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.

May 31st, 2011 - When Spring turns into Summer and the sun gets to be a little heavier in the sky, the fun and heady wheat beers of a month ago lose some of their potency. Something drier, with a heavier grain profile becomes a more suitable beer for cutting the sweat and anguish of an oppressive day. The Colette is a perfect fit for these transitional days, beautiful and burning bright with a dandelion yellow hue and a finger of soft, white foam. Banana and clove and a little corn tortilla rise from the surface, giving off light but coating smells. Fresh and full of grains, Great Divide did an excellent job of capturing the smell of the fields and putting that romantic image into a bottle. Full bodied and busy with a sharp and serrated aftertaste, the Colette can cut through dry mouth or thirst, with ample uplifting alcoholic corn and tortilla and flowery dandelion tastes, like bitter mizuna greens, a subtle vegetable bitterness and again, flowing dry graininess.

Poured from twelve ounce bottle into a pint glass, thank you Danny! Pours a yellow, orange, but very translucent. Has a sour aroma and a sour taste to it, a very well done Saison

Poured from a bottle. Faint banana and a bunch of cereal and wheat in the nose and flavor. Nice grassy notes and grain throughout the course of the beer. Golden hay hue with moderate head and lacing.

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.

Can that pours a cloudy yellow with white head. Traditional farmhouse aroma a little funk a little grassy and a little malty. Flavor has some banana and more of the aromas in it. Basic farmhouse ale nothing to great but not bad either.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2015 Veldig god øl, bra smak uten å få en overdøvende smak av alkoholprosenten. Verdt å prøve

dogbomb (1070) - ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2015
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.
