COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Summer Saison is a delicious golden farmhouse ale, brewed with orange peel, ginger, and grains of paradise. A very refreshing, Belgian-inspired summer ale.

Clownoisseur (264) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Aromas are pungent with hops, spice and malt sweetness. Taste is similar with too much body for my tastes. Spices and heavy malt/yeast is slightly abrasive on my palate. Drinkable as a beer, yes....but if I am looking for a Saison, I will pass this one by most likely.

Pours slightly cloudy yellow. Arouma is fruity and acidic. Ppineapple and citrus. Taste is light, with pineapple.

UXO (409) - CANADA - MAY 24, 2014
Pours a clear straw gold with two fingers of foamy white head diminishing gradually to a thin cap and spotty lacing. Nose is light, dominated by caramel malt, yeast with a little funk, orange peel and pepper. Taste follows suit, with an additional hint of coriander. Mouth feel is light with lasting carbonation and a building bitterness. Not bad, but tends to the bland side. Not bland, as such, but tending that way. The malt presence is a little too dominant, and a little more citrus and pepper would be nice.

Blond color, hazy. Light aroma of spicy yeast, medicines, and rubber. Very dry mouthfeel, highly carbonated, a bit astringent, maybe spicy; expected bitterness, with some vegetable bitterness as well.
Not pleasant.

EithCubes (5088) - New Jersey, USA - APR 18, 2014
Bomber. Nose is heavy coriander soup with not much else going for it, a waft oft yeast and spice but really, coriander soup. Light yellow pour with plenty of carbonation and a soapy white head. Taste is lightly sweet and tart, dusty with a few cobwebs, lemony citrus and a touch of vanilla cream, very low bitterness and subtle florality. Light body but not really watery, very effervescent and refreshing, no alcohol present. Clean but, all told, rather tame all around.

Howler fill at Liquor Shed in Casper. A hazy light gold pour that produced about an inch of foam but it never goes away. Lacing? Yep. It smells some what spicy with some of that ginger, coriander, hint of pepper, and a dash of lemon or orange? The taste matches the smell. Good gingery notes and oranges, The ginger gives me a little bit of heat when I swish the beer in my mouth. I donít really get any coriander but itís still a good tasting brew. Light body and carbonation. A pretty good Saison and the fact that itís only 4.2% abv is something I like aboot it. Yeah, the body does suffer but thereís no problem drinking the 32oz in one sitting.

BEENJAMIN (290) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 27, 2014
22oz bottle - poured hazy golden with a tall frothy white head. Lemon peel, orange, yeasty aroma. Flavor is slightly tart and refreshing yet a little thin and very simplistic. A decent saison none the less.

My favorite saison yet. A little watery, and had a soapy flavor, but isnt offensive like most.

Green Flash Saison Diego is more ale than farmhouse. Pour is bright amber with a fluffy white head. Very little aroma is detected. Taste is like a good ale with little or no complexity or funk and sourness. The orange peel and ginger were understated. Saison Diego is not what most would expect from a saison but good in its own right.

unclemattie (4262) - Georgia, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Narrow, Green Flash 12oz bottle. Very active carbonation, beautiful cascading bubbles from center of glassware, increasing the size of a white billowing froth. Hazy dark yellow color. Dry nose, bready/airy character, distant hints of dried lemon peel. Dry, tastes of yeast esters, far away notes of milled grains, loads of straw/hay flavor. a very good beer it enjoy with a light summer salad. (4045)
