COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Patio season." Two of the finest word ever to lay upon Chicago ears. Named for the sun we so long for, our new saison celebrates the opportunity to squeeze the summer out of this city. Loaded with Amarillo hops, fresh squeezed citrus juice, and fresh citrus zest, this saison screams summer. Tan those broad shoulders people, youíve earned it.

BBB63 (6474) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 7, 2013
750ml bottle and served in my PW snifter: Pours a cloudy golden hue with an frothy initial head and spotty lace. The aroma is blood oranges, orange zest, tangerines, mango, herbal and resiny hops, white wheat, pils malt and a bit of clove action. The taste is highly fruity, loaded with citric notes with a light bitterness and wheat husk overtone. If this beer was a tad toned down in both alcohol and husky mouth feel it would be a great summer refresher. That said I am still digging this brew, after North and Western I would say my second favorite PW Saison (tied with Pipeworks Poivre Noir and ahead of the other two Poivre brews). Ya did the orange right in this one guys, keep it up!

jercraigs (8666) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2015
2015-08-14. Hazy dark pastel yellow body with a small white head. 3+ Aroma is yeasty, sort of lemony. 7+ Flavour is fairly yeasty, light farmhouse notes and lemon. Average bodied palate, moderate carbonation. Enjoyable, would likely fare better on itís own rather than in a crowd. Bottle at Campground Brewdown.

hopscotch (10142) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 5, 2015
Bottle... Pours cloudy and yellow with a mid-sized, white head. Good retention. Pink grapefruit, white pepper and yeasty bread mingle nicely in the aroma. Full-bodied with zippy carbonation. The flavor is malty, sweet and peppery with a surprisingly dry, tongue-numbing finish. Bottle courtesy of BBB63!

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate pine, orange peel, herbal notes, and citrus. It pours a cloudy dull yellow with a two finger white head that eventually fades to a minimal film outlined by a thicker ring. The flavor starts with moderate citrus/orange with a touch of yeast. The finish has more citrus, light herbal notes, and a touch of pepper. Itís light bodied with heavy carbonation that can be a bit prickly at times. Overall, if the carbonation was toned down, Iíd like it a lot more.

Reynolds314 (2881) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 28, 2014
Nice saison. Aroma is quite good with orange and grapefruit and a bit of grassy herbal hop on top of the saison funk. Taste is a slight letdown with an aspirin bitterness on top of bitter citrus peel and a light funky earthy finish. I liked it but had higher hopes after the aroma.

750ml bottle. Standard american farmhouse saison with nice dosage of Citrius which seems like its coming from both juice and hops. Slight peppery. Decent.
