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.

Tasting at Chez Bruce. Hazy gold beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is airy and light, fine carbonation. Light floralness and a good winey tang. Mellow fruits underneath. Airy finish brings touches of yeast and spice. Joins up well.

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.

Leighton (18221) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2014
Bottle shared in London - big thanks to Kenny. Pours unclear gold with a soft, frothy white head. Delightful aroma aroma with subtle funk, lemon, tangerine. Light to medium sweet flavor with light citrus tang, mild lemon rind, a bit of alcohol warmth, white grape. Medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Lightly warming to finish with some woody elements, peach, lemon, subtle grass and hay. Very nice.

Taste comprises apricot, peppery notes, spice, touch of sugar, grass, farmy. Medium bodied with fine carbonation, crisp in the finish. A decent saison delivering it’s name in it’s taste!

brokensail (15754) - Dublin, California, USA - APR 8, 2013
Bottle @ Oakquinox 2013. Hazy golden orange pour with a white head. Nose is quite fruity and apricot forward. A bit of pear and apple as well. Sweet bread, wood, and lots of pepper. Some hints of wine and citrus zest. The flavor is a little bit bitter and alcoholic. Decent apricot flavor, but too much pepper and grass. Astringent grain husk notes, some bread sweetness, and a bit of oak.

bhensonb (13980) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 16, 2012
Capped 750 from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours hazy orange gold with a creamy white head. Aromas of ripe light stone fruit and light spice. Med body. It is peppery, detectably apricot and somewhat barnyard. Rather delicate. The pepper builds with time.

mcberko (13952) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 17, 2013
750mL bottle, pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out brett, moderate apricot, and no pepper notes. Flavour is surprisingly clean, bringing out loads of brett, moderate pepper, a hint of the apricots, and moderate chardonnay barrels. The brett is upfront, followed by the pepper. The apricots are very far back and the wine barrels accentuate everything. Very well-constructed, with a super dry palate. Excellent stuff.
