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!

Bacterial (2764) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Slightly hazy yellow pour wihth a nice white head. Slightly floral nose with hints of grassiness. Floral notes also in the taste, hops and then lots of bitterness on the finish. I don’t taste any of the fruit character that others seem to be getting.

Draught at bar. Golden color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, orange peels, earthy notes, grapefruit and some peppers. Dry bitter finish with citrus. Nice saison.

Chudwick (2734) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - SEP 16, 2013
12oz bottle - pours hazy pale gold with small white head. Nose is lemon peel and floral. Sip adds straw. Sticky. Light mouthfeel for the style. Not too spicy or yeasty. Sessionable? Yes.

MadRobin (2726) - Silver Spring, Alabama, USA - MAY 8, 2013
On tap at Always Ron's in Hagerstown, MD. Clear, yellow-amber with an off-white head and excellent lacing. Aroma of yeast, fruit, pine, floral perfume and mild earthy hops. Taste of floral hops, earthy herbs and spice, year and pine. Much hoppier, or at least less malty, than your typical saison. Medium body and medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

MrBunn (2677) - 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.

glennmastrange (2606) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JAN 12, 2015
Bottle. Moderate to heavy straw for the malt, flowers, herbs and lemon, moderate barnyard for the yeast, with notes of coriander, melon and damp wood. Head is large, frothy turning rocky, white with good lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is slightly hazy yet sparkling light amber. Flavor starts lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately acidic and lightly bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a fizzy carbonation. Nice depth in aroma, but this Saison is a little flat in flavor.

Pours lightly hazy yellow with a thin head. Citrus and spice with a somewhat bitter finish. Not bad.
