COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Saison" is French for season, referring to an ale that is traditionally brewed in farmhouses in southern Belgium for the late summer harvest. Our La Grange is a sturdy farmhouse ale that is very complex, with a myriad of esters ranging in fruit-like aromas to earthy yeast tones. It is dry and refreshing, perfect for your late summer thirst. What we brew in the soil of contemplation, we shall reap in the brewing harvest. We must give in order to get more. It’s in the generous giving of malts and hops that produces this bountiful yield.

Pours a medium, tiny bubbled, well retained, white head, Belgian lacing,over a clear, light gold (SRM 4) effervescent body......nose is light citrus, lemon, orange, with light clove tones, cereal, minimal hops.....taste is slightly floral sweet to start, with citrus note including lemon, orange, light cereal malts, becoming dry, ending with light pepper, light hops bitterness, balanced....mouth feel, medium body, light alcohol warmth, high carbonation, moderate acidity. This is nice rendition of the style. The spices are not as large as many, but it is nicely balanced, refreshing and pleasantly complex. The acidity is a bit low and the alcohol is a bit high.

On cask. Pours a hazy golden color. Notes of clover, lemons, spice, earth, and citrus. The cask makes it slightly sour and less carbonated which is great.

ChainGangGuy (4423) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Appearance: Hazed, light yellow body, a few floaties in there from pulling on the lees. Tall, lasting, white head.

Smell: Soft aroma of flowers, light dusting of spice. Modest, restrained maltiness. Thin vein of fruity chewing gum. Mild nose, but, the long-lasting, pile of foam on top could be hampering this deal.

Taste: Pils and crisp, lightly grainy pale malted barley. Slender sweetness as it’s fastly drying. Spicy phenols, light herbal hints. Lemony accents trailed by orchard fruits. Hint of gum. A bit of bitterness creeping in. Well-carbonated, dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Just squeaks past medium-bodied. Medium-plus, foaming carbonation.

Overall: Above-average; a nice, competent farmhouse ale.

Not going to knock a lot of imports off the shelves, but very admirable beer with nice complexity and what I perhaps enjoyed most was the dryness rather than cloying sweetness found in too many attempts at "Belgian" style> Purty darn good>

ben4321 (4114) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 1, 2013
Location: 22 oz bottle from Central Market, 10/1/13

Aroma: The nose is yeasty and a little funky, pepper/spice, and some fruity notes as well
Appearance: It pours an unclear orange color with a thin white head and light lace
Flavor: The taste is lightly sweet, mostly yeasty and spicy, with some earthiness as well
Palate: The body is medium, it has a tingly feel, and a clean, dry finish on the mouth
Overall Impression: Thought this one was a fairly impressive example of the style. The spice and yeast dominate, but there’s some other stuff going on here too. It lives up to the promises of the description.
