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.

This one poured a hazy straw yellow with a white head. Aroma was of dust, lemon, bread, and grass. Flavor was tangy bread, light fruits and mold interesting saisiny.

notalush (5352) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Pours a moderately hazy gold - slight frothy lace - nose is moderately citric (lemon, orange zest), mildly phenolic, lightly sweet, lightly grainy - a touch of mineral - the grains of paradise are medium strong and completely unnecessary - they just get in the way - full but soft and frothy carbonation in the mouth - flavor of lightly peppery phenols, mild plastic, moderate banana esters - some tangy citrus notes late, as well as a slight flintiness - light herbal notes on the tail end - medium sweet finish, with lingering spiciness - it’s okay, but not exactly to style - almost tastes more like a wit.

Bottle shared by Kevin who brought it into The Davis Beer Shoppe to share. Thanks guy! Pours translucent gold. Farmhouse aroma. Med body. Flavor is fruity and mildly farmhouse. Smoothly, lightly sweet saison. Not so earthy as some.

Purchased at Discount Liquors in Milwaukee, WI; enjoyed on a gorgeous late June Sunday afternoon after going to a birthday party while doing some laundry. Also enjoyed in my new Half Acre Belgian glass! Appearance is a bright gold, cloudy, with a thin white rim. Aroma is rich in ale yeast, citrus/lemon notes, light bit of clove, also a touch of light fruit. Taste goes down like champagne, rather bubbly, light fruit notes, bit of pepper, finishes dry. Overall it’s a decent Saison and a good brew.

tricyclist (1044) - Florida, USA - JUN 10, 2013
Sample pour of beautiful golden liquid with a full white fluffed head. Nose is light and pleasant, smooth malt with mild spices and mild sweetness. Maybe coriander, but faint. Flavor follows suit with good spices up front and a mild sweet lingering finish. Easy drinking and smooth. Well done

Pretty yellow straw color and persistent head. Light belgiany yeast nose with some white pepper. Taste follows with some bright lemon citrus and pepper. Nice summer beer.

HighWine (955) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - MAY 16, 2013
Bottle to snifter...because it was convenient! Clear apricot co,or pour with lots of bubbles streaming upward to for a dense white head. Head looks like buttercream frosting in the glass with a full coating for lace. Aroma is immediately surprising because of the banana a fruity fragrance. White wine aromas emerge with a nose int the glass. Taste is big, and yeastie with bubblegum followed by citrus pith bitterness. Out of the ordinary bit well done brew.

Pours slightly cloudy gold with a fizzy white head. Aroma of yeast, lemon and wheat. Taste is similar with a bit of peppery spice. A bit too fizzy for my taste.
