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!

Bottle, pours a cloudy golden yellow with bright white head. Pear and yeast in the aroma. Taste of lemon, pear and spicy yeast.

For the price would have expected something good. This is like a spicy lemonade. Glad I got a sample bottle cause yet another brew that I would be incredibly mad if I had paid the higher price for 6 of these.

Yellow, lemon and coriander spicy notes. So much spice in a saison sabotages the flavor I expect from a beer of this style. An unnuanced "saison" is not interesting.

jandd1983 (2563) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Sampled at ESBLS. It poured a clear yellow color with a white head. The aroma was earthy, spicy wheat malts, citrus, hops with pear esters and black pepper, ginger notes. The taste was of medium hops, some bitterness, light fruity esters, with pale malts and a dry finish.

RichTheVillan (2872) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; clear straw yellow pour with a ridiculously big head, aroma has ginger lemon and lime, taste has spice citrus, some yeasty action, pretty good for a faux saison.

Odd beer with a plastic taste plus citrus and berries. Good head and medium body. Good spice flavor.

aracauna (3084) - Georgia, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Hazy gold. Surprising bit of hop aroma. Definite bit of funk from the yeast. Fairly dry in the finish.

unclemike (2222) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Pours a hazy golden yellow on tap with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave light lacing. Aroma of spice, wheat, and a slight funk. Taste follows, slight bitter finish, clean and slightly tart. Good saison, but nothing that exciting

fitwitchik (310) - USA - JUN 24, 2014
Poured from a bottle into a Victory Pint glass a light lemon yellow with a thick white head. Aroma is saison spice some light citrus. Flavor is upfront coriander/clove spice thinking orange as well. Also some bready funk. Fairly average by a stretch for a session. Bought a single bottle on whim and would have rather now not...

blklab2007 (1962) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Bottle poured a golden color with a covering of white head that hung on well. Aroma has grains, spices, and herbs. Mouth feel is medium and there is medium low carbonation. Flavor leads in with spice and herbs while there is a grainy Saison underneath. I thought from the fruit looking thing on the label there would be some citrus or peach or something in the beer.
