COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Itís 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 youíll 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!

A fresh bottle. Strong and pleasantly herbal nose pushing lemon and rose hips in with the light tartness. With the cleanser feel, has some slight wittish character. Lightly hazy bright yellow body with a lacing white head. Taste is faintly sweet to start but dries out quickly as the bitterness picks up, not so much hoppy as stripping and herbal, nailing those medieval traditionals and bringing light flights of purifying astringency without the rubberiness. Peel and pepper, grainy hay. Clean yeast, fullish body, seems to be less alcoholic than it is, though I think Iíd prefer a lighter body. Honestly, Iím uderwhelmed, but itís fresh and repeatable.

Bottle. Golden pour with a small, white head. Spicy and yeasty aroma with notes of hay, citrus, florals and earthy/herbal hops. Similar flavors and finish. Light and easy drinking.

Cybercat (3223) - Georgia, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Comes out of the tap a nice, bubbly, clear golden with a fine-bubbled white head. Hearty aroma is quite yeasty, with fruity and subtle malty notes. Crisp flavor has yeasty, malty, fruity, and coriander tones - definitely for sipping rather than chugging. Texture has average thickness and fizz, but scarcely subtracts from the enjoyableness of this brew. Swing a session with this one.

gripweed57 (603) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAR 23, 2013
12 ounce bottle. Slightly hazy straw gold color topped by a small bubbly white head. Fragrant lemony malt aroma has hints of coriander and hay. Dryish citrus malt flavor with notes of wheat, yeast, more coriander and grassy hops. Their is an underlying funky, sulphury earthiness that adds a uniqueness to this ale. Finishes crisp and dry with atouch of lemon peel.

Draft at two stones.... Pours a cloudy bright yellow, slight orange tint. Decent little head. Nice nose of spices, earthy, flowers, camomile and some hops. Taste is the sames, spices, flowers, grains, floral notes, camomile, little citrus lime taste..... slight hoppiness in the after taste to balance it. Body is light, fluffy and really easy to drink. Decent stuff....

maxwelldeux (3496) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow color with a moderate white head. Nose is quite sour and with a bit of a wild farmhouse smell. Taste is slightly sour, but not overly flavorful. Meh.

HeadyDE (478) - Delaware, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Draft at 2SP..yellowish color..lemon aroma..some citrus also present..quite easy drinking..but this just lacked tht it factor that left a solid impression..was crisp and ok but just seems to be missing that typical saison profile.not getting much of the usual tastes and aromas..ok.not really much else to say..

3fourths (7879) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 22, 2013
bottle. hazy gold body, short white head. basically a witbier, just like ernie said. musty perfume, orange jam (jelly? i already told you once), potpourri orange peel and sulfuric vitamin yeast in the nose. lean, dry, bitter texture and flavor. brash dryness with bracing hop acidity, totally unbalanced. okay, it doesnít taste bad, itís not the smell and flavor. itís how out of balance it is. thereís nothing here to make me want another drink. itís horribly bitter and rough for itís size. ugh.
