COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"A Saison (Say-Sahn) is a Belgian Farmhouse Summer Beer. Farmhouse referring to the simple fact that very small "farmhouse" breweries typically made these beers. Lighter in alcohol, ours is 6.5% (not exactly light but that’s just us!) and golden to orange in color. Unfiltered. Ours is spiced with both Apricot puree and Black Pepper. The taste is light, refreshing and nicely fruited to start. Medium mouthfeel. After taking a drink, the black pepper dries the palate and creates a nice tingling sensation on the tongue." Non-Barrel Aged, Draft Only version.

Nebraska Abricot au Poivre aged in Chardonnay barrels. 6.8% This beer pours a beautiful honey gold with a thick white head that leaves soapy lacing behind. Great aroma of fruity Chardonnay, white pepper and apricots. A bright joyful aroma. Effervescent with a surprising tart fruity hit, then soft oak and pepper plus funk. A somewhat sweet tartfruit characteras well. It finishes really dry, if you know a white wine drinker who hates beer give them this and you’ll change their mind in no time. Wonderful with dinner, classing up my humble donburi.

cmacklin (572) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 8, 2015
750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy, golden orange with a large, long lasting, frothy, white head that laces. Sweet aroma of apricot, pepper, oak and a light funky note. Sweet apricot flavour with oak, yeast, a hint of pepper and a dry, white wine, warming alcohol finish. Medium body with an oily texture and average carbonation. Not bad.

Earlier Rating: 10/10/2011 Total Score: 4
Bottle. Cloudy straw colored, fluffy white head with solid lacing. Aroma of light spice and summer fruit. Apricot really comes out in the flavor, more like dried apricots and white wine. Interesting stuff. Fruit is not overwhelming, and neither is the barrel.

Bottle shared by Tommy, thanks! Pours a "clear" golden but it is full of floating particles, not sure what they are but they aren’t welcome in my glass. Head is medium and it leaves nice lacing, though. Nose is fruity, peppery and lightly vinous. Taste is fruity and moderately bitter. Medium body, medium-high carbonation. Overall a good but not transcending brew.
