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

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Bulk_Carrier (3430) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - APR 18, 2016
Canned on March 23rd, 2016. This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a hazy to cloudy burnt yellow color with a thin layer of white foamy head that dissipated immediately. Light lacing speckled around the glass nicely. The smell had some bubblegum, light Belgian spices, sweet grass, and a light yeasty breadiness. The taste was mainly bready sweet with the spices coming across far underneath. Sweet bready aftertaste. Smooth wet finish. On the body, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation runs fairly light allowing spices to hit a little more on my tongue. Overall, this was a pretty good saison that I could have again.
