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 treatsa beer as refreshing as it is complex. 7.3% ABV.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a tulip glass. Information on the bottle includes a short description of the beer, a "Bottled On" date and the abv% (7.3). Appearance: From the pour it produces a big billowy head of white foam over a hazy golden honey colored body. The haze comes from a fine yeast sediment in the body of the beer. Some of the yeast seems to be pushed up towards the head by the aggressive carbonation. This beer looks to be full of life. Smell: The aroma is of floral and spicy almost grassy hops with a pale base of biscuity malt. Taste/Palate: There is a nice balance of spicy yeast with hints of fruit and biscuity maltiness. This has light sweetness that dries out for a snappy dry finish. The carbonation is lively and the palate is crisp. Notes: Great Divide Is right on with very tasty farmhouse ale!!!

Dave from Great Divide bought me my round at Kraftworks. Aroma of citrus and belgian yeast. Pours yellow and hazy with a medium fluffy head. Bold taste of light citrus, nutmeg and yeast. Kicks you in the mouth and stays there. Yummmm. Thanks, Dave.

Bottle into tulip. Straw colored with floaties, highly carbonated, an endlessly morphing two finder head. Musky, spicy/floral aromas- I get yeast, cantaloupe, barnyard, violet, caramel, wet wool, metal shavings, sycamore tree Flavor is much more crisp and fruity than I expected from the nose; sweetish, citric, chamomille and pepper, lychee, five spice. The palate is light, gassy, and sharp as ice shards. Kind of a Sprite and brettanomyces aftertaste. Leaves the tounge tingling. A complex and refreshing beer that is exemplary of the style. Even better than Saison Dupont.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 This one is great! Youre in for a treat. Aroma is of citrus, a little funk, and dough (yeast notes). Pours a pale golden thats clear with a white head. A slight sour tartness with lots of fruity, yeast attributes and a tiny bit of indistinguishable funk. Finishes dry and sweet. Nice!

Crisp, fruity ale. The fruit doesn't overpower. A welcome taste. A gold standard for saison beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is yeast, white pepper, apple, white peach, white tea. Flavor is apple, white tea, white pepper, yeasty protein, save blanc, cereal. Yeah, I said white a lot. Medium to light body, good carbonation. Very clear appearance, like pale apple juice. The best 6 pack saison I have ever had.

12 Fl OZ ($12 6pack) an absolute great beer for the hot weather. Has a high ABV and is super drinkable. Flavor is very good, has the right farmhouse hops and yeast to produce the perfect taste. First beer Ive had from the maker and it is excellent.
