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.

From bottle, very little head, Very citrusy aroma, medium fruity body, orange peel finish. My first farmhouse ale, very refreshing. Good flavor without being too substantial

12oz can...Pale yellow with a nice funky aroma. Yeast, earth, funk, and spice greet your tastebuds and a pleasant tartness develops on the swallow. Finishes clean, crisp and dry. Excellent example of the style.

Aroma is heavily citrus and funk, taste is a bit of lemon, a lot of banana, and a bit of spice. Not bad, but not great.

juffage (163) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2015
On keg at Brew Dog, Leeds. Only a US brewery would make something like this. It’s vaguely "Belgian", but in no one specific way. Kinda Dupont-y saison vibes but sweeter/denser, or like a drier, more peppery Duvel. Kind of weiss-y too. A melange. Banana peel. Lemons. A little too sweet. Eh.

mjs (5614) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 9, 2015
(Keg at BrewDog Helsinki, 20150909) The beer poured cloudy and pale orange. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness, tartness and spiciness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, spiciness, tartness, grass, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was tart and bitter. A very tart brew to be called as a Saison but still an enjoyable one.
