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!

madvike (2672) - 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 shouldn’t be spicy. Thin, with biting carbonation. Just not my thing.

I don’t think this is much of a saison but a nice drinkable beer if warm weather ever returns. Pours a pale yellow with a lacing head. The aroma has a lot of piney hops. The flavor as well with a nice sweet balance. Thin as to be expected. I could see myself pounding down a few of these after mowing the lawn.

On tap @ Prohibition Pig (Waterbury). Clear golden with a medium white head and intense lacing. Aroma of banana, malt, Saison yeast, spices and light citrus. Taste is moderately sweet with spices, light citrus, malt, light banana and Saison yeast. Medium body. Quite dry. Moderate carbonation. Very good Saison. Sessionable.

drjay44 (2585) - Salida, Colorado, USA - APR 1, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Pours a thick, well retained, fluffy white head, with some lacing, over a very slightly hazy yellow (SRM 3) body....nose is cereal, light lemon, hints of allspice.....taste is light lemon, allspice, leading to a dry, moderately bitter, slightly peppery finish....mouth feel light of medium, carbonation adds light acid tingle. This falls well within this very broad style. It is low in ABV, and is a bit too hazy, but has a nice clean, refreshing finish. Complexity in aroma is low, but the flavors are well on. BJCP 7/2/14/4/7

Hazy golden-yellow body, solid white head, soapy lacing. Nose show lemon zest, herbal and floral, light grains and yeast. Flavor is a bit more mellow with less definition. Medium to light bodied appropriate carbonation dry, refreshing finish.

RichTheVillan (2509) - 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.

jandd1983 (2505) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Sampled at ESBLS. It poured a clear yellow color with a white head. The aroma was earthy, spicy wheat malts, citrus, hops with pear esters and black pepper, ginger notes. The taste was of medium hops, some bitterness, light fruity esters, with pale malts and a dry finish.
