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!

tectactoe (3122) - Michigan, USA - APR 18, 2014
Bottle: Thanks, Jeff. Pours nuclear, piss-like yellow with a mild haze about it; gray-tinted, mostly white head quickly fades to a soapy looking collar. Aroma has notes of lemongrass, clove gum, faint citrus, & a hint of funky must. Fresh, bright, albeit a little mild. Taste has lots of dry cotton funk up front, followed by vague citrus notes, lots of yeast, mild white pepper, & a touch of bittering hops that bite in the finish. Crisp, clean finish. Nothing too special here, but decent for something you can easily slam.

chinchill (3118) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Undated 12 oz bottle into a Piraat tulip glass. A: Pours a slightly hazed golden color. The white head has moderate size and duration but leaves ample lacing on the glass. High carbonation by appearances (and feel). S: Plenty of lemon and other citrus with coriander and a background of grass, hops and wheat. Nice complexity for a 4.5% saison, albeit not very appealing. T- Notably tart and fruity with some lemon zest, coriander, banana, and vague spices. M- light bodied with crisp, high carbonation; dry finish. O- a flavorful Saison that is too spiced to serve as a session beer for some. Nice and reffreshig, nonetheless, on a hot summer day.

madvike (3105) - 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.

BenH (3068) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 23, 2015
Bottle. Pale golden with billowing white head. I found the aroma offensive at first, like lemon scented cleaning products. It’s growing on me though, lemon and lime, sherbet, bret. Taste is a bit effed up too, lemon, citrus, plastic. Slightly tart and dry.

Huhzubendah (3059) - Washington DC, USA - APR 3, 2013
The body is transparent and pale straw with a little over an inch of fluffy white head. the aroma brings hops, funk, farm, sunshine, lemons, lemon rind, grass, a touch of spice. Nice floral notes and hops. Light and refreshing. I’m really digging the light body and low alcohol. A thirst quencher of a beer, and packed with flavor. I’ll have no trouble with this sixer and definitely see this as a repeat purchase for hot weather beer consumption, i.e. lawnmowing beer.

Ron (3058) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 14, 2014
Bottle. Pours a pale hazy yellow. Huge white head on this leaves a decent amount of lacing. Aroma is floral, lemon, straw. Taste is light bodied, slightly sweet with strong notes of lemon and pepper spice. Very crisp, lemony finish. Would be nice in the summer.

drjay44 (2996) - 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

jbruner (2985) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Pours a hazy golden yellow on tap with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave light lacing. Aroma of spice, wheat, and a slight funk. Taste follows, slight bitter finish, clean and slightly tart. Good saison, but nothing that exciting.

keepersj12 (2945) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - MAR 7, 2013
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.

Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - APR 30, 2014
On tap at Big Texas Beer Fest. Light pour with a big white head. Aroma is pineapple, grain, and floor cleaner. Taste is chemicals, orange, and more cleaner.
