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!

lamas (1362) - Washington DC, USA - APR 20, 2013
Bottle. Enjoy by: 07/21/13. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a skim of a beige head. A zesty aroma of citrus rinds, oranges, pineapples, bananas, bubblegum, candi sugar, cloves, nutmeg, light coriander, pepper, and a sizable yeastiness. Semi-sweet upfront taste-wise with a little candi sugar and bubblegum. Some cereal grains and zesty citrus rinds follow. Spicy. Yeasty. Kinda tangy. More than a few dashes of pepper in the moderately dry finish. Very enjoyable and very sessionable for a saison.

thegreenrooster (3241) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - APR 20, 2013
Pour is a cloudy blonde with a average white head. Aroma is spicy and peppery with some lemon zest. Flavor is again spicy,peppery with notes of Belgain yeast and green hops. I’m digging the idea of a session saison. The only reason I did not give it a higher rateing is b/c all the things you are looking for in a saison are there just kinda muted.

Lots of citrus and spicy yeast to this one. Light, crisp, and clean with floral notes. Good bitterness in the finish. Fantastic summer beer. Very bright and refreshing with some great flavors.

Elwood (3311) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - APR 14, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a hazy greenish dark yellow with a nice head of loose, small bubbles. The nose is zesty with nice grass and saison yeast notes, perhaps a little lemon peel and hay. Spritely on the tongue with lots of green grass, a little green apple peel, lemon pith, and green peppercorn. Light body with a fairly clean finish. Somewhere between De Ranke XX Bitter and Saison du Buff flavor wise. Very solid stuff.

Lukaduke (2243) - Portland, Maine, USA - APR 12, 2013
Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a finger of fizzy foam. The nose is a bit dirty with a peppery diaper like spice that dissipates slowly as the beer warms. The palate is crisper than the nose would have lead me to believe and confirms that it is a solid drinker and not a drainpour... Earthy yeast profile with traces of pepper and citrus to add a slight complexity. Not bad but Ill stick with the Helios over this anytime.... although the lower alcohol levels in this make is a plausible session beer.
