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!

Elwood (3311) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - APR 14, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a hazy greenish dark yellow with a nice head of loose, small bubbles. The nose is zesty with nice grass and saison yeast notes, perhaps a little lemon peel and hay. Spritely on the tongue with lots of green grass, a little green apple peel, lemon pith, and green peppercorn. Light body with a fairly clean finish. Somewhere between De Ranke XX Bitter and Saison du Buff flavor wise. Very solid stuff.

AirForceHops (3295) - 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.

theisti (3258) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - APR 1, 2013
12 oz bottle purchased at Liquor Barrel in Golden Valley, Minnesota. Enjoy by July 21, 2013 printed on bottle neck. The pour is lightly hazed pale yellow with a frothy one inch white head. The aroma is light phenols, herbal, orange lemon citrus, and soft clove. Nice integrated, complex nose. The taste lemon citrus, herbal, peppery phenols, and finishes with a grassy hay. The palate is light bodied, soft carbonation, and a dry earthy, mineral clove herbal finish. A lot of nice flavor in this beer, easy drinking.

Terminus (3254) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle-purchased at total wine in Springfield, VA march 2014 Pours dark yellow hue with lite haziness and a small fizzy white head. not much to look at here. nose is very spicy-lots of gop, pepper, corriander maybe a pinch of lemongrass. flavors are also very spicy. if this were a full-bodied saison, i would hate it. it shows that there are now so many low-abv beers out there with lots of flavor. big peppery flavors, lite bitterness, with a touch of grains. this is actually very tasty. Even though the rating isnt that high, i think its worthy of a session brew!

thegreenrooster (3241) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - APR 20, 2013
Pour is a cloudy blonde with a average white head. Aroma is spicy and peppery with some lemon zest. Flavor is again spicy,peppery with notes of Belgain yeast and green hops. I’m digging the idea of a session saison. The only reason I did not give it a higher rateing is b/c all the things you are looking for in a saison are there just kinda muted.

auerbrau (3177) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - APR 28, 2013
12oz Bottle, purchased at Wakefield Liquors - Wakefield, RI. For starters, I let myself get hosed for $1.99 to try something that I would hope was anything like a Dupont Avril. For a session Saison, this is a pretty lackluster Belgian Wit. WTF Victory? This is terrible. Orange, coriander, gross soap bomb, with almost no body. Officially done with Victory.

RichTheVillan (3163) - 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.

reggiedunlop (3109) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Pours a clear pale yellow with a thick white head...nice lacing and retention. Aroma has lots of lemon and some light herbal notes...a bit like thyme...touch of clove. Flavor has lots of grassy/spicy bitterness...still lemon and significant herbal notes. Mouthfeel is light and the finish is dry and herbal/bitter.

aracauna (3094) - Georgia, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Hazy gold. Surprising bit of hop aroma. Definite bit of funk from the yeast. Fairly dry in the finish.
