COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Summertime is for love, laughter and play, not envy. Never mind those luscious, long climbing vines of spicy, herbal hop cones over there. Sure there is a time for IPA, but today we will be content with smooth and floral Saison. Be happy.

Brewed with Belgian aromatic malts, wheat and noble hops.

Serve in a goblet or snifter at 45°F for optimal enjoyment.

oured from a 22oz. bottle into a Harpoon limited edition tulip glass. The color is golden orange with two fingers of foamy white head and some nice lacing left on the glass. The smell is malty with a great Belgian-like yeast aroma in the nose. There is a sweetness to the aroma that has a earthy character. The taste is grassy and has a hop presence that was unexpected. There is a mix of mild hops and sweet Belgian malts that has a light tickle of flavor that kicks with a slight bitterness toward the end. The feel of this beer is smooth with a lighter to mild body. There is a great softness to this beer that has a subtle thump of bitterness that also springs a nice sweetness that softens any bitterness from weighting on your palate.

22 ounce bottle. Thanks James! Pours a hazy pale gold with a nice white head. Aroma of fruit, yeast, and floral. Taste is yeast, tropical fruit, floral, grain, and spice. Nice.

Poured at tasting. Cloudy golden color. Aroma is like standing in a flower shop. Interesting and fresh, grassy wild, like a wiff of spring. The wheat and yeast come out in the taste. Light and crisp palate. I did not think I would like this but I did. Also the price point is good, enjoyed.

dmac (4080) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 23, 2014
22oz bomber from Wine Academy. Poured a super hazy honey amber body with a large fluffy white head that lasts and lasts. Aroma of honey topped bread, flower petals, sugar, Belgian yeast, tropical fruits, touch of earth and brown bread. Body starts medium but becomes rather full as soon as it passes your lips, carbonation is average and the aftertaste fades quick. Flavor is grains and toast to start, lighter sweetness than the flavor, some old dry honey and flowers, tropical fruits rinds and a hint of apple, sugar. Meh it’s okay but I have had other Slum Brews better.

mansquito (3444) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Total Wine, Fairfax 650ml: Pours light orange with a white head. Aroma is lightly hopped, somewhat funky, a bit spicy, and some floral bits in there as well. Taste is somewhat hoppy. Funky and kind of dry. Pretty well-balanced. Refreshing and tasty.

ben4321 (4015) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 12/13/13

Aroma: The nose is yeast and spice, some floral hops, and a bit of fruit
Appearance: It pours a hazy orange color with a frothy off-white head and medium-plus lace
Flavor: The taste is much the same, a decent mix of spice, sweetness, and bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, with an overly fizzy carbonation, and a dry finish
Overall Impression: This is a decent but not great saison. There’s some flaws in the mouthfeel, including the over carbonation, that limit the drinkability a bit. Otherwise, it is solid, it just doesn’t stand out in the other areas. Okay...

Tap. Pours cloudy orange gold with a white head that laces the glass. Scent is yeast, lemon and a bit if spice. Taste citrus hop, a little pepper and some funk. Finish peppery and dry.

blipp (6148) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - SEP 19, 2013
Bottle. Pours hazy golden orange with a white head. Yeasty, light spicy notes, some flowery and herbal notes, and some medium pitty peachy fruity sweetness. Pretty good.

swoopjones (5980) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 6, 2013
Bottle. Somewhat cloudy Orange pour. Aroma has a bit of jolly pumpkin like funkiness, citrus pith, fruit juice, tropical notes. JP funkiness in flavor, fruity, nice flavor. Way too carbonated. Fizzy. Solid flavor but mouthfeel sets beer back a bit
