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.

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

Sanitas saison paired with a ceviche at BruFrou fest. Clear gold classic saison funk the taste is ascerbic wheat and a bit of spicy funk. Nice enough.

Way too sweet for a saison. Lacks the crispness and mild funk of the best versions of the style. Gift from Brian for Christmas, 2015.

Can from Whole Foods Wine and Spirits in Boulder, 11/22/15. Pours a mostly clear yellowish color. Looks almost like apple juice. Additionally, it has a white head and drippy lace. Citrus and yeast flavor and aroma. Good bit of spice. Some straw and a bit of an apple type fruitiness come through too. Light bodied with an okay mouthfeel overall. Seems a little off style for a Saison. Okay beer overall.

Strykzone (6272) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 25, 2015
Sampled at gabf. Very clear gold. Loks like a Pils. Not sure what this us but it is unfortunate. Not a saison. Not a good beer.

Aubrey (3508) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Crisp up front, but it quickly thickens, and it even becomes kind of cloying in the finish. This is a very malt-forward saison with notes of honey, cereal and sweet grains. Yeast esters and hops are meadowy, floral and earthy. White-pepper bitterness. Nice lemongrass element in the aftertaste.

onceblind (6740) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 3, 2014
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.

ajnepple (4826) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 8, 2014
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!
