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

Tap at the source with willyP and wanderkate. Snifter glass. Cloudy appearance with a pineapple like color. Slight froth. Aroma is a slightly muted spiciness with citrus undertones. Tastes like a near perfect representation of the style. Good citrus lemon notes with the saison spice qualities featured. Well balanced. Highly recommended from a really good brewery.

Pretty standard when it comes to "farmhouse" ales. Some bubblegum sweetness, breadiness, and no hops to speak of. It’s sweet and pleasant. Not a bad beer just the same as all the others.

puboflyons (2489) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 31, 2015
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is a milky pale yellow with a tremendous white head and some sediment deposits in the bottom. Distinctively Belgian aroma of toasted pale malts, bread, yeast, pear, and thin grassy hops. Medium to bold body. The taste is toasty and sweet with a mildly dry finish. Not tart or sour in the last lie some Farmhouse ales can be.

mkel07 (4256) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 14, 2015
Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique 140515. Don’t see many Great Divide beers out this way but the ones that you do are always very good, as is this one. Clear golden colour with a limited white head. Tropical fruit in the nose. The flavour fills the mouth with fruit and alcohol, a great combination.

Tap. Light golden pour with minimal head. Apple cider, vinegar, wheat. Great carbonation. Sweet and sour finish. Refreshing but finish is a bit sweet for me

Light with a mild spice and hints of apple and a slight tartness. Crisp dry finish.
