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!

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. Iím 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.

theisti (3451) - 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.

reggiedunlop (3417) - 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.

Terminus (3342) - 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!

Elwood (3336) - 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.

superspak (3331) - Michigan, USA - OCT 17, 2013
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, best before 8/13/2013. Pours moderately hazy golden straw color with a 2-3 finger dense and rocky white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon zest, orange zest, pear, coriander, clove, pepper, ginger, wheat, bread, floral, grass, herbal, and yeast earthiness. very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of yeast ester, spice, and moderate malt notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon zest, orange zest, pear, coriander, clove, pepper, ginger, wheat, bread, floral, grass, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of lemon, pear, coriander, clove, pepper, cracker, bread, floral, grass, and herbal on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, spice, and moderate malt flavors; with great flavor robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a smooth and crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice session saison style. Nice complexity, balance, and robustness of yeast, spice, and moderate malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
