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.

Thanks to iNBe. Sort of like a hefeweizen and a tripel had a baby and it had a little bit of the sour funk. Yeasty and highly carbonated with very fine bubbles. This is nice. Serving: Bottle

Tmoney99 (11094) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured hazy amber color with an average frothy off-white head that was lasting with good lacing. Moderate yeast, malt and spice aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium complex spice sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid complex drinkable beer.

timfoolery (1124) - California, USA - OCT 13, 2012
Bottle from trade. Aroma of Belgian yeast, slight banana, and even slighter lager funk. Flavor is some white pepper, banana, and light bittering hops. Always an excellent palate from Daniel Carey's brews, even though they have odd slants for some genres. Still, a very good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SpringsLicker (3170) - Tennessee, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Thanks to Steasy66 for the trade! Pours a clear dark yellow under one of those soapy heads that leaves nice lace. The aroma is a mix of fruit, herbs and lemon rind. The flavor is lightly sweet and fruity with a very soft herbal dryness in the finish. Lively and spritzy.

Bottle thanks to phaleslu, NOT failslu. Thanks! Aroma of toasted toasted dough, wet grass, herbs. Taste is soft bitter herbal grass, rustic dough. High carbonation. More doughy than expected, but works. Nice beer.

MacDouglass (88) - Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Aroma: alcohol, maybe some banana, barley, actually somewhat muted; Appearance: a ever so slightly hazy golden, bordering on orange, after the pour, the slightest ring of carbonation settles on the edges by the glass, good bubble action after the pour; Taste: some clove, some banana cream, something doughy, some citrus rind, quite complex, extremely tasty; Palate: something sweet lingers, decent bitter that lingers, good nose feel in the carbonation; Overall: I really like this beer, I canít say exactly why, but Iím guessing its mostly because it tastes awesome and without any one flavor/aspect dominating, Iím not an expert taster by any means, but I swear that this beer is one of the more complex Iíve had in a while, Iíd definately recommend it
