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!

Fatehunter (2250) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Poured two fingers of head on a hazy, light straw colored body. It has a pleasant aroma of grain and citrus. The taste is mellow but good. A little spice and Belgian candy sweetness with a mild citrus bitter finish. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. A solid session saison.

trapped (2249) - New York, TURKEY - APR 21, 2013
Drought. Rich yellow color, small whitish foamy head, hoppy aroma, low carbonation, abrupt finish. Nice refreshing seasonal.

msante79 (2224) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - JUL 27, 2013
12oz bottle from Binny’s. Pours hazy golden yellow with white head. Aromas of lemony citrus, light spices, and saison yeast. Flavors are on the lighter side with some light spices, bready malts, little yeast, and some citrus. Nice drinkable beer.

tmongoose (2221) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 13, 2013
12oz bottle poured golden yellow with just a touch of haze. White head that leaves a nice lacing on the glass. The aroma was of some undetermined spice notes and citrus. The aromas were light in nature. The flavor is a light to medium evervescent blend of those spice mixes and citrus possibly lemon with some yeasty funk but its not overpowering. Overall a pretty good flavor and this is one you could easily drink a few. There is a lot of carbonation with this beer as well.

conway (2210) - - MAY 24, 2014
Bottle. Clear gold with a 1 finger white head. Aroma is spelt and floral notes. Taste adds a heaping portion of mint and some citrus in the finish. Soft mouthfeel and light carb. Not bad but a little weird.

ROGUE (2182) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - OCT 6, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a pale straw color with a slight haze, with a huge, fluffy white head that lingers. Aroma is grainy, some barnyard, lemony citrus and some peppery spiciness. Very floral flavor up front, lemon and orange zest, herbal and slightly medicinal pepperiness on the finish. Almost tart tangy feel, lightly effervescent, on the lighter side of medium bodied, finishes dry.

ross (2146) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Yellow colored pour with a white head. Smells yeasty, malty, and kind of citrusy. Pretty easy drinking - smooth, refreshing, served pretty cold - i couldnt image it being better as it gets warmer. Not a bad beer.

gsmitty80 (2130) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 15, 2013
This has been my go-to beer as of late. Sessionable is the key although it does start to get a bit estery after a few.

Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Bottle. Unclear, bright yellow. Nose is initially slight wet straw/funk, heavy spice, lemon citrus. Comes of a bit odd to me. Taste is tangy lemony, grapefruit hints, coriander, funky straw. Refreshing, dry, interesting.

blklab2007 (2118) - 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.
