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!

transparent gold, thin white bubbled head with decent lacing. Esters out of control after three pilsners, pepper, ginger, and lemongrass. Light dough adds balance. Peppery lemongrass flavor up front followed by dough and heavy citrus, finishing with bubblegum and crust hints. High carbonation accents esters, but overall pleasant.

Very light gold. Big fluffy head. Mild fresh basil scent, big fresh basil taste. Otherwise light bodied, flat flavors, not too good.

jjgmd (1462) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Pours a semi clear light golden yellow with a small head. Nose is grass and wild outdoor spices. Taste is lemony, yeasty and full of spice. Obviously, very drinkable, but it is a session beer. Different but one time only. Finish is spicy as well, with lingering citrus. Quaff Score 6 / 10

callmemickey (2868) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Hazy golden-yellow body, solid white head, soapy lacing. Nose show lemon zest, herbal and floral, light grains and yeast. Flavor is a bit more mellow with less definition. Medium to light bodied appropriate carbonation dry, refreshing finish.

EithCubes (5000) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 24, 2013
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 I’d prefer a lighter body. Honestly, I’m uderwhelmed, but it’s fresh and repeatable.

jcweaver (768) - VA Beach, Virginia, USA - MAR 24, 2013
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 (3375) - 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 (728) - 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.
