COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s a lively jazz rhythm, a vigorous sway, a change of view or even a roll in the proverbial hay. Now it also means the welcome jolt of joy you’ll experience upon your first sip of this session saison. Bracing, but benign, this Belgian style ale enlivens any experience with a spicy, aromatic start, citrus snap and fresh finish. Swing into spring with taste!

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is a slightly hazy pale yellow with a big, fluffy white head. Silky & soft. Vibrant herbal aroma of German Thyme, Rosemary, and maybe Savory along with a lemon citrus note. The body is smooth and medium. The taste has a good pale malt quality to it along with those full flavored herbs, citrus, and yeasty bread. An all around fascinating beer.

Bottle. Pour is a cloudy gold with a medium head and intriguing aromas of orange and lemon zest, white pepper and a little hay. Flavor is similar but clean and refreshing. It has quite a bit if zingy citrus to it which makes it pretty interesting and just enough spice to give it a little bite. I liked this beer quite a bit, especially considering the low abv.

had in SYR, (comments day after)...verifies that I’m not big on saisons...definitely a lot of flavor from what I remember, but not in a good way...lots of spices that are too strong

12oz bottle from Binny’s. Pours hazy golden yellow with white head. Aromas of lemony citrus, light spices, and saison yeast. Flavors are on the lighter side with some light spices, bready malts, little yeast, and some citrus. Nice drinkable beer.

decaturstevo (5203) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUL 25, 2013
Yellow gold pour with fluffy white head and clinging lace. Aroma is clove and or coriander. Flavor is earthy spiciness tones of hay and some citrus zest. Light bodied with aggressive carbonation. A little light struck or something a tad off kept this from being really good.

Six pack from DeBucas. Pours out a light lemony color with a white frothy head. Light bubbly carbonation. Light citrus and yeasty aromas. Flavor is good. Very refreshing brew. Goes down easy. Clean, crisp finish. Highly under-rated.

Aroma is yeast, lemons, citrus, spices and a slightly out of place mustiness. The flavor is lemons, citrus, spices, thick/sticky and a tart/tangy finish.
