COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
La Petite Saison is a beautifully crafted beer brewed in the Belgian farmhouse style. The award-winning ale relies on Pilsener malt and white wheat, gently flattered with German Perle, Czech Saaz and American Willamette hops which add subtle, yet intricate flavoring to the beer. The Belgian yeast headlines the show, lacing palates with the delicate, floral esters for which the style is known. LPS is a smooth sipper with a crisp finish, and at 5.3% ABV skirts the upper range of session territory.

The yeasty notes in this saison make it a natural pairing for a variety of breads, cheeses and salads and it makes for a great backyard barbeque or watching the sun set over the Rocky Mountains.

First released in 2010 as Le Petit Saison, it was reintroduced in 2012 as a summer seasonal under the name La Petite Saison.

mensch (280) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Hazy yellow pour, with a rocky white head. Enticing yeasty lemon aroma. Light and spritzy on the tongue. Easy drinking summer ale. Lemon drop candy and a little belgian fukiness. Long fruity and dry finish. I could sip a few of these after mowing the lawn. It wouldn’t stand up to any food match stronger than an undressed salad or a sorbet. But still, a lot of flavor for such a low ABV.

[Bottle (12oz)] Pours a cloudy yellow/light gold with a huge rocky white head. Minimal lacing. Nice aroma, fruity, grainy and yeasty along with light grassy hops, herbs and a touch of sweetness. Flavour follows and is refreshing and easy to drink. Average to medium bodied. Really good stuff.

Sitting by the pool in the deep sizzle of the Florida sun dreaming of hot weather beer & was happy to find this waiting for me on the ice. Cloudy lemon in the glass with a classic champagne style top. Lemon peel zest, slight cracked pepper, hint of orange. Really enjoying this.

jrodooo5 (1276) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Nice character for a saison! Kind of a sweet aroma w/ the spices softly carrying through. The pour is transparent gold w/ a thin white head & some lacing. The taste is quite spicy w/ a tad bit of dryness in the finish. Not too shabby!

beastmaster (367) - Florida, USA - NOV 3, 2014
Hazy pour at twisted pine. Solid saison. Fuller saison. Medium body well carbed. Funky. Simple. Wheat, yeast, hay, and funk

Doofgoblin (440) - Chevy Chase, Washington DC, USA - OCT 29, 2014
Sort of average.Aroma is of fresh dough, banana, and very faint lemon/spice. The taste is somewhat lemony with a bit of spice and yeast. Finish is clean and sweet. Appearance is a typical yellow with little flecks of something floating about. Overall, it’s fine just forgettable.

ajnepple (3553) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - OCT 26, 2014
On tap at Brooks Place, served in a tulip. Orange hazy appearance with an off-white head and sticky lacing. Aroma of light Belgian yeast, herbs, spicy hops, bready malts, floral notes, toasted grains and light fruity zest. Similar flavor, crisp with mild bitterness and light sweetness. Average body with a semi-dry finish. Pretty tasty and refreshing for $3.

JDBaker11058 (1561) - Maryland, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Appearance: very light yellow, with a bold, bright white, bubbly, foamy, fluffy head and significant, persistent lacing. Aroma: typical saison aroma, with some funk, a bit of pineapple and graham cracker, maybe some mango. Taste: lime, honey nut cheerios, green grapes, lemongrass, light funk, hint of sea salt. Finish: slightly dry, with a bit of herbal bitterness to balance the funk. Notes: Certainly not the best saison I’ve had, but absolutely respectable. Bottle from Buddy’s (drive through!) Beer Barn in El Paso, Texas.

Poured into a glass, golden color, minimal white head, lively effervescence, nice floral aroma, soft hints of spice, a good beer.
