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

From the tap room. Pours a hazy golden color. Lots of yeasty aroma. The flavor is light an funky with a good bit of cloves. Not a very powerful flavor, I would like a little more strength, but overall a good beer.

CheersMate (1312) - Fremont (Seattle), Washington, USA - MAY 14, 2009
Very big yeast aroma. Very sweet aroma as well. Hard to determine the sweet aromas, but they are noticeable. Maybe a spicy apple acidic aroma. Pungent aroma that is fairly decent. Haze yellow in appearance. Very weird yeast flavor. A short lived flavor. For $7 for a 22 oz. this beer could be a lot better. Shame on Great Divide. Not a very smooth aroma. It just kind of gives a subtle carbonated bite then dies down. The yeast taste lingers throughout, and then that sharp acrid flavor just cuts through. Decent brew.

troopie (2291) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - JUN 1, 2009
Bottle. Poured cloudy yellow with frothy white head. Aroma of spice, fruit and a yeasty whiff. Tart flavour, fruit, spice, citrus. Something off, not sure what, in the finish. Possibly the inclusion of rice in the mix. Refreshing on a hot day.

eaglefan538 (2904) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 19, 2009
Poured a hazy pale yellow color, nice head but below a full saison head. The aroma was hefe-like with only gentle funk, yeasty. The flavor was lemon, bananas, grass, and more yeast. The mouthfeel was mildely carbonated for the style, some dryness in the finish, but more lemongrass than anything. A decent brew, but not outstanding within the style.

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - JUL 28, 2009
22oz bomber served in a tulip. Lightly hazed golden pour with a thick head of fizzy off-white foam that slowly faded away. Spotty lace. The aroma had flowers, light honey, wheat, and light citrus. The flavor was light and crisp. Notes of lemony citrus, grass, and spicy yeast. Also some lightly toasted wheat. The yeast is fairly subdued. Light to medium-bodied. Brisk carbonation. I was hoping for a little more complexity. Simple and easy-drinking.
