A Texas Saison Ale.
The River House 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 pepper and earthiness. Plenty of flavor and aroma hops yield a floral and citrusy essence.

BMan1113VR (7867) - 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.

Clear gold with a solid rocky white head. Nose has some funky leafiness with some sweet wheat tones and a little coriander and a nice belgian playfulness. The taste was mostly the same--sweet wheaty tones mixed with belgian saisons yeast and leafy grassiness for hops. Nice balance, very quaffable and pleasant to drink all around. It’s not going to blow back the hair of beer nerds but for a canned TX beer, its mighty fine.

Poured a clear yellow color from the can with aromas of grass, coriander, yeast, bubble gum and some light funk. Flavors are dirty hay and grass with some light bubble gum and yeast, light funk and spice on the back end, sold overall.

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.

On draft at Flying Saucer. Pours a straw, hazy orange with a thin head that remains throughout. Aroma of orange citrus grapefruit. Taste of light wheat, lemon, grapefruit, and water. Light smooth finish. Clean and medium light mouthfeel. Pretty nice overall but a little thin. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
