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!

ajnepple (2537) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - MAR 27, 2013

MrBunn (2507) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2013
Bottle. Pour is a cloudy gold with a medium head and intriguing aromas of orange and lemon zest, white pepper and a little hay. Flavor is similar but clean and refreshing. It has quite a bit if zingy citrus to it which makes it pretty interesting and just enough spice to give it a little bite. I liked this beer quite a bit, especially considering the low abv.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 3, 2013
UPDATED: APR 15, 2013 Bottle. Pours a pale, slightly hazy straw gold. Light, fluffy white head and good retention as well as lacing. Nose shows some sharp herbal and spice notes: sage, basil, grass, maybe coriander. Taste adds some white pepper and a nice grassy hop bite. A nice alternative to other session beers. A baby cousin to Saison du Buff with a splash of Prima Pils, perhaps.

jbruner (2478) - 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.

Beergeek23322 (2470) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - APR 12, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Pours golden yellow and not as hazy as other saisons. The head is white and foamy. The aromas are more hoppy than your typical saison too. That being said, if a good beer that I would drink again.

snoworsummer (2439) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Draft at Beer and Bacon. Pours cloudy, bright yellow with a fizzy white head. Tastes like herbs, sweet lemon, musky grains. Light body and low carbonation. Light aroma of musky lemon and herbs.

MadIndian (2434) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 21, 2014
On draft at Isaacs. Nice notes of citrus, peach, candy, clove and banana. Loved the candy / banana aroma. I found this very easy to drink and the finish was crisp.

Lukaduke (2362) - Portland, Maine, USA - APR 12, 2013
Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a finger of fizzy foam. The nose is a bit dirty with a peppery diaper like spice that dissipates slowly as the beer warms. The palate is crisper than the nose would have lead me to believe and confirms that it is a solid drinker and not a drainpour... Earthy yeast profile with traces of pepper and citrus to add a slight complexity. Not bad but Ill stick with the Helios over this anytime.... although the lower alcohol levels in this make is a plausible session beer.
