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.

Light yellow, billowy head, pretty looking. Estery aroma, spicy, at times I wish it was slightly fruitier. Still a very solid saison.

Fruity yeasty slightly sour aroma. Cloudy gold with a lingering thick white head. Dry. Crisp. Velvety Sweet and slightly bitter finish. There is some fresh fruit in here. Very refreshing. Definitely would have been more aptly paired with spring.

brystmar (1314) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Bright, fizzy, Bretty aroma. Smells like a traditional farmhouse saison. Taste throws tradition out the window as Granny Smith apples take center stage. Mildly sweet. Blazes its own trail.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Gusher. Seim-hazy straw yellow with a very large airy head. Aroma is grainy and wild with fruit, Belgian yeast, banana, brown sugar and burnt malt. Fizzy body taste of fruit, banana, peppery notes, and yeast. Wishy-washy as I seem to like it every other sip.

jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Pours a beautiful slightly cloudy gold with a pure white head, mostly lasting, with lots of cascading bubbles up the glass. Nose is sweetness and fruitiness. Very creamy on the palate. The taste full of fruits, sweet breads, spices (clove?ginger?) with a nicely balanced finish. An excellent Saison. Try it with a fresh pear and nuts.

Bottle. Musty lemon, yeast, and barley malt aroma - very nice. Slightly hazy golden yellow with large head. Musty lightly sweet lemon and barley malt flavor. Very tasty - wish they’d make this a regular.

Slightly cloudy with a hay-colored hue, this ale has a frothy, white head. The aroma is somewhat spicy and peppery, with a touch of something sweet (citrus?) and a light funk. For me it could use a little. It of body, but compared to their ’farmhouse ale’ the spotted cow, this saison is amazing. It’s dry and somewhat spicy, highly effervescent, and really quite refreshing.
