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. Cloudy yellow pour. Aroma is spicy pepper and a little funky yeast. Taste is spicy, lemon, banana, funk, and a little sourness. Level of carbonation is low.

12oz bottle, pours a cloudy yellow. No head. Floral, doughy aroma. Taste is oddly the normal saison consistency, but a very odd almost hoppy finish that throws it all off.

12 oz bottle - pours a cloudy golden color with a very foamy white head. Aroma of grass and light lemon in the nose. Flavor of grass, grain, spice, honey, lemon, and wheat without a lot of alcohol coming through (but at 7.3 it is certainly there - not quite a "session" beer but not too far from it). A nice, refreshing, enjoyable beer that was quite easy to drink.

Hazy golden pour, white head which quickly dissipated. Bready malts, lemongrass, some malts, and slightly sweet finish. Very refreshing, I could drink a 6 pack of this.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a tulip glass. Information on the bottle includes a short description of the beer, a "Bottled On" date and the abv% (7.3). Appearance: From the pour it produces a big billowy head of white foam over a hazy golden honey colored body. The haze comes from a fine yeast sediment in the body of the beer. Some of the yeast seems to be pushed up towards the head by the aggressive carbonation. This beer looks to be full of life. Smell: The aroma is of floral and spicy almost grassy hops with a pale base of biscuity malt. Taste/Palate: There is a nice balance of spicy yeast with hints of fruit and biscuity maltiness. This has light sweetness that dries out for a snappy dry finish. The carbonation is lively and the palate is crisp. Notes: Great Divide Is right on with very tasty farmhouse ale!!!

Well crafted saison. Lemon verbena nose with some dried herbs. Medium bodied with a bit too much sweetness on the palate. Medium finish.

maltdog (618) - Colorado, USA - SEP 22, 2011
Bottle into tulip. Straw colored with floaties, highly carbonated, an endlessly morphing two finder head. Musky, spicy/floral aromas- I get yeast, cantaloupe, barnyard, violet, caramel, wet wool, metal shavings, sycamore tree… Flavor is much more crisp and fruity than I expected from the nose; sweetish, citric, chamomille and pepper, lychee, five spice. The palate is light, gassy, and sharp as ice shards. Kind of a Sprite and brettanomyces aftertaste. Leaves the tounge tingling. A complex and refreshing beer that is exemplary of the style. Even better than Saison Dupont.

Bright Saison, great for a spring ale for sure. The farmhouse floral is a touch fruity but with a wheat body.
