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!

Pours gold with a thin white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, pepper and citrus. Taste is bitter, herbal with lots of pepper and some grapefruit. Nothing exciting but easy to drink and refreshing.

blklab2007 (1968) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Bottle poured a golden color with a covering of white head that hung on well. Aroma has grains, spices, and herbs. Mouth feel is medium and there is medium low carbonation. Flavor leads in with spice and herbs while there is a grainy Saison underneath. I thought from the fruit looking thing on the label there would be some citrus or peach or something in the beer.

MadRobin (1947) - Silver Spring, 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

Tart, grassy, and full of yeast. Spice and pepper, citrus, then a trailing finish. Light and punchy.

Pale yellow with massive, creamy, white head, fine legs / Piquant nose of bologna, weed, orchard fruit, spice / Light body, creamy, lovely balance with fine bitter finish / Interesting, stylish flavors of bologna, weed, dandelion, orange peel, clove, coriander / A very appealing, different, saison, and a great summer session beer.

portableparty (1911) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAR 14, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Pours hazy gold with a light white head that leaves a thin film and collar. Aroma is bread yeast with light citrus and lemon rind. Taste is more bread biscuit peppery spice and mild citrus notes. Palate is crisp and dry. I will really enjoy this stuff when it 88 degrees out come summer.

tectactoe (1896) - 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.

Yellow orange in color... Light citrusy lemon aroma... Crisp flavor, spicy on the finish, gentle citrus notes throughout... Solid ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chinchill (1889) - 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.

Jesterdeal (1887) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Aroma is great with good black pepper, rosemary and orange peel. Pours golden amber with a huge sudsy head. Taste is very spicy with the black pepper forward and a nice dry herbal bread finish. A fantastic session beer from victory.
