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.
2010 GABF Silver Medal Winner

Bottle to glass. First time trying a saison. Aroma is grassy and barnyard hay. Some fruity hints too? I could not coax a head, though I poured relatively hard. It pours a very cloudy yellow. Taste is bitter and sour. A slick, somewhat sticky mouthfeel, flat carbonation. Not a fan of the saison.

Palme (3945) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2016
0.355l bottle @ Hotel Room, NYC. This is a cloudy looking one, yellowish strawish in color and a really good looking near fluffy bright white lasting head on the top that’s really leaving laces and dots down the sides if the glass. The aroma is yeasty, saisonish, farmhousey and funky. Fruity ripe zest and a nice sweetness also. Tangerines and sweet papaya with hints of arugula. Nine. It’s above average on the carbonation and it has a good oily texture in the mouth. Sweeter than I thought. Sweet Tangerines, lots of nice yest. It has sweet berries, dragonfruit and wet grass. Lingering flavors. Like it even if it’s a tad too sweet. 21.06.2015
