COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

GT2 (8562) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUL 18, 2011
750mL thanks to douglas88. Pours a clear, deep gold like apple juice with a medium white head that has little retention and scant lace. Nose is fruity pineapple (Citra), Bosc pear, mild egg, with chamomile and yeast phenolic spice. Taste is pretty neutral, doughy, corny, malty with little bitterness and decent biscuity fullness unwanted for style. Not a lot of balance and a bit too much body. Comes across more as Golden Ale than Saison.

douglas88 (6151) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 3, 2011
750 ml bottle. Pours a totally clear orange color with a large white head. Some lacing. The aroma is sweet earthy grains, some citrus hops, funky, certainly a bit of barnyard in there. The flavor is a unique and awesome brew; sweet citrus, oranges and lemons, light bitterness, smooth peppery spices, very juicy, just a huge amount of flavor here. A nice easygoing and effervescent palate. Totally unique and genius- Donovan this is a homerun.

2/24/12. 750mL bottle shared by thirdeye11. Clear copper pour with a small off-white head. Fruity, estery aroma with banana and sweet sugars. Sweet, floral flavor with a touch of plastic, dry yeast, and lingering sweetness. Not too shabby.
