COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sanitas Saison represents all that makes beer great. Inspired by age-old tradition, brewed with premium ingredients, and shared among friends over great food and celebration, this fascinating ale is our pride and joy. Its fruity, grassy flavor from a blend of hops and a rustic farmhouse yeast surprises drinkers with complex approachability and a dry finish.

Clear brilliant bright yellow with a thin foamy ring of head. Nice estery nose of Pilsner malt and corn chips and a wee bit of spicy dough. Spicy and estery flavor full of rye and pepper with some sweet sugary wheat/hay and a nice earthy and subdued bitterness.

Sampled at GABF. Gold with a small white head. Straw, hay, floral notes, yeast, light peppery spices and herbal hops. Something just seemed off.

can from hazelís beverage world. Pours golden with a thin white head. leaves some lacing in the glass. not getting much on the nose. has a bit of barnyard on the tongue. Itíís not very strong and Iíve certainly had better saisons but I donít think this is one of the worst of the style.

I really enjoy this beer. I find it easy drinking and a sessionable beer. Goes really well out of a can poured into a nice long glass. Kind of beer I would enjoy as an everyday beer but not a special one i would pay over the odds for. Wife also enjoys this one - she is not a big beer drinker but has been able to enjoy this as have others i have shared it with. I have imported these beers into Australia for resale front he brewery - just declaring my interest upfront!

Draught at Sanitas brewing. Golden color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, earthy notes, peach and hops. Bitter finish with citrus, earthy notes and grass. Fairly nice saison.

Can from Rob - thanks! Slightly hazy yellow-orange pour with a small white ring head. Slight yeast and citrus. A touch tart on the tongue with a somewhat lively palate. Getting some apple juice.

The reviews on this beer are hilariously everywhere. The "detergent" description should sound crazy, but I kind of get it. But paired with the citrus tones and peppery finish, it's not at all unpleasant. I respect the reviewer before me who called it "piss water", yet still gave it a 2.9. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ernest (6352) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 19, 2013
Can. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, corn starch), trace hops (herbs), lightly yeasty (sweatsocks), with light notes of banana/gum, lemon taffy, DMS, rubber, insecticide. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Light body, watery texture, lively carbonation. An amazingly bland rendition. Imagine blending a light Belgian blond ale 50/50 with water...no exaggeration. I mean, I realize saisons were originally a safe alternative to water and all, but...wow...it doesnít mean the beer canít be interesting and enjoyable (see Dupont Avril for a much lower ABV example thatís still jumping with character). It starts off with nary a head whatsoever, even when poured from a height...crystal clear as well. So, thereís nothing remotely Belgian about the appearance, it honestly looks like Coors and that ilk. I canít imagine thatís what they wanted. Beyond the near lack of an aroma, there are some off notes as well...some cooked veggie and rubber/plastic, dirty yeast, and maybe even some fusels...so not only is there not much to entice you, there are some things to repel. Incredibly light and watery mouthfeel completes the picture. All in all an impossible beer to like. I strongly suspect the 3.8+ ratings here are from friends of the brewers, or were otherwise bribed in some way to give a good rating...there is just nothing in this beer to enjoy (and I love light, delicate beers more than most). Sure hope this company makes some changes, for their sake.
