Tried this one at the brewery. It seems like most American brewers have a difficult time with Belgian styles, but this one turned out very very well. Bright orange hazey color with fizzy white head. Belgian yeast aroma with hints of sweet malts and citrus hops. Flavor starts with familiar banana/resinous yeatiness, then finishes with a clean hop bitterness. This is a very well crafted beer. Case in point: I love Belgians, but my friend hates them...and we both loved this beer.

Sweet grain malts, light caramel, some spices, cloves, esters. Slightly hazy brown, medium, creamy, beige head. Light sweet. More caramel, bread malts, Belgian yeast, spices, cloves, esters, soft carbonation. Quite a malty Saison, nice spices if you like cloves. Can at the brewery, Minneapolis.

Sample at WOBFest 2016. Some peppery spice nicely offset by soft fruit and honey flavor. Well balanced saison.

Wow they did a very good farmhouse here. Has that prickly, lively body with a hint of hay, bread and apples, finished semi dry with some candied apples and hops. Very smart.

Nuffield (4080) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 24, 2015
Solid, tasty saison with fruity notes and some spice popping through, too. The yeast effects are more restrained than I would like in a saison, but it’s still enjoyable. (on tap at Surly brewery)
