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!

Gooseunc (15) - Prince William County, Virginia, USA - MAY 21, 2014
12 oz long neck...pours w/slight haze, light amber in color. Lacey white head on top...not a lot of laces on my tulip like a lot of others in this style. A lot of strong citrus on the nose...typical Belgian sour on the tongue. I like the light, effervescent presentation. Nice session saison.

Ferris (3081) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 21, 2014
Draft - Lots of sweet light tropical fruit, lychee and yeast. Cloudy gold with a rich white head. Lychee, grass, hoppy bitterness and a dry herbal finish.

beerbomb (191) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 19, 2014
extra points based on the session denomination - this is like a good spiced wit/saison but abbreviated - everything is there - some funky yeast, lemon peel, some pronounced hops, pollen, earthiness and spices but lighter. flavor is light bodied but grainy, spicy, funky, a little citrusy and peppery - nice spicy and yeasty presence with good hops from start to finish - excellent light beer with max flavor - if you think youll like it, you probably will...

mfp13jr (148) - Glenville, New York, USA - MAY 19, 2014
Light slightly hazy yellow with plenty of fluffy white head. Smells of light coarse grain with a hint of lemon, ever so slight. Taste follows the nose with more grain, which is misleading because this beer is clearer than it tastes.

vlan1 (190) - Eastern Shore, Maryland, USA - MAY 18, 2014

sonnycheeba (3382) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Sample pour at a festival. Pours mostly clear yellow with creamy white head. Aroma is cereal and cracker malts, floral notes, light herbs, farmhouse yeast esters, and light fruit notes. Flavor is dry malt base, yeasty and light fruit esters, light hops, and faint herbs; dry finish. Light/medium body and medium carbonation.

sfontain (795) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 9, 2014
12 oz bottle, Kroger Bridge St. Light golden; fizzy, white head becomes a negligible ring; light to no lacing. Aroma has a lot of Belgian fruity yeast going on. Bright, citrusy, sweet, spicy. Lively, biscuity, dry, crisp, bitter finish. Lighter body, nearly no stickiness. Solid session brew.

thome50 (1003) - Boringville aka Irvine, California, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Tasting poured in the aisle of Whole Foods in DC from who I assume was an employee but could have been a strange mentally challenged guy who just decided to start opening beers and pouring them for strangers. Either way, thanks! Pours a very, very light yellow with slight white head. Aroma is very muted with slight belgian spice, banana and wheat. Taste is a light saison that is very dry and slight white pepper.

12oz bottle pours a golden color without much head. Some spiciness and a dry finish.
