COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In Belgium, Saison refers to the Season, and brewers there will create brews to match a given season. Triumph Saison is designed as a light, effervescent beer with a hint of fruit and coriander. Similar to a Belgian Wit or "white" beer, our Saison is a smooth and refreshing summer concoction.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 14, 2007
Hand-bottle courtesy of Dickinsonbeer, sampled in November of 2006: Pours a hazy copper with a wispy-lacing off-white head. Complex earthy floral peppery spiced aroma has a good sweet biscuity malty presence. Body starts sweet and full with a floral hop flavor and bitter earthy balance with lots of bready yeast. True to style and enjoyable.

Glouglouburp (5992) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 4, 2011
In short: A semi-barnyard and semi-dry fruity Saison. Slighlty below average for the style
How: Growler shared during the RBSG 2011 bus-trip
The look: Cloudy golden body topped by a small off-white head with medium retention
In long: Nose is moderately barnyard with also standard belgian blonde ale yeast fruity esters. Taste is fresh cereals, some hay, cobweb, flowery spiciness, some tropical fruits, dough. Creamy mouthfeel. Not really dry, not really sweet, just very plain cereals. I love Saisons and tend to overrate them but this one didn’t excite me. It was just ok as a Saison. But although this particular beer wasn’t all that good, the RBSG bus trip itself was quite extreme and we drank a ton of beer. But let me assure you that there was nothing inappropriate about my behavior during that bus trip. It is my age that was very inappropriate for my behavior.

Growler on the RBSG bus trip. Pours gold with an off white head. Spicy yeasty aroma with light floral notes. The flavor has spicy yeast, lightly sweet malt, and floral hops. Pretty good.

Poured a hazy golden color with a medium sized white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of yeast, citrus, orange peel, and coriander. Taste of citrus, lemon, more orange peel and coriander, and a touch of alcohol in the finish.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 16, 2006
New Hope. Pours a slightly hazy deep golden with a medium white head. Aroma is spicy, phenolic, coriander, light citrus and orange peel but not exaclty what I would expect in a saison. Flavor is lightly fruity and sweet iwth a moderate carbonation. Some light spice throughout, but nothing too funky about it. Seems like maybe they didnt use the traditional saison yeast strain?
