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

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!

Damico (2864) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2009
I wish there was a stronger aroma, it has a pleasing smell but not strong enough. It’s color is also not strong enough, a light yellow color. The flavor is good, but not potent enough for my personal palate. It tasted delicious though on a hot May Day of gardening.
