This beer is brewed in the Belgian Saison style (country farm house ale). A potent yet delicate ale, brewed with a unique Belgian yeast which develops a spicy, fruity flavor. Enormously complex. Available from May to around August.

Decent saison. Correct characteristics but not very well rounded. Nothing above average.

Beerathon (1184) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Slightly hazed gold with frothy white head. Belgian yeast in nose, sweet tangy flavor, hay, banana. Not a good representation of the style.

bkurtz (804) - PERU - SEP 24, 2014
Bottle - Pours a clear golden with a smallish white head. Sweet aroma with caramel. Interesting, cider notes and yeast. Tangy with a smooth finish. Not particularly well made, but I like it.

jrodooo5 (1025) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - SEP 17, 2014
Attractive orange pour w/ a white head that leaves lacing. The aroma is of mild spice. The taste is almost peppery. A little different for a saison but not bad. Not the easiest on the palate but i still enjoyed this!

phaleslu (6551) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 16, 2014
Draft sample at Cincy Beerfest 2014 on Fountain Square. Pours a cloudy gold with a small white head. Notes of bread, banana, fruity esters, citrus zest, florals, and mellow spice. Medium-bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry, sweet, estery mouthfeel. Assertive Belgian-style saison.

ordybill (101) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - SEP 15, 2014
Poured from a 12OZ bottle into a pint glass. This is a slightly cloudy golden colored beer. Lightly carbonated with some sediment, has a nice white head. A pretty good saison with a hint of fruit b the tongue.

BierMeHoos (107) - Maryland, USA - SEP 2, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Pours a dark gold color. The aroma and flavor has doughy yeast, spices, clove, and tons of fruit. Kind of strange but in a good way. Not a top tier beer but pretty decent.

2014-08-15. Hazy yellow body with a small white head. Aroma is moderate, lemony and cereally pale malt. 3+ Flavour is similar with a lightly fruity lemon character over a pale malt core. Average bodied palate, modest carbonation. Bottle at Campground Brewdown

Not sure about this one HS. Sure, nothing offensive about this spicy, sweet saison, but it just doesn’t do much for me. Pretty high ABV hidden well. An okay brew, but not a style in HS’s wheel house. Serving: multi 12oz bottle experience.
