COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Complex flavors and aromas come from a variety of sources. Barley malt and wheat help create a smooth body and attribute a pleasant golden hue while the addition of malted rye and oats brings out a solid earthy flavor. Czech Saaz Hops help create a citrus nose. What makes this beer truly special is the Saison Ale yeast strain used to ferment this beer. The subtle hints of tangerine, peach and licorice are the hallmarks of this particular yeast.

[Bottle] Orange colored pour with a fizzy head on top. Aromas of yeast, floral notes and light spice. Clean flavors of sweet caramel malts, spicy hops, yeasty phenols and lemongrass. Lively carbonation. Sweet and yeasty finish. Good, but not a very complex saison.

Huhzubendah (2820) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 16, 2014
On draft at Milwaukee Ale House. The beer is copper with a small, off-white head. Fruity aroma with some yeast, bread. Too sweet, no funk presence. This is a saison? Odd flavor, some stone fruits and unusual earthy flavors. Not digging this one. And whatís with the name? Thereís nothing "Booyah" about this one. Move along folks...

Indra (2693) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - DEC 3, 2014
12oz. bottle. Aroma of malt sweetness, big yeast profile with notes of honey, caramel, tons of clove, fruity esters, spice and some very faint grassy, herbal hop. Clear medium amber in color, no head whatsoever (although the glass was wet). Flavor profile shows some citrus, caramel sweetness, honey, plenty of spice, grainy malts, toasty and full, bitterness is mild overall, Some tea leaf flavors in the finish, amidst the clove and banana. Carbonation is low, somewhat thin in feel and with a medium body. Not like anything Iíve had before!

On tap at Old Fashioned, pours a clear golden with a thin head, the aroma has some fruity touches and yeast, the flavor has a ton of barnyard funk with must, kind of dirty tasting, really didnít dig this one all that much.

12 oz bottle I picked up at the pig. Pours a cloudy amber color with a small white head that has good retention. The aroma is slightly spicy with white pepper and some fruity grains(Belgian Pils?). The flavor is complex and features white fruits, pears, apples and apricots giving way to peppery hops and nutty yeasts. Somewhere in there is a bit of biscuit. The palate is medium with lively carbonation. Finishes incredibly long and dry with lingering pepper. Overall: Wow, xcellent saison, I loved it.

So, it is kind of a big complex big yeasty flavored thing and kind of a not complex sweet very fizzy thing. Fruitiness in either case, not sure if it was rather good or not so good. Serving: Bottle

Amber pour with a light beige head. Aroma is a slight funk, yeast fruit. Taste is light fruit, refreshing, palette cleansing. Tasty with nice lacing.
