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.

It pours a golden color with some hazing. It has a large, pillow head with minimal lacing. It has aromas of citrus fruit spices, a bit of floral, yeast, and a hint of lemon. It has initial citrus flavors with lemon, tart sensation after the first tastes, earthly elements, and some hints of salt. It is highly carbonated, has a light moderate feel, and a dry finish.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2015 Bottle. Hazy yellow with a small white head that lasts in a ring. Aromas of spice, wheat, lemon, yeast and light earthy notes. Taste is sweet citrus, lemon, spices, and bread. Light to medium bodied, smooth with a dry end. Lingering spice and bread.

Bottle. Some socks. Lemony. Nice light tartness. A little sulfury, but in a good way. Grainy and dry.

Keg. Hazy yellow gold and a thick off white head. Nose is like hay and straw steeped in marzipan. More marzipan in the mouth with some banana leaves. Drinks really nice and belies its ABV.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2010 Bottled 04-09. Pours a hazy, straw color with an average, white, fizzy head which is nearly all diminishing and leaves no lace. Nose carries mostly floral hops, some corn, and faint esters, maybe some paint notes too... Flavor is better but still not to my liking; creamed corn, light lemon, faint banana esters, and minimal hops with a light bitterness. Palate is light to medium, quite lively, and watery texture with hints of dryness. Finishes average with mostly the light tartness and light herbal bitterness. A big disappointment for me, nothing resembling a saison; the tartness is minimal, the bitterness is minimal, and there is none of the typical spice and herbs. Maybe I was a bit too harsh on this one but the corn and paint notes were hard to get over. I tried this as Colette and the only things I would change about my rating is the appearance is nicer and the paint notes are not there. Better but nothing much still

12 oz pours a cloudy yellow color with a nice white head. Aromas of fruit, wheat, lemon. Light bodied, but complex, with a nice tart finish

bottled on 4/15 - This brew pours a pale golden body with a relatively short-lived white cap of head. The aroma is very yeasty, spicy and phenolic with a lot of fruity esters. A lot of clove, banana, some band-aid rubbery-ness, very grassy and buttered biscuit maltyness. I could crush this beer like I would a Belgian Witt. I do suspect a Belgian Wit Ale yeast and a German Hefe yeast are two of the yeasts here, as it has so many similarities. Nice beer, but not as fused as many Saisons, and for $6.99 a 22oz, I can think of a few other Saison styles I may pick up before this one… but once more, still a Nice indulgence!
