Our Summerset Saison Ale is made with traditional Saison grains of barley malt, spelt, and raw oats. We added Citra hops to both the kettle and during fermentation-along with complex rustic farmhouse yeast-giving a summer punch bowl of refreshing hoppiness. Enjoy this modern take of a classic artisan ale.

Pours a crisp orange with a big white head that leaves subtle lacing. Nose is of hay, and mildly floral. Taste is sweet with a crisp finish. Notes of hay, pale grains, a touch of floral hops, and a touch of peach and or pear. As the beer warms a bit there is a definate spice to pepper flavor that comes out in the finish. Overall this saison is on the sweeter side and is very enjoyable! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Gription79...thanks Dallas! - Light hazy yellow with a thin white head. Fresh lemongrass, herbal hops, light menthol, grainy, dusty yeast...nice. More sweetness in the taste, with herbal hoppiness, menthol, sweet malt. Pretty thick with nice carbonation. Sweeter than I would have thought, but really good stuff.

750mL bottle, no date. Clear gold with off-white, fair retention. Citra hops and rinds, some peppery yeast, but not very saison-y. Flavor follows suit, plenty of Citra going on again, some oats. Dry, bitterness at a 4. Light to moderate creamy carbonation with a medium body. Not bad.

Bottle from Gription79. This is an interesting and very good Saison. Pours a golden color with a nice fluffy white head. A thin blanket settles on top and lasts for good. The aroma shows lots of fresh citrus, with leafy notes, yeast, and a little vanilla note. This is maybe a little lighter going down than expected based on a fairly strong aroma, a good thing. Refreshing stuff yet with a lot going on. I definitely like the use of Citra hops. Itís like chewing an orange or tangerine. The finish is a bit dry with firm hop bitterness and an evergreen flavor. The flavor isnít as yeasty as the aroma; neither good nor bad, but an observation. Bottom line; tasty and refreshing stuff. Thanks Dallas!
