COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A homage to traditional European beers brewed for quenching the thirst of farm workers of "Saisonaires." A unique Belgian Saison yeast is used to impart a mixture of spice, fruity and earthy notes along with a lip smacking palatability.

Aroma is estery with hints of solvent and fusel alcohols. Appears dark golden, perhaps closer to the yellow of an international lager. Tastes very fruity with slightest hint if bread in the finish. Starts unpleasantly thin, finishes unpleasantly warm and syrupy. The alcohol is well masked though the presence of fuels is a cloying reminder that this is supposed to be a "big" beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Slightly cloudy yellow with a white head. Aroma is Belgian yeast, hints of fruit, little spice. Taste is spicy, yeasty with a cleaning finish. So-so lacing.

Poured from a bottle, a hazy holden color. Aroma is yeast, fruit, lemon, good smell, and taste is similar. Sharp bite, but not thick and boozy. This is not quite the traditional saison, but it is good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wonderful fruit-forward saison-"style" beer, but definitely departs greatly from the style. Big fruit aroma and taste. Not much carbonation. Very smooth, and quite high in ABV -- 9.3 -- but is cloy. Some discernible Belgian yeast, but really we're talking fruit fruit and more fruit here. I like it! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

solidfunk (3605) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - FEB 13, 2013
A little light on the saison vibe. Pours golden clear. Aroma of booze and some florals though influence is light. Average carbonation, consistency. Taste alittle astringent. Sours after a few breaths. Tap at Coles during some 18 year old Mardi Gras party.

maxwelldeux (3466) - Everett, Washington, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy copper color with a moderate white head. Nose has a fair amount of citrus in it with a little bit of "farm" in the nose. Taste has some sour notes in there, which is nice. It’s an easy drink.
