This beer is our version of a strong palish Belgian Saison. We have chosen to give this beer a pale and light profile and let the yeast display its full spicy flavors. We have also added some coriander for more complexity. This will develop some tartness given the time.

Cloudy yellow pour with a medium white head. Pleasant aroma of lemon, yeast and coriander. Good flavor of lemon, coriander and yeast with a mild bitter finish. This saison is reasonnably dry. The body is light to medium with a slightly creamy texture and lively carbonation. This is not a great saison by all means, but it’s a pleasant thirst quencher.

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2015 Tasted again 10/1/2015, batch #849. No lacteal notes, much more balanced sweetness, nice dry finish, better score than last. Bottle from brewery, batch #904. Aroma is typical belgian yeast, barnyard, sweet caramel, hay, some spice, citrus zest, hints of banana and bubbelgum. Orange golden, cloudy, small white head. Medium sweetness, medium/light bitterness, taste is light sweet caramel, white bread dough, some banana, bubbelgum, citrus zest, coriander, white pepper. Medium body, fizzy but good mouthfeel, dry, some bitterness in aftertaste. Good strong saison, maybe too much sweetness, some disturbing lacteal notes.

Sampled from a 50cl bottle purchased at Sola duty free. Pours a very hazy orange-gold with a white head. Medium carbonation and some quite heavy sediment. Lovely fruity aromas and typical Belgian yeast taste, with notes of banana, orange, coriander (one of the ingredients) and cloves. Great mouthfeel, and really well balanced. It has an excellent finish based on a rich hop taste. An excellent Belgian-style beer with very high drinkability.
