COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by crisp white wines, Saison Blanc features New Zealand hops, golden raisins and white pepper for a decidedly bright, spicy, and robust low ABV beer. Finished with Brettanomyces at packaging, this beer will evolve for many more years to come.

Dogbrick (7244) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 20, 2013
This beer pours a slightly cloudy straw color with a medium white head that dissipates steadily to a wispy film. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of hay, fruit and yeast. Light-bodied with flavors of peppercorn, yeast and citrus. The finish is dry with a peppery yeast aftertaste. Decent overall.

Bottle shared with Pat and Sean. Pours a bright hazy body with thin white lacing. Aroma is lemon, light funk character, spice and wheat. Mouthfeel is medium with active, prickly carbonation and notes of dry citrus, wheat, vague funk and pepper.

patrickfannon (1230) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Bottle. Shared by James with Sean and me during the Eagles - Cowboys game. Pours turbid, pale whitish yellow with a tuft of creamy head. Aroma of golden raisin, honey, and Belgian spice. Clean and light with some hay and dry, almost chalky spice. Not much sweetness, which I kind of like. Solid saison. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pour out of 375 mL bottle, hazy yellow pour with fluffy white head, aroma brought notes of lemon, biscuit, bread, hints of slight pepper, oak, raisin notes come through, touch of grain and spice notes, pretty nice. Taste is a mix of white pepper, biscuit, cracker, touch of raisin, hints of slight phenols, touch of earth, finishing with some lemon, biscuit. Pretty nice.

JPDurden24 (1491) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - OCT 15, 2013
Hazy dark yellow pour with a foamy white head. Aroma is funky and yeast and hay. Some nice citrus, pepper and funk in the flavor. A little over priced, but pretty damn tasty.

BOLTZ7555 (2706) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 13, 2013
14 karat pour with a dense ivory crown. All of the typical characteristics: tart citrus, earthiness, lemon zest, pepper, yeast, hay, biscuit, and funk. Nothing unique to differentiate this from every other Saison on the market. Highly drinkable, crazy price tag, on par with the style.

Bottle. Pours cloudy yellow/orange, with a large, white head. Aroma is hops, spices, and fruit. Flavor is fruit, hops, spices, malt, and yeast. Medium body, fairly long finish.

Pours a hazy golden yellow color with huge foamy rocky head. Aroma is huge on the white pepper. Some mild yeast phenolic a and sweet malt character. Flavor has a good amount of peppery notes and some mild diacetyl flavor present. Cheese like flavor.

Homer321 (991) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Bottle thanks to drewface. Strong white pepper in the nose. Moderately bitter and phenolic (peppery) flavors. Effervescent to the point that its hard to drink. Dry finish. Not bad but not my thing ---Rated via intercellular device
