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.

Lilja (2667) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2016
Mixpack, Brewer’s pick, Privatimport Great Brands. Smak och doft av humle, vete, jäst, citron, citrus, grön banan med toner av torkade aprikoser och kryddor. Fruktig, frisk, brödig, lagom sötma och tack och lov utan koriander, fin beska. Gott!

Can. Pours a sparkling golden color with generous off-white head and lively carbonation. Spicy yeasty aroma with some fruitiness. Somewhat sweet flavor with a touch of tartness. Fruity with some spices. Medium bodied with a dry finish. Pretty good.

McGarnigle (613) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 7, 2016
From a 12-pack. This is a nice saison. I don;t get much tart, but plenty of fruity (tropical) and spicy (coriander?) esters. The yeasts are doing their job. Finishes dry.

Vignale (3259) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 3, 2016
Mixpack, Brewer’s pick, Privatimport Great Brands. Disig gyllengul medelhögt vitt skum. Doft av vete, banan, kryddor, lite friska blommor, citrus d v s ungefär som en wit. Smakbilden liknar också en wit fast lite kraftfullare men bevarad friskhet vilket inte är dåligt för en öl som tickar in på 7,3% abv. Riktigt fin jästkaraktär, mycket vete, kryddor och blommor, lite jordig. Riktigt gott.

Palme (4076) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2016
0.355l bottle @ Hotel Room, NYC. This is a cloudy looking one, yellowish strawish in color and a really good looking near fluffy bright white lasting head on the top that’s really leaving laces and dots down the sides if the glass. The aroma is yeasty, saisonish, farmhousey and funky. Fruity ripe zest and a nice sweetness also. Tangerines and sweet papaya with hints of arugula. Nine. It’s above average on the carbonation and it has a good oily texture in the mouth. Sweeter than I thought. Sweet Tangerines, lots of nice yest. It has sweet berries, dragonfruit and wet grass. Lingering flavors. Like it even if it’s a tad too sweet. 21.06.2015

Tap at Oliver Twist last weekend. Hazy, pale golden with white head. Slightly woody aroma with grass, pepper, yeast and citrus. Similar taste with more fruitiness than aroma. Quite dry. Light, slightly peppery finish.
