The Saison ales of Belgium inspire our special ale, Saison du Pelican. Saison is the French word for season, because these ales were traditionally brewed in autumn or winter. With a spicy, herbal aroma from the special Belgian yeast and Golding hops, and a snappy, refreshing finish, Saison du Pelican combines traditional flavors with excellent drinkability

750 ml. bottle. This one has a different label and calls itself Pelican Saison, but it seems to be the same beer. It pours a mostly clear golden yellow color with a large, fizzy white head that shrinks rather quickly. The aroma is medium fruity with apple, pear, grape with slightly lighter notes of bread, yeast and herbs. The flavor is fizzy with lots of herbs, apple, grape and pear. Light to medium acidity and a medium to strong earthy/peppery bitter finish. Highly carbonated and a touch watery with some hints of soap on the palate. Overall, decent enough but it doesn’t really "pop" for me.

2012 bottle. This brew pours a hazy pale orange color with a medium thick foamy white head that dissipates gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of fruit, yeast and hops. Medium-bodied with flavors of peppery yeast, grassy hops, fruit and malt. The finish is fruity with an herbal yeast aftertaste. Above average overall.

phaleslu (9415) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 9, 2013
750 ml bottle I ordered from Pelican a couple years ago. The year wasn’t marked on the bottle, unlike the others. 2010? 2011? One of those. Pours a semi-cloudy gold color with a big white head that dissipates into a lasting film. Aroma is dry, with floral notes, wood chips, citrus, and sweet and bready malts. Faint spice. Flavor is even drier, and hits all the same notes. Light-medium bodied, with high carbonation and a dry, floral mouthfeel. Good saison that may have been better fresher.

Deep orange-gold pour with a thick white head. The aroma is a little bit spicy with just a touch of light dustiness as well. There is a kiss of light pepper and a touch of soft herbal character. Lean-bodied, but could be leaner. Moussey carbonation that lends it a little bit of softness that I find quite appealing. It’s a pretty standard saison yeast, but it’s got some nice maltiness in here. A little bit of lingering spice, but it’s kept somewhat subtle. Lovely brew.
