COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
starting with a base of German wheat & pale malts this crisp slightly hazy foundation was then accented with a blend of Sterling & Citra hops providing a intricate blend of herbal grass & tangerine citrus flavors and aroma. to pull this all together and to complete the ’cleansing’ aspect of my vision i gently finished the ale off with a touch of white sage, lending a mild earthy spice character to the blend. of course let’s not forget our house saison yeast that brought all the elements together leaving a dry yet intricate finish.

Benzai (12760) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 19, 2011
Color is golden, little bit cloudy. Smell and taste not really good, think I tasted orange peel. Too much carbonation.

mile (3771) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 19, 2011
Bottle. Golden, cloudy, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty – wheaty and sweetish aroma, some citrus fruitiness and lots of herbal spiciness. Body is medium, malty – wheaty and lightly sweetish flavor, some citrus and lots of herbal spiciness, yeast and some fruitiness. Finish is average, malty – wheaty and dryish, citrus and sharp spiciness. OK but too much sharp spiciness and wheat for me.

lusikka (7680) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 18, 2011
750 ml bottle.
Pours a dark, hazy orange colour with a large, frothy, white head. Aroma of strong citrus, spices and some earthy notes. Flavour of citrusy hops, sweet fruits such as apricot, spices and some floral notes. Medium bodied with a foamy mouthfeel and quite rough carbonation. Nice saison with too much carbonation.

lefossoyeur (574) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 13, 2011
Golden with a nice white head. Intersting herbal nose, light to medium body, nice bitterness, the sage character is a little too intense for me but it’s not bad. Again, a little on the sweet side for a saison...

Beerman6686 (6172) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2011
This poured a cloudy darker yellow color with a white head. Aroma was lots of yeast and spices, somewhat musty too. Flavor was very lightly tart, dry, and spicey, mainly lemon and coriander.

cleverlobo (319) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 11, 2011
Bottle; cloudy golden with very large white head; aroma-grass, citrus, sage, earthy-very unusual but pleasant; taste-mild sweetness, moderate bitterness, sage coming through strongly again.

Butters (4038) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 10, 2011
Pours a semi hazy gold with massive big white head. Big sage nose, clean and citrusy. Flavor is very similar. Sweeter than I had thought it would be. Very bubbly and champagne like. Good for what it is, but I don’t particularly care for it.

DialSquare (4203) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 10, 2011
Bottle from Liquor Loft. Murky yellow pour with white head and visible carbonation. Nice buttery, wheat and sage spice aroma. Light lemon and wheat taste with yeast, orange peel and perfume. Not always a big saison fan - but this is an interesting little sipper.

abemorsten (3504) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - JUN 9, 2011
Sampler at CBF 2011-05-27. Murky yellow with a white, creamy film. Spicy, cardamum, perfume aroma. Sweet, heavy bitter, acidic flavors with spicy notes. Prickling tongue. Full body. Grows in the mouth. Dry finish. Suspect bacterial infection from the acidic presence.
