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!

FROTHINGSLOSH (6723) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2013
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a pale yellow color with a huge fluffy white head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was a lovely mix of mustiness with moderate notes of pepper, citrus and bread. The flavor was dry, musty, dusty and funky with notes of pepper, bread dough and citrus. Long dry pepper and must finish. Medium body. Solid.

jcr (2554) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - APR 21, 2013
Bottle. Cloudy light gold. Frothy white head. Lots of spice in the aroma. Cardamon, clove, all spice, herbs, toasted grain. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery turning velvety texture, lively carbonation. Dry enough, but the spice tastes forced and infused, making one wonder what they’re masking in order to pull off a 4.5% saison. No nuances here.

lamas (1551) - 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 (4001) - 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.
