COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Originating in the farmhouses of Wallonia in the French speaking region of Belgium, Saison (French, "season") was brewed for field workers during the harvest season. Red Rock is proud to present a modern version of this once endangered style of beer. Moderately hopped, this refreshing ale boasts a complex style of fruity aroma and flavor, some spiciness and a hint of tartness. 6.2% alcohol by volume Please refresh responsibly.

Lemony, spicy, earthy/dusty yeast aroma. Spritzy carbonation... Lots-o-head, which dissipates quickly. A lot of fruity flavor (tart lemon, and maybe some subtle pear or something?). Banana/bubblegum in finish/aftertaste. Nice pepper/coriander spiciness, and some earthy yeast flavor. A little sweeter than I generally like in a Saison--but I think it works OK in this one.

500 ml. bottle. Thanks Dallas! Pours a hazy gold with a large white head. Aroma of yeast, citrus, spice, and malt. Taste is lemons, yeast, malt, spice, and florals. Finishes dry and somewhat bitter. Nice.

pushkinwow (2006) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 19, 2013
Bottle. Pale hazy yellow with a generous white head that fades to a nice centimeter layer. Some lemon, grass, oddly bubblegum, some spice but very faint, also some creamy brie notes. Mild body and moderate carbonation, little dry, more lemon with grass, slightly sour with some bitterness, becomes quite dry and a little thin on the end.

Elwood (3168) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Serving: 500 ml. bottle via trade from Sledutah. It pours a light amber color with a large white head. The nose has light hay, spice, and floral notes. The flavor follows suit with a bit of pale malt and lemon. Light body with lots of softer carbonation. Pretty decent brew.

Thanks to Santa for this Utah release which was actually pretty solid. Sometimes I find breweries like this to be hit or miss. This one manages to land near the mark for the most part.

Aroma / Appearance - A bubbly geyser was the biggest flaw of this otherwise brilliant and bright base. The golden transparent liquid supports a soft white head. Lemon sherbet, hay, residual earthy hops, and dry musty earth form a passable nose for an Americanized saison.

Flavor / Palate - The mouthfeel is just as bubbly as the appearance suggests. Champagne, lemons, and Sprite are at once sweet and tart. The wet earthy finish does a good job of holding together the flavors to the end. This is not the greatest example of the style but there are worse ones on the market.

Citrus, must, touch of spice on the nose. Golden color, not much lacing after 1/2" head. Taste is crisp, nice slight fruit flavored citrus, touch of clove but very subtle.great sunny day beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Terminus (3241) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Bottle-purchased at the Murray location August 2012-pours hazy lite orange hue with a big frothy white head with tons of different bubble sizes. nose is wack-lots of spice, funk, phenols, lemons, bubblegum-sort of not what to expect from a saison however, its very pleasant and clean. love the phenols here, which i usually hate that kind of stuff. Flavors of lemons, lite funk/barnyard corriander-its almost like a Wit saison hybrid beer-bigger in body than a wit yet has alot of wit character. its very good and alot better than the other 4% beers from this brewery (ratings soon to come). easy drinking saison here with quite a bit of character. This could develop with a little time. nice beer!

Hazy golden color with lasting white sheen. Nice funky skunk cabbage, barnyard piss, pale wheat, dough, dry spice aromas. medium body. Lightly tart flavors of unripe pale pit fruits, lemon, dry hay, dry spices, and wheat bread. Drying bitter finish--good
