COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American hopped saison.

Editor’s note: The 2009+ versions are spiked with Brett at bottling. Bottles from 2009 are marked as such, although 2010 and 2011 bottles appear to not note the vintage on the label, but might be printed on the neck or base.

shoulderbroken (1909) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 13, 2013
Bottle shared at Craftheads. Bit pissed by this stage. Golden colour, big fluffy white head. Aroma is great, soft, bit creamy, slightly soapy, but in a good way. Bit cheesy. Herbal. Light berry fruitiness. Good Brett funkiness. Strawberry shortbread. Taste is very nice. Sweet fruitiness, light citrus, really nice. Very fresh, bit of creaminess, nice herbal element. Little bit of bitterness at the end but very crisp and refreshing. Great stuff.

On tap @ Lost Abbey. Cloudy golden orange pour with a white head. Nose is nice and fruity. Good peach, citrus, and just a touch of pineapple. Nice bready malt, yeast, and grass, too. Flavor is mildly bitter with some grassy and citrus peel notes. Sweet peach and pineapple as well. Light bread, cracker, and yeast. Solid carbonation. Good stuff.

Jamedra (447) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 12, 2013
Láhev 750 ml Silné aroma lučních květin, žlutého melounu a lesního ovoce. Pěna je bílá, hrubší konzistence, vysoká a držící. Barva samotného piva je krásná jasná oranžová a silně kalná. Celkově pivo na pohled dělá opravdu výtečný dojem. Pivo má střední říz, robustní kořeněný střed který má lehký nádech žlutého melounu, okraje jsou sladší s jemným limetkovým závojem. Finiš je vcelku robustně hořký a držící, není příliš příjemný. Tento saison má opravdu výborné aroma, celkový vzhled je také výtečný, tyto oba aspekty jsou u tohoto piva nadstandartní, chuť má velmi dobrý začátek a střed, krásně pestré barvy chutí, finiš oproti tomu mi přijde až příliš rázný, ale zase na druhou stranu, docela podtrhává styl farmářská ale.

tom10101 (2668) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 7, 2013
On tap @ Lord Hobo. Clear golden with a low white head and heavy lacing. Aroma is herbal with some yeastiness, cereals, light spices and some belgiumness. Taste is slightly sweet with cereals, yeast, grass, spices and bubblegum(?). Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Moderately dry finish. Good Saison. Drinkable and well balanced, but not really complex. It’s good, but a Top-50 Saison? I’m not sure.

750 bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden with minimal to no head. Aroma has faint mustiness, earthy, floral with lemon and faint banana. Taste was slightly spicy with some pepper, yeast and light barnyard flavors. Some very light floral and citrus hop flavors are present as well as a touch of banana. Smooth, slightly thick body with moderately low carbonation and a slightly dry, mildly astringent finish.
