COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Notes of citrus, strawberry, grass, and a hint of clove make this unique Belgian style ale complex yet satisfying.

2 finger head, it’s a dark orange beer with a lot of cloudiness. smells nice, american hops, herbs, pepper, interesting bitterness with the malt bill. doesn’t come together very well. thin mouthfeel.

AirForceHops (4692) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 13, 2015
Draft @ BCTC, Ommegang Brewery. August, 8, 2015. Aroma is mostly Belgian yeast with traces of honey and hay.

Flavor shows the honey grain base with a solid yeast character, maybe some light herbal hints in the backside. Smooth carbonation level. Everything about it is subtle. Pretty standard but rather easy to drink.

mansquito (4209) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Pony Bar, Hell’s Kitchen Mahattan tap ($6): Pours hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma is bubblegum and fruit. Taste is much the same. pretty weak. The flavors don’t come together. Tastes sort of soapy. Palate and profile are pretty bland. This to me is another Kelso failure.

blipp (7084) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 10, 2012
Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Flowery and spicy yeasty aroma. The flavor has spicy yeast and grassy and floral notes. Decent.

Lubiere (11237) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 6, 2012
A hazed blonde saison with thin lacing white head. In aroma, a grassy soapy spiced malt with light cloves. In mouth, a chalky sweet malt with light spices, so-so. On tap at TAP NY, April 28, 2012.

Pouring at TAPNY. Pours a hazed gold with a thin white head. Soft wheat and musk. Medium bodied, grain and faint musk. Light lemon, musk. Grainy on the finish with a bit more muskiness coming back.

TheHopster (938) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - AUG 6, 2010
On draft at the Blind Tiger Ale House NYC. Unfiltered with a good palate. A smooth saison with subtle sweetness and mild bitterness.

popkow (302) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 26, 2010
On tap WFM into my growler. Hazy with a golden color with small white head. Light bitter taste with a lighter body than I prefer for a Saison. Carbonation was average and the finish did not linger. Average beer.
