Samuel Adams Rustic Saison is an incredibly complex yet refreshing beer in the classic style of Belgian farmhouse ales. These blonde ales were traditionally brewed to quench the thirst of farmers throughout the summer months. The unique character of our brew comes from its Belgian yeast that imparts floral, fruity, and spicy flavors. These are layered with a slight earthiness and a citrusy, herbal hop character for a bright and satisfying summer brew.

Pours a clear amber color with a medium white head. The aroma is floral hops and also some sweet breadiness and malts. The taste is the same but also i pick up the lemon and other spices.

"pretty nice flavors and aroma for such a light, sessionable ale. floral aroma with some citrus, honey, and spice (clove-like) and a similar flavor, with a touch of other light fruit as well. Not much aftertaste, but a pretty good summer brew."

Maybe the least remarkable Saison there is. This is what happens when a large brewer tries to make something for the masses that isn’t very easy to make. A dumbed down version of a style that combines elegance and effervescence when completed well, i.e. Dupont and Hill Farmstead

(Backlog) Clear, orange peachy colored, with an ok off white head. The smell is perfume, light florals, lavender, and some wheat. Weaker in smell and taste than expected. The taste is rather bland for a saison, somewhat like a weak floral malt tea. Easy to dri

July 2011. Bottle. Middle of the road saison. Not good, not bad. Very drinkable and refreshing. Affordable if you just want to try the style.
