COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The radiant energy of the sun gives life to all that we enjoy. Flowing field of barley for malting, surging vines of ripening hops and even pure, clean water owe their vitality to the sun. Just as we do. So in crafting this unique, hazy orange-hued ale, we poured in nature’s great gifts of German malts and European hops to feed the dynamic yeast that we imported from Belgium. Here in the quiet tanks of Victory our yeast brought vitality to this Belgian style farmhouse ale. That energy has created impressions that range from lemon peel to black pepper, though such spices are not added. Great with a wide array of foods, count on the bright soul of Helios Ale to bring life to all of your meals!

Pours golden with a bit of haze. Big white head. Smells citrusy. Lemon and orange up front. Tastes- Mainly citrusy. Lemon and orange. A little but of spice but less than most saisons I have had. Mouthfeel-Crisp and carbonated. Overall- A very nice beer. I like a little more balance between spice and citrus in saisons whereas this beer seems pretty tilted towards the citrus but still a pretty enjoyable beer and at a great price.

Flaska från Systembolaget delad med @msbrindbergs. Dimmig guldfärgad vätska med vitt skum. Doftar jästigt med en frukig ton. Jästig smak... Inte min grej.

DocJitsu (1022) - Florida, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Pours a cloudy classic golden color with a gigantic off white head, in spite of a gentle pour. Earthy and citrusy nose. Full-bodied and smooth. Flavors approximate the nose. A nice drinking saison, but nothing remarkable.
