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

PlainsDrifter (83) - Adelphi, Maryland, USA - JUL 28, 2011
Bottle. Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a fluffy white head that lingers. Aroma of yeast, doughy, orange. Has a sour tartness to the start, smooth finish. Medium carbonation. Flavor of orange, spice, lemon grass. This isn’t my style of beer that I prefer. Too tart for my liking.

Can that pours a cloudy yellow with white head. Traditional farmhouse aroma a little funk a little grassy and a little malty. Flavor has some banana and more of the aromas in it. Basic farmhouse ale nothing to great but not bad either.

12oz bottle, Hazy pale straw pour with small ring. Mild funky farmhouse with juicy fruit followed by citrus aromas. Mix of Brett with bubblegum and citrus flavors. Semi sweet with a touch of tart. Smooth and good. Will but more.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2015 Veldig god øl, bra smak uten å få en overdøvende smak av alkoholprosenten. Verdt å prøve

dogbomb (1053) - ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2015
Keg. Hazy yellow gold and a thick off white head. Nose is like hay and straw steeped in marzipan. More marzipan in the mouth with some banana leaves. Drinks really nice and belies its ABV.

Jared_Clifton (63) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 21, 2015
Pours very light gold and hazy. Light body. Extremely refreshing upfront sweetness, wheat then a slightly tart after taste with more sweet citrus flavors.

commonmac (676) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 3, 2015
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.

Bottle. Pours crystal clear straw color with a little white head. Nose is big bubblegum. Tastes adds some pepper and a little funk. Nice.
