COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The River House Saison is a pale colored and sessionable beer at about 5% abv. We created this beer to satisfy the thirst of both aficionados and novices. The River House Saison is something refreshing and easy drinking, but with an exciting and fascinating flavor. A special yeast blend created by Martin House gives this beer hints of pepper and earthiness. Plenty of flavor and aroma hops yield a floral, spicy, and citrusy essence.

BMan1113VR (7853) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 16, 2013
On tap at BTBF. Pours with a hazed golden hued body with a lasting white head. Aromas are grassy and grainy with medium strong esters (isoamyl acetate a bit strong among those), dry sage, black pepper, lightly leathery. Flavors are dry, fusel alcohol, peppery, a bit of harsh esters. Feels like it is missing a malt back bone (not sweetness, just something else as right now it is watery and a bit thin with some stressed yeast notes). Thin bodied with lively carbonation.

Poured from the can. Taste is grass, leaves, funk, bubblegum, grain and a bit of booze. Solid, easy drinking beer.

Hazy gold pour with a nice white head. Aroma is some funk and banana, a little dusty. Taste has a nice dry funkiness to it. There’s some citrus and a little clove there. Dry palate. Nice beer.

Comes out of the tap a completely opaque honey ochre - bartender said the keg had been shaken so there was quite a bit of sediment, but I don’t mind if the beer is good. Aroma has a strong fruity overtone, mainly apple with some banana, and a yeasty undertone like a wheat. Mouth-filling flavor floods the palate with wheat, yeast, banana and a little apple plus a honey hint. Thick texture leaves a firm and persistent tingle. Definitely a sipping beer.
