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!

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...

lesifflebiere (1355) - 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.

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.

Bottle. Clear gold with a 1 finger white head. Aroma is spelt and floral notes. Taste adds a heaping portion of mint and some citrus in the finish. Soft mouthfeel and light carb. Not bad but a little weird.

Brewman63 (5) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2014 does not count
A nice easy drinking saison. Crisp with just the right amount of aftertaste for the style.

Ferris (5005) - 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.

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.

Mora2000 (5856) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 26, 2014
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.

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