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.

Bottle. Pretty decent and light saison. Grassy, nice hints of the pepper, can somewhat fish the raisins out a bit. Good stuff, perfect summer time ale.

375 mL. Light and grassy saison. The hint of raisins and pepper is very nice. Another fantastic belgian inspired beer from the folks at LA.

arrogantb (1402) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 10, 2012
On tap at the Falling Rock and served in a pint glass. Bright yellow-orange. Smells very interesting, spicy and sweet, floral, smells good. The taste was also sweet and made me think of honey and then spices. Overall this was a nice saison although it did have a bevy of different flavors so it was a little more intense than most saisons I’m used to. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 05-08-2011 18:59:41

NikkTwist (1387) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2012
Draft. Dark gold amber pour. Foamy lacey white head. Pungent Brett barrel flavors coming off the top. Bit like a soured Chardonnay. Lots of grassy notes. Lemon pith. Straw. Earthy funk. Lots of flavor to this saison/farmhouse brew. Can see that the slightly acetic sour could turn some people off. Might be a bad pairing if you are eating something delicate. Interesting and wild. Clever but brash.

Taster at brewery. Pours a bright yellow with a foamy white head. Aroma is of bready malts, grass, citrus, some pepper, and some fruitiness. Flavor is of bready malts, grass, citrus hops, some tropical fruits, black pepper, and some sour fruits. Has a medium body with a super creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, refreshing, slightly bitter finish. overall, a pretty nice Saison that seemed hoppier then the average for the style.
