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.

KajII (780) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JUL 10, 2012
Bottle. The pour was a hazy yellow with a huge (3-4 finger) white pillowy head that lasted a little while, receding to a large puddle and collar of residue, which had good spotty lacing. The aroma was of light grain and cereal malts, herbal hops and a funky Brett yeast with notes of citrus (orange and lemon), and a hint of spice (coriander and clove). The taste was a little sweet and a tad sour with a hint of citrus at first and then became rather hoppy with a slight bitter lemon peel presence and a mild peppery spice ending. The flavor lasted an average time proceeding the swallow, with a hoppy slightly sour peppery taste left to settle on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was just beyond light in body with a smooth dry texture and a prickly carbonation. Overall a refreshingly different Saison, with a nice sour spicy taste that had an outstanding blending with the hops...

60minuteman (698) - Frazer, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2014
750 ml bomber. Yellow in color with sustained 2 finger head practically the whole cup full. Mild spice, clove, grass and other earth things, banana, lemon/orange peel, grapefruit, or I could just say fruit salad. But it isn’t too sugary or too fruity. Duration is medium. Medium bubbles. Good texture. Solid brew

TET (1576) - FINLAND - JUL 8, 2014
A yellow beer with a soapy and big bubbled, blond head. The head is decreasing to normal and medium. The nose is fruitfull, spicy, some sweet fruits, also some unfamiliar citrusfruits. Taste is strongly spicy, fruits, sourness and citrusfruits. Medium bodied, slightly sparkling and fresh carbonation. Strong and spicy saison. Good but not a brilliant.

RedSox2004 (1214) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Hazy golden orange with a foamy white head and moderate lace. Aromas of citrus - mostly orange -, yeast, banana, and floral hops. Some barnyard funk accompanies a modestly sweet malt profile that includes orange rind and floral hop bitterness. Medium to full body, brightly carbonated, soft and smooth and slightly slick mouthfeel, and a bright brett finish.

John25 (379) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle. Straw golden with a dark hue. Aroma is yeasty with spice, and wheat. The taste adds some earthy hops and a sweet finish. The carb is very high which adds to the complexity. This is a very nice, refreshing saison. Good stuff ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mgajdaczewa (457) - Katowice, POLAND - JUN 22, 2014
Bardzo owocowy aromat, winogrona, brzoskwinia, grejpfrut, lekka dzikość, świetnie skomponowany. W smaku bardzo orzeźwiające, goryczka wysoka, może ciut przesadzona i lekko zalegająca. Nuty owocowe fajnie komponują się z chmielem. Świetnie pijalne.

Some lemon yeasty aromas with banana and nutty as well. Slight sweet finish, some slight lemongrass in there as well. Full bodied and enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
