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!

Pours a nice golden color, with a thick head that keeps its shape. Smells of flowers, spices, herbs and citrus. Taste starts off sweet then moves to a distinct floral and citrus flavor. Maybe a tiny bit of hoppiness in there too. Not bad, and very refreshing.

coolpop (1395) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - MAY 30, 2013
Bottle. Pours hazy straw with a large, quickly dissipating white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is orange and lemon zest, coriander and other spices, some earthy yeast. Flavor is all that -- stro gly spiced but balanced well with some moderate bitterness, wheat and mild maltiness. Light to medium body. Quite good.

Nate (3727) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Sampled at Pints for Pets. Light hoppy aroma, spicy with notes of citrus, sulfur, and fruity esters. Yeasty. Nice saison aroma profile. Pale straw clear with thin head. Medium body with vigorous carbonation. Starts with wheat and pilsener malt notes, light sulfur, citrus and herbs. Tasty saison that’s not too overwhelming. Not quite crisp but enjoyable. Done well for the style, with mild chalky bitter after.

jmcgavin12 (490) - Madison, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Pours light yellow with a bit of frothy head. Aromas of spic and malt with a bit of yeast but not too drastic. Taste is a combination of sweet malty hay with a bit of hoppy notes near the end. Overall a decent beer for the spring

12-oz. Pours a hazy bright medium gold with a dense and eggy platinum blond head. Nice chamomile and white pepper nose, right where you want it, though the aromatics fade way too quickly. For those first couple sniffs and first couple drinks, though, wow, the white pepper and super intense dryness really make you feel like you’ve stumbled into something great somehow. Wish that effect held up over the life of the glass, but at least that moment of promise did flash by. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Bits of egg yolk, chamomile, and white pepper on the mid palate, but very subdued. Restrained finish. Not bad. Possibly great. Ends up in the middle, but, sadly, not close enough to great.

Tan, low foam head. Small hint of bitterness but smooth overall. Good beer with hot spicy food ---Mike F.

DialSquare (2657) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 27, 2013
12oz bottle from Publix. Yellow pour with huge pillowy bright white head. Aroma is perfume, spices, floral, lemon. Tastes are coriander, pepper, yeast, grass, straw. Fizzy creamy texture. Ok.

icehawk (834) - Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - MAY 27, 2013
Pours a slightly cloudy light yellow with a foamy white head. Lemon, spice, yeast aroma. Good carbonation, fizzy mouthfeel with a very slightly bitter lemon peel finish. Light, citrusy, refreshing body. Yeast takes a back seat to the fruit making it quite light and refreshing.
