COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Spring Saison is light blonde in color with a fresh hoppiness and a wild and rustic Brettanomyces character. Lighter in color and alcohol than our Saison Rue, yet equally complex in its own way. Perfect for warmer weather and Spring celebrations.

Pours a slight hazy gold with a white head. Head retention is good. Aroma of peaches, citrus, light spice and of course the sour tone. Taste of hop bitterness, grupa fruits, green grapes and light spice. Awesome on a hot day.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2712) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 5, 2015
Happy Easter~! Not too many Easter beers out there but I tracked one down: The Bruery Saison de Lente 6.5% A soft cloudy gold with a big soapy white head of foam. An aroma of orange blossoms, honey, soft spiciness and the lightest of funk. The taste is fruits, spice, earthy, honey, a metallic bitter brett quality & a dry finish. Quite an interesting easy drinking saison with a soft round mouthfeel.

dogfishho (645) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - APR 1, 2015
Extremely refreshing, crisp, clean, dry saison. Nothing particularly notable aside from the tendency to be a bit overcarbed. Still delish.

Bulk_Carrier (2504) - Temporarily, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2014
Bottle says 12/18/13, unsure if that is born on or best by, nonetheless this is good stuff! This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a nice hazy golden yellow to dim orange color with a two finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a good thirty seconds. There was barely any lacing anywhere on the glass. The smell had a nice sweet refreshing lemon, slightly grassy and leading into a slight dry earthy citrus. The taste was sweet and dry, a nice bitterness invades finely upon the surface of my tongue. There’s a nice bittersweet hoppy grapefruit aftertaste leading into a nice dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was good for the saison style and for me. Overall, I like this one alot and would definitely have again.

superspak (3125) - Michigan, USA - DEC 12, 2014
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 12/19/2013. Pours slightly hazy bright golden color with a 2-3 finger dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense foamy lacing clings around the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, white grape, peach, pineapple, pepper, cracker, bread, hay, straw, grass, musty funk, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/funky/spicy yeast, pale malt, and earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, peach, pineapple, white grape, pepper, cracker, bread, hay, straw, grass, musty funk, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Good amount of earthy yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, apple, peach, pineapple, white grape, pepper, cracker, bread, hay, straw, grass, musty funk, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity and balance of fruity/funky/spicy yeast, pale malt, and earthy hop flavors; with a great crisp malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent saison style. All around great balance and complexity of fruity/funky/spicy yeast, pale malt, and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Habanero (3003) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - NOV 11, 2014
Bottled. Pours slightly hazy, golden with a large, fluffy white head. Aroma of yeast, brett, citrus peach and spice. Slightly sweet flavor that ends up dry and with a hint of bitterness. Medium bodied, watery to oily texture and soft carbonation. A lovely crisp Saison indeed.
