Six pack enjoyed with Chipalsa. Nose is light lemon, some spice, yeast, grass. Flavor is dry, with lemongrass, light citrus, a touch of spicy yeast, and some light bread. Good on a saturday night chillin.

This is a very tasty seasonal saison. I really enjoy the lower alcohol of this one. Clean, bright, hoppy. Very good American saison from a great brewery.

Bottle from BOTW. Clear pale golden, fine head. Lemony nose, spicy yeast, light grains and hay. Clean. Clean and citrusy, spicy yeast, crisp, light bready malts. Decent beer, not a whole lot of saison character, but high drinkability. Relatively high carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle at Bigelos. Almost clear golden with a smallish off white head. Do I smell a bit of parmesan? Grain and earth, too. Flavor is citrus that has a little bite to it. That grain and soft yeast. Earth is there but is light. The malts are also too soft. A little spiciness cones late. I love the low ABV here but wish the flavor was more robust. It is a trade off, I know.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light golden ale ....somewhat cloudy. Has a bitter scent with slight sweet hints. Taste is rather bitter although it comes off the palate rather nicely. Palate also reveals spices....I notice what appears to be nutmeg. I'd probably get this again although only a couple of bottles.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had this one poured out of the bottle. Light spicy notes in the aroma and a head that dissipates quickly. The flavor is mild compared to most saisons, but that combined with the moderate ABV definitely allows for it to live up to its name as a session beer. Extremely refreshing and easy to drink. I believe that accomplished what they were trying to do with this beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Global Brew. This is just what the name implies: a sessionable Begian Saison. Pours a bright yellow with a thin but retentive white head. Fruit and spice aroma. Taste is everything you like in a Belgian ale but w/o the sometimes cloying sweetness and higher ABV. This exhibits sweet pale malt, a fresh fruitiness, some grassiness and a bit of pepper, coriander and other spices. Clean and crisp; goes down easy. Good effort.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer does not have the usual saison beer. Light gold in color with a fizzy palate and a slightly bitter long finish. Not as rich in sweet notes as most saisons I’ve had.
