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.

Nice color and body. Alot of Belgian yeast flavor for a saison. Plenty of spices, citrus rind and zest. Biscuit malts, fair hops. Short finish

They call this a farmhouse ale but this is much better than any farmhouse ale I've had. Taste of honey but not sweet. A light spiciness like pepper and an apricot or orange finish I think. Great beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Old rating. Nice fruity saison. Big grapefruit, spice, orange peel, yeast. Very fruity overall. Drinkable, but slightly heavy for a saison.

12 oz pour from refrigerated bottle into stemmed tulip. Hazy/opaque. Dark straw/yellow. Moderate pour produces strong head; dissipates fairly quickly. No lacing. Nose is citrus, floral, maybe hay or grass. Mouthfeel, surprisingly creamy for a farmhouse. For the style, moderate-to-low carbonation. Taste is nice. Strong orange citrus, floral, a little strawberry, and a bitter hops aftertaste.

Immediately right after opening the bottle you get citrus, grapefruit and spices aroma. Pours clear , gold hue with a good white head. Head retention is ok, dissipates rather quick. Taste of citrus, grapefruit, spices, yeast, slightly bitter/sour and Orange zest. Crisp feel in the mouth with a slight dryness at the end. As a saison it’s not my favorite but it’s within my top 5. This is definitely a brew that can be enjoyed year round. Glad I was able to get a few packs.

Draft at Good Dog. Tulip. Very hazy yellow orange pour with a foamy white head. Lots or orange and grapefruit here. Feels more like a fruity wheat beer. Hints of passionfruit and chanterelle mushrooms.

Smells and looks like a wheat beer with the cloudy color, smell and taste are fruitier than normal though...quite good! Diminishes with time though...gets more of something (yeasty?)

kjc51478 (439) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - FEB 24, 2015
12 oz Bottle. Appearance is hazy, golden color with light, off-white head. Aroma is heavy on the yeast and citrus with some banana and spice notes. Taste is fruity, sweet with balancing tartness with an earthy complexity. Palate is medium-bodied, thin texture, mild carbonation, and a tart finish.

Cybercat (3734) - Georgia, USA - FEB 15, 2015
Growler. Pours hazy golden with a decent, frothy eggshell head. Aroma has fruity and yeasty notes riding a malty undertone. Crisp flavor has a strong fruity core of pear, banana and apple with tart citrus and wheaty hints. Texture is firm, though fizz is not strong or persistent. Brings a bit of summer into a chilly winter.

Pours hazy yellow with a huge white head. Aroma is dry, and light wheaty flavoured with citrus and estery. Taste is dry, citric and slight spiced. Light peppery and yeasty finish.

glennmastrange (2368) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - FEB 12, 2015
Bottle. Moderate malt and hops aromas of hay, grass and lemon, with hints of pear and vinegar. Head is small, fizzy, white with spots of lacing and good legs, and is fully diminishing. Color is sparkling clear light amber. Flavor starts slightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes slightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic. Palate is on the lighter side of medium, slick with a fizzy carbonation. Great flavors and aromas, with a pleasant palate make this a perfect go-to Saison.
