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

mikesaum (596) - Newark, Ohio, USA - MAY 4, 2012
Pours a straw color, slightly hazy with a nice white head that dies quickly into a ring, tons of bubbles from the D in my duvel glass, aroma is a bit funky, belgian yeast, citrus, horse blanket. Taste has some nice yeast notes and a very citrus flavor, mostly lemon, refreshing and just a little funk, could have used more. Nice beer

swanmann (584) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 20, 2011
12 oz. bottled on March 3, 2011: I poured rather gently a hazy and beautifully bright golden yellow beer with a small amount of off-white suds, which dissipated rather quickly. With barely a chill it smells of some sweet fruits like oranges or bananas, with a bit of an herbal note. After a couple of quaffs I taste mild citrusy sweet/sour up front. It then fades into some citrus rind bitterness while a solid, dry almost sourdough-y essence coats the palate. The carbonation is fairly soft, yet effervescent, seems to fade quickly. The abv seems pretty well hidden. Make no mistake, this is a full-on Belgian in a 12 oz. bottle. DELICIOUS Saison.

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

Cloudy yellow with medium small white head. Floral and citrus aroma. Medium-light body. Carbonated. Flavor is mostly lemony. A little sweet but not overly so with off-dry finish. A little wheat. Not bad.

2013 draught to a snifter. Pours a hazy straw yellow with small fizzy white head. Aroma is citrus, a little barnyard funk with malt and a little tartness. Taste is the same with some grassiness and a little sweetness and some spice. Dry mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - MAY 14, 2009
Fresh yeasty dough, lemony, there are notes of cilantro as well. Cloudy burnt gold color, thick medium head. Chewy sweet raw croissant dough, some funky moldy apricots, solid bitterness to bring everything to attention. Big carbonation, medium body, slight funky lemon peel finish. Great balance of fruit, funk, and dough. Easy to drink, yet big enough to stand up to strong flavored foods, great beer. GD--More Belgian styles please!
