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!

sonnycheeba (4105) - 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.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow color with a moderate white head. Nose is quite sour and with a bit of a wild farmhouse smell. Taste is slightly sour, but not overly flavorful. Meh.

AirForceHops (4079) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 29, 2013
12 oz. bottle from Top Shelf Brews. Snifter displays a nice unfiltered gold with small white head, leaving lace down the sides. Nose is limes, lemon zest and a zesty spice. Taste is mostly identical to the nose with the addition of honey and dry grassy hops. Light pepper in the finish.

RichTheVillan (4077) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; clear straw yellow pour with a ridiculously big head, aroma has ginger lemon and lime, taste has spice citrus, some yeasty action, pretty good for a faux saison.

Pint on tap. Lightly hazy golden body with a lasting disc of cream on top. Mild aroma of pine resin and earthy lemon honey. Tastes of earthy beeswax, resin and a touch of white grape skins. Medium body is dry and tingly with high carbonation.

TURDFERGUSON (4008) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 7, 2013
Pale yellow with a thick white head producing loads of webby white lace. Nose lemon verbena, pepper, light melon. Flavor is spicy at first with more lemon, citrus, and a light herbal medley. Dry, lightly herbal, bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Bottle from Samís, Durham. All hail the session brew trend. Nicely lemonade-y pour, moderately cloudy, could almost pass for a Berliner crossed with a singel (the fluffy head of the latter gives this one away as farmhouse). Nice nose, citrus wakeup call and spice/yeast to complement. Full bodied, nicely spicy in places on the palate, I was pleased that the herbs didnít get too assertive, allowing the more bitter and lightly hopped qualities to shine through. Well done. I should get some more.

Cavie (3985) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - AUG 4, 2014
BTBF. Clear yellow appearance. Bit of a tart aroma. Fruity flavor, spicy, dry and yeast.

Butters (3940) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 14, 2013
Clear light golden yellow with ample bright white head. Smells fantastic sagey lemon pepper. Flavor is not quite as good, but has a spicy bite and a green citrus hop character. Good moderately high carbonation. Smells better than it tastes though.
