COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saison, the original Farmhouse Ale, was the refreshing invention of thirsty Belgian farmers. Wisconsin pale barleys brewed with Grains of Paradise in this bright new copper hued ale. Deceptively approachable, its complicated fermentation incorporates a blend of three Belgian yeast strains and is fully bottle conditioned. Fresh hops snap with lemon zest and peppery ginger notes, lending to its enigmatic personality. Enjoy, as this sassy Wisconsin Saison is at its best thirst quenching drinkability now.

12oz bottle: pours a slightly hazy pale golden with a stringy-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet biscuity malty nose with lots of clove and a touch of light fruity esters. Starts with lots of effervescent carbonation and a light malty sweetness with a healthy dose of peppery clove and yeasty esters before a drier, slightly warming bittersweet finish. Could be a little smoother with finer carbonation.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Yes! Bottle thanks to the awesome Andy and Dennetta. Pours orange-tinted mostly clear gold with a white head. Nose shows grain, pepper, some banana. On the sweet side for a saison, and certainly more of an American-style saison in my estimation, but one of the best. Lively palate. Super solid.

Aroma of citrus, lemon, pepper, spice, and hops. Dull orange in color. Taste is crisp with a zest of lemon and citrus up front with a pronounced ginger and sage with a bit of cinnamon. Light and easy on the palate.

12oz bottle pours a clear golden with a large white head. Aroma of well balancend Belgian yeast, sweet grains, and lemon citrus. Taste is crisp and dry grains, hops, and lemon, ending bitter with a nice spice, pepper, and a slight Belgian yeast. Nice Saison!

TChrome (1420) - Bedford, Texas, USA - AUG 27, 2012
Beer pours clear golden color with a minimal egg white head that is somewhat retained. Aoma is very estery with some earth and spices. Taste is bitter and lightly sweet with tons of spiciness. Finish is bone dry. I am beginning to consider Dan Carey a brewing god. This man is a genius!

joeneugs (3324) - Livermore, California, USA - AUG 25, 2012
bottle from pantanap. Thanks Kan! It pours a very effervescent light orange color with a tall white head. The aroma is lightly funky and peppery with some dried apricots and grains. The flavor is fruity, very spicy and phenolic with dried fruits, pepper, ginger and a bit of tang near the finish. The body has a lot of carbonation. A solid Saison.
