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.

Tap at the Watery Hole. Aroma is loads of apricot, peach too, no pepper. Very strong and boozy aroma. Taste is similar, some creaminess, fruit again, of course, maybe a touch of pepper at the end, but can hardly get it. Bit too full bodied for me.

Cavie (4234) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUL 15, 2016
Tap at Kool Keg. Fairly clear orange yellow color. White head. Woody notes upfront. Fruity notes apparent; wine. Flavor is Woody, fruit and grapes, saison zest, easy finish. Nice. Some vanilla as well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jinroh (1102) - ESTONIA - JUL 14, 2016
Nicely hazy and dirty orange. Bit of foam. Fruity aroma, some sour notes but not too much of them. Taste is nicely funky, farmhouse style. Fruity and has still some malty backbone. Long malty and reward finish. Pretty nice actually.

dirty amber color. Lovely sour dry nose with oak and peaches and a bit of funk. Medium full body with tons of oak. Dry funky and tart. Big lingering peach finish. Very very nice

Aroma of white wine, fruit, banana. Appearance is a murky pink orange with white head. Taste is peppery tart fruit. Some banana and clove. Slight oakiness. Nice lively carbonation. This is awesome.

rougeau13 (2513) - Richmond, Texas, USA - APR 10, 2016
Bottle from whole foods. Chardonnay barrel aged. Hazy apricot color with a white head. Aroma of Chardonnay, apricot, light pepper and bread with a hint of banana. Tastes yeasty, fruity, and grainy with some subdued woody wine barrel and pepper. Semi-dry, a little fizzy, medium bodied. Pretty good.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4327) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 23, 2016
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.
