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

rondphoto (3962) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - DEC 17, 2015
bottle @ Jungle Jim’s / Eastgate OH --- Cloudy dirty light amber color, fluffy white head, clouds of lace. Taste is semi-sweet malt that adds a burst of carbonation in the swallow, followed by spice and yeast on the way to a very lightly hopped finish. More a witbier than a saison, but still balanced and interesting. I like it.

It pours a golden color with some hazing. It has a large, pillow head with minimal lacing. It has aromas of citrus fruit spices, a bit of floral, yeast, and a hint of lemon. It has initial citrus flavors with lemon, tart sensation after the first tastes, earthly elements, and some hints of salt. It is highly carbonated, has a light moderate feel, and a dry finish.

matta (1140) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 11, 2009
bottled on 4/15 - This brew pours a pale golden body with a relatively short-lived white cap of head. The aroma is very yeasty, spicy and phenolic with a lot of fruity esters. A lot of clove, banana, some band-aid rubbery-ness, very grassy and buttered biscuit maltyness. I could crush this beer like I would a Belgian Witt. I do suspect a Belgian Wit Ale yeast and a German Hefe yeast are two of the yeasts here, as it has so many similarities. Nice beer, but not as fused as many Saisons, and for $6.99 a 22oz, I can think of a few other Saison styles I may pick up before this one… but once more, still a Nice indulgence!
