COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional farmhouse ale made with a very expressive yeast strain that contributes an array of tropical fruit, spice flavors and aromatics. Brewed with a variety of harvest grains including barley, wheat, oats and rye as was likely the case with farmhouse brewers of yore. The result is a complex, refreshing and distinctive example of this esoteric style. Intensely fruity (passion fruit, pineapple, mango, lychee), slightly spicy (clove, white pepper)

Reminds me of Christmas, probably due to the spruce taste it has. Such a taste masked the slight bitterness and any other flavorings. Enjoyable nonetheless.

I had it from the bottle. The taste is citrus, other fruit, grassy, yeast, and some hops. The sweetness balances nicely with the subtle bitterness. It was refreshing. This is a nice spring beer.

jgb9348 (5434) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 29, 2016
Clear orange-tinted golden coloured body with a thin, single centimetre tall white head. Aroma of dry oak, grass, hay, flowers, yeast, coriander seed and a touch of corn noticeable. Light-bodied; Sharp grassy and floral note up front with a mellow malt flavour with only some grass notes and a bit of very light hops. Aftertaste is relatively mild with some grass, herbs, hops and a faint bit of hay - not much going on here. Overall, a pretty subdued and very easy-to-drink saison with a nice, but very light profile - nice and simple to drink! I sampled this stubby twelve ounce bottle purchased from Beer Culture in New York (Midtown), New York on 27-November-2015 for US$3,00 sampled at home in Washington on 28-February-2016.

Bottle from a Lazy Dog Slightly hazy straw color with a smallish but short lived bubbly white head. Spicy yeast esters, light sweet bread faint earthy hops and a touch of funk. Light bits of citrus round this out. Pretty drinkable, not my favorite saison by any means but fairly well made.

puboflyons (2873) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 20, 2016
Bottle 02/03/2016. Slightly cloudy yellow pour under a modest white head. The aroma has a nice note of Belgian yeast, mild spice, a little tropical fruit, and toasted grainy malts. Light to medium body. The taste has a great toasted barley and grainy character to start with a tropical fruitiness that kicks in and a spicy bitterness to finish. It runs the gamut.

olio (8723) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2016
355 ml bottle @ Timo A. Bottled on 08.01.2015.
Pours pale clear golden color with a very small head. Fruity aroma, herbal with grassy tones, pineapple and mandarin. Flavor is quite sweet fruity flavor, pineapple and orange, peach and some herbal spiciness. Slightly tart palate, dry finish. Aftertaste is very short. The age doesn’t show in this that much, okay light Saison.
