Glowing orange out of the pint can, with a short lived white head that settled into a thin whisp. Big nose with orange zest, apricot, spices and fresh yeast. Bright orange peel flavors with sharp spices. The apricot is stronger than the peach, and the whole thing is held together by the yeast until it warms, when it gets a little messy. If you like your saisons spicey with a big splash of orange and apricot, this is your can of beer.

Iím developing a fondness for beer-in-a-can for some reason. These surley guys make some decent beer. This one is interesting, to say the least. I expected a lot more sweetness in the flavor based on the aroma of honey, heather, flowers and a gentle spiciness. The flavor was much more spicy and even dry - must be from the black pepper. It tastes stronger in alcohol than it actually is - must be some of those spices burning! Interesting and good. I would like to try this one from draught, since my biggest complaint is that it just doesnít have a good freshness quality about it, and tastes a bit stale.

Thanks to beerlando for this - a saison in a can...nice! - slightly hazy golden pour, with a light copper tint - frothy, lasting head - aroma of bitter orange peel and peaches, along with some soft honey and lavender notes, light herbs - fairly assertive hops up front, that couple with some apricot and orange pulp - a moderate malt profile rises up from underneath that, and the oats actually become pretty apparent, which is odd, but it works - yeasty flavors, light white pepper spice, some coriander, and light belgian fruitiness linger in the finish, which is long and dry - this is a well-made saison.

Can from Caponeís in a glass. Poured Hazy with a large white head. Great spicy, yeasty, saison aroma. A bit fruity, yet hopped a little more then a typical saison which was very nice. By far the best Saison I have ever had out of a can. :)

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2007
Can. A golden beer with a off-white head. The aroma is of caramel malt, yeast, fruits and hops. The taste is sweet caramel malt, pine, hops and fruits. Medium body with a dry light cookie finish.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 10, 2007
Can from Caponeís. Deep yellowish/gold pour with 2-finger white head. This one looks great. The aroma is bready malt, spicy florals, Saaz hops, cobwebby yeast, candi sugar. Tastes hoppy, crisp, dry, floral, yeasty, with pale malt evident late, as are black peppery notes and more florals. Nice complexity, and this one stays bone dry with a great floral, spicy, and citrus fruity intermingling. Iím amazed at what Surly has done with canned beer.

My first canned Saison, thanks to <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/ViewUser.asp?UserID=4 The bodyís golden and itís capped with a sustained fizzy head. Nice fruity aroma with peaches and other stoned fruit, sweet cirtus scents, and a peppery spiciness. Smooth. The flavor continues with fruity tastes and adds a drop of honey, more black pepper, and a citrus rind bitterness that lasts well into the mildly dry finish. Nice.

U.S.A. Rating #2300 out of 3676.
