COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Glimmerglass - The name given to our lake by James Fenimore Cooper - is a beautiful body. Nested between gentle mountains, it reflects any object held up to it, just as it reflects our joy at the arrival of each spring. To help celebrate, pour new spring saison offers a perfect balance of maltiness and hops, with a touch of yeasty fruitiness and a whiff of pepper.

fishonmyplane (440) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - APR 2, 2014
Peppery with tons of yeast, some light lemon zest and pretty good malt/hop balance. Full-bodied, but the low ABV for the style helps keep it refreshing.

JHeath99 (951) - Warner Robins, Georgia, USA - SEP 15, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a thick layer of cream colored head. Aroma is big time yeast with some spices. In the taste the spices are more forward and balanced with the yeast.

Strykzone (4933) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Draft at Ciceros. Quite hazy golden. The aroma is pretty much classic saison with that yeast and malts. This seemed to be dry hopped with a clean dry bitterness. A really nice version of the style with definite American aspects coming through.

BillWyce (723) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Pours hazy straw color with a 1-finger white head. Mild aroma, with notes of citrus and earthy yeast. A light peppery note underneath. Body is light and slightly fizzy, with a dry finish. Flavor of citrus peel, with a nice earthy base from the yeast. A touch of pepper at the back lingers in the finish.

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2014 16 oz draft pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of malts, spice and yeast. Taste is spice and yeast.

magsinva (878) - Virginia, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Bottle from Liqour Xpress - pours clear gold with a ton of white head. Aroma is fruity grass, with yeasty undertones. Yummy, but not exciting.

glennmastrange (2255) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Bottle. Moderate malt aroma of hay, heavy herbs for the hops, moderate barnyard and dried leaves for the yeast, with pepper and a hint of vinegar in the background. Head is huge, fizzy turning rocky, white with excellent lacing and is fully lasting. Color is sparkling clear light gold. Flavor starts faintly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately acidic and lightly bitter. Palate is light, between dry and watery with a fizzy carbonation. A lot bolder aroma than I expected, and this Saison is more flavorful and refreshing than others I’ve had.

blackflag321 (482) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle took several minutes to pour to shaker; Big, big frothy head. Heavy bubbling from carbonation. Light straw color. Smooth, simple palate. Pepper adds just enough spice to temper the banana. Mild yeasty fruit.

3.5
   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 10/20
Beerenberger (1447) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Subdued banyard and yeast greet the nose while the eyes feast on a cloudy pale yellow pour with a non-lasting white head and no lacing. Bananna, citrus, and hints of barnyard funkand wheat grace the palate. Light body and crisp carbonation with a crisp dry finish. Overall, an ok Saison. I know I will enjoy the three remaining bottles.
