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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4919) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2012
Sampled on draft at Zeno’s in State College PA this beer poured a hazy pale yellow-golden color with a huge foamy orange-white head that left decent lacing. The aroma was dry, tart and vinegary with faint notes of apricot, date and must. The flavor was tart and musty with notes of vinegar, faint apricot. Long musty vinegar and faint vague fruit finish. Medium body. Not my style.

Strykzone (4931) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 11, 2012
Sampled at an esbls tasting. Cloudy golden with a big off white head. Basement funk nose that also has apricot. A smooth feel. This is nicely fruity and malty. That saison funkiness is authentic. I like it.
