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!

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.

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.

Taste is moderately sweet with spices, light citrus, malt, light banana and Saison yeast. Medium body. Quite dry. Moderate carbonation. Very good Saison. Sessionable.

RABinCO (1399) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Bottle into a fluted glass. Clear hay with a thick white head. Aroma is spicy, citrus, white bread. Taste is like a fizzy grapefruit cocktail. Lots of spice, citrus, pine, mint. A bit thin. Definitely easy drinking.

Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours hazy light gold with a foamy white head. Aroma is fresh, but light earthy citrus. Med minus body. Flavor is lightly earthy and the flavor is something green. Had me thinking of very light bay leaf. Finishes clean, dry and a tad earthy.

Bottle. Hazey light yellow color....lots of fluffy white head. Citrus and floral nose. Tastes were bitter lemon/lime combined with dry spicey finish. Very light, refreshing, low alcohol...citrus taste was natural. unsure of spice.
