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.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. Big spicy/ fruity yeast nose. The flavor is spicy yeast and hops, sweet grains, fruity, yeasty. This is a solid saison. Very well crafted.

Bottle to snifter (thanks alexsdad06). Looks good; a semi-transparent orange with white lacing. Smells solid; tropical citrus with white pepper notes. Tastes the same with a nice mouthfeel. Good.

Had this one bottled thanks to Wyl! Saisons are just not my style, and this was not much different.

12 ounce bottle
Picked up while in Madison this is another fine entry in the Unplugged/Thumbprint series. While it is not the best there are certainly less inspiring releases. Buy a four pack so you can drink one now and still have three left to enjoy in the years to come.

Aroma / Appearance - The carbonated base sparkles with a semi-transparent presence that glows. Little head remains once it settles down. Straw, freshly cut hay tramped in the field, and oranges warm the senses. Smelling like a barnyard after a light rain it has a simple but elegant nose.

Flavor / Palate - Straw and hay soften the senses almost immediately. Damp muddy boots carry into a orange citrus finish. A fine mixture of Belgian and American influences this is worth drinking again and again until it finally can’t be found.

JStax (3346) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Poured from a refrigerated bottle received from weihenheizen. Thanks! Pours a pale yellow with a nice froth of white foam. The aroma is grassy and floral with a mellow sweetness kind of lingering in the background. It has an almost earthy undertone to it. Taste is quite well balanced sweetness and earthy bitterness. I wouldnt mind having this beer again.

adnielsen (9619) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Bottle @ Brad’s house Minneapolis picked up at Historic Casanova’s. Pours a bit cloudy, golden orange appearance with an off white head. Lemon peel, zesty spicy, a bit peppery, barnyard, straw, carbonated aroma. Pretty dry, lemon/tangerine citrusy, a touch funky, barnyard, hay, white pepper, a bit zesty flavor. Easy to drink and pretty tasty.

Bottle. Thanks to adnielsen for sharing. Pours a hazy golden color with white head. Grainy, honey, citrus flavor with a dry, lingering finish. Very nice saison.

Some citrus and a little sour funk. Pours an amber like golden color with not much head. Taste is a big time citrus, with a very nice lemon tart sour like flavor. Just started to enjoy sours and saisons. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
