The flavor is somewhat light, but in a good/refreshing way. Banana sweetness followed by sweet pears. A touch of citrus peel bitterness, yeast, and light spices. A little bit of bready malt sweetness, too. M: Medium bodied with medium to high carbonation and a crispness to the finish. O: A really great saison. I found this to be a fantastic beer.

Leighton (9833) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2010
Tap at Blind Tiger. An excellent Saison. Pours a hazy, yellow-gold with a soft, white head. Lovely aroma of herbs, spices, some grass and wheat. Sweet flavor with light pepper, flowers, hints of citrus and some mild bitters. Light to medium in body, pleasantly fizzy. Refreshing, and with a flavor deep enough to excite. Really nice.
