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!

Pours a soft and cloudy pale blonde with a sticky two finger tight white head. Very heavily spiced....very heavily. This one needs to take two steps back and breathe. Very raw and earthy aroma with a heavy spice component and very noticeable over ripe fruit character. Heavy with lemongrass and yeast. Sharp and pretty much astringent spice character in the mouth. I get a lot of ’Sorachi Ace’ here, may just be the herbal spice notes mixed with overripe fruit....which is what Sorachi Ace smells like to me.

unclemattie (4356) - Georgia, USA - MAY 15, 2013
12oz bottle. Gold color. Aroma of hot dog flavored water & citrus. Thin body. Flavors of spice, and herbs (hotdogs), light citrus, and fizzy grain. Very fizzy carbonation. Saisons are not my favorite style. (3701)

nick76 (4312) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 13, 2013
The aroma is a bit watery, yeasty, and grainy with hints of citrus and lightly spicy. The appearance is hazy gold with a smallish head. The taste is like the aroma with pepper in the finish. The palate is thin. Overall drinkable but it does have an off astringent quality I am not a fan of.

From a 12 oz bottle shared in Avon NC. Pours a clear pale gold with a thin off white head. Aroma of bubblegum and banana. Flavors of cardamom and clove. Crisp, clean finish.

Somewhere... 12oz: Pours light golden with a white head. Aroma is farmhouse funk, flowers, and spice. Taste is bitter at the front. Funky. Full saison taste with a light body. Some aftertaste. Almost no sweetness.
