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.

Bif (1310) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 6, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy light golden color with a thick head that fades to some lacing. Aroma primarily of yeast with fruit in the background. Taste is similar with yeast and a fruity sweetness. Has a nice tart touch with a dry finish. Moderate body, tart, but quite smooth and refreshing. There is no hint of the 7.3% ABV. Enjoyable beer nice take on the style.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - APR 2, 2014
This is a solid and complex beer with bits of funk, bits of tartness, bits of fruit and citrus and a nicely spicy finish. I’m liking it quite a bit.

Cornfield (5362) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2014
B0mber: Yell0w and hazy b0died with a 2-finger head, this had a clean funk (?) ar0ma with s0me fl0ral scents, a hint 0f h0neyed bread, and a quiet fruitiness. That describes much 0f the flav0r, which saw the additi0n 0f a hint 0f lic0rice and a citric bitterness. Dry finish. Pretty nice.

Pretty yeasty! Nice opaque yellow color. Smells like cereal with a tinge of honey. There’s a faint lemony taste. Very earthy.
