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

Pours cloudy yellow with a white head. Lemon tart with a touch of funk. A more aggressive saison. Like a west coast American style.

dagimp (839) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2012
From a twelver into a snifter. Pours a slightly hazy yellow. Fizzy inch plus of head and no lacing. Mild aroma of funk and lemons. Mouthfeel is waaaaaaay too fizzy. Taste of bread, mild lemons, funk, seltzer and dank. Meh, was hoping for better. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

icehawk (834) - Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - JUL 4, 2013
Bottle
Appearance: Hazy straw with a quickly disappearing white foamy head.
Aroma: Yeast, sulfur
Taste: Lively mouthfeel, thin body, starts a bit start, but finish and aftertaste is slightly sweet fruit.
Palate: The fruity finish is really unique... starts like a pretty standard saison, but the finish is a real kicker.

RickTStiles (826) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 28, 2010
pours a golden-yellow with a thick, frothy white head and some decent lacing. aroma is very crisp and citric with notes of belgian yeast. Clean refreshing taste, high carbonation. Notes of lemon, yeast, and hints of another grain or spice... rice perhaps? finish is rounder than I would expect with some nice bitterness and lingering yeast.

rader58 (823) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - JUN 9, 2010
Pours a cloudy very pale yellow almost with a milky white appearance. Aroma of spices, coriander, citrus. Very nice and intense nose. Flavor is strong citrus and spice. Finish is coriander and nutmeg, but with a full lemon flavor. Very good.

12 oz bottle. Pale gold pour with a fairly thin head and limited retention. Nose was typical saison but with more lemon and citrus notes. A bit sour on the nose. Taste followed the nose but with less of the tartness and more of the lemony, grainy presence. Pretty damn good for a larger produced micro saison.

AlabastorJones (812) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 17, 2015
foggy yellow, big rocky white head, nose is tart belg yeast, sweet maltose, belg tripel flavor... i understand that nobody in the us wants to fugg with brett in the brew house, but why claim "farmhouse ale"? Seems stupid to me, i mean i know a lot of breweries do this - to the point that i avoid "farmhouse ales" even though I actually love a real, true farmhouse ales. Out of respect for the style, I will slaughter all fake saisons.

CampesinoTino (799) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 23, 2012
Bottle. Appearance is a bright pale yellow and gold color with an inch of off-white foam. Aroma is sharp and yeasty with notes of citrus peel, pear and clove. The taste starts out tart and acidic with a blend of lemon, white grape, green apple and honey malt sweetness. Also a bit of pepper and spice from the yeast. As expected, there’s lots of lively carbonation in the body along with a dry, tart finish. Gets the job done as a thirst quencher.

J_man (796) - Tustin, California, USA - JUL 13, 2011
Clean, salty sea air aroma rising off a hazy and highly effervescent pale yellow body topped with a finely laced white head. Herbaceous and grassy with a light sour barnyard flavor with some of that saltiness in the background. The high carbonation give the beer a very creamy texture for such a light beer. Floats away leaving just a light bitterness along with the earthy qualities behind. Very tasty and refreshing.

beerbastard (794) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUL 26, 2015
12oz bottle, Hazy pale straw pour with small ring. Mild funky farmhouse with juicy fruit followed by citrus aromas. Mix of Brett with bubblegum and citrus flavors. Semi sweet with a touch of tart. Smooth and good. Will but more.
