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!

Fair saison, on tap at MacGregor Amherst. Light yellow with carbonation bubbles. A story in pepper.

Darwenus (554) - Virginia, USA - JUN 9, 2014
It pours clear yellow with a fair amount of head and lace. There is a lot of carbonation that rises from the bottom until the last sip. The smell is pretty good, a little malt and yeast and citrus. The flavor is the same, but with a little bit of a sulfur aftertaste that I didn’t much like. Not enough to ruin it, but I never quite got to where I didn’t mind that aftertaste.

Draft. Pours gold with thick white head. Aroma is lemon, misc. citrus, sugar cookie. Taste is sour lemon (not as aggresive as expected), some dough/yeast/biscuit elements, orange rind. Not as crisp as I’d like...chewier and denser. Good, not great.

Caytinator (948) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUN 8, 2014
12oz bottle. Too citrusy, I think. Clear, straw colored beer with light lacing and a small/moderate bubbly head. Pleasant enough aroma, zesty. Taste is average for the style, with some spices and citrus-y bitter finish. I think it’s a pretty good beer.

jamestulloch (1406) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle from Drinkmonger. Hazy pale golden body with a thick white head. Lively carbonation. Great lacing. Aroma of vine tomatoes, lemons, cardamom and bay leaf. Refreshing flavour of mint, cucumber, grass and pink grapefruit. Thin body with a watery texture. Sharp fizz. Crisp and delicious.

A very nice session ale. Light, floral, and fruity with a balanced amount of spice. Bitterness is also understated.

lesifflebiere (1273) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 5, 2014
Dorée, bien pétillante, mais elle présente peu de mousse ; le nez est en épices (coriandre, myrique, sapin) et en fruits (citron, mangue). Plus retenue en bouche, elle prend mieux le temps d’exprimer ses différentes composantes, trop agressives en nez. Les saveurs sont justes, bien balancées, les malts ressortent, bref c’est une bonne Saison, totalement réussie, si l’on oublie ses petits impairs.

roder60 (1285) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Bought a case of this on sale for like $22 which was a steal of a deal. Poured a slightly hazy yellow with huge foamy white head. Aroma lemon yeasty. Flavor lots of sour lemon up front then biscuty middle. Found to be not a fan - too much citrus up front, bit too heavy of mouthfeel made it so I couldn’t drink multiple as a session beer.

On tap at Big Texas Beer Fest. Golden with a white head. The aroma and flavor have some biscuit malt as well as some Belgian yeast notes. I also get a hint of orange citrus as well as some very light earthy funk notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
