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!

Garrold (4118) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2014
Bottle from Bottledog, Kings Cross. Hazy, yellow colour. Thin, bubbly, white head. Smells like the lemon infused aftershave youíd get in a Turkish barbers shop. Lemongrass. Sorbet. Taste is dry, and a little pithy bitter. Fresh palate. A little creaminess. Finish is spicy dry, with bitterness at the end.

Gription79 (2806) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. The aroma is very interesting, orange, citrus, peppery. The flavor is husky, peppery, spicy. This is thin and astringent, lacks complexity.

allmyvinyl (9358) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 13, 2014
355ml bottle at home. Pours pale yellow, light haze. Strong herbal note, bay, maybe lemon balm, more lemon itself, white pepper. Taste has a zingy freshness, light saline note. Light body, creamy texture, bay lingers.

AshtonMcCobb (5170) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - bright golden with a nice head. Nose - lemon and a green pungent herb thing. Also a touch of fresh sweat. Cactus/aloe Vera. Maybe bay leaves. Taste - medicinal lemon balm. More fresh sweat and some tomato stalks. Palate - light to medium bodied with a tangy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - opposite of synergy. The overall package didnít live up to the beautiful complex aroma.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 9/20
madvike (3192) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 12, 2014
Bottle - Pours clear golden with a thin ring of off-white head. Nose is white pepper, coriander, and dry, lightly fruity malt. Mineral as well, but real spicy. Taste is really spicy with lemon peel, but has a weird plastic note as well. A touch of nuttiness (!) and a perfumy, spicy finish. Not my bag at all. When I want to session something, it sure as hell shouldnít be spicy. Thin, with biting carbonation. Just not my thing.

Jayb0 (1156) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JUN 10, 2014
Iíve been liking this a lot. nice spritzy head with lacing. Very bright, sharp and dry up front and then the peppery spice comes in followed by a bit more herbal character and finishing light and somewhat lemony. A beer in three cohesive parts. And a low ABV keeps it refreshing.

Sammy (11076) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 10, 2014
Fair saison, on tap at MacGregor Amherst. Light yellow with carbonation bubbles. A story in pepper.

Darwenus (867) - 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 didnít much like. Not enough to ruin it, but I never quite got to where I didnít mind that aftertaste.

jdb288 (584) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUN 9, 2014
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 Iíd like...chewier and denser. Good, not great.

Caytinator (1005) - 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 itís a pretty good beer.
