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!

A lot of nice flavors going on in this easy drinking saison. The hops and spices blend well together.

degbert (1062) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 31, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with large amounts of visible carbonation and a fine-grained, quick-dissipating, white head. Nose is lemon, some phenols, and a touch of latex. Very crisp on the tongue, with definite bitter lemon notes; light hops present, bready grains, but the bitter sourness, reminiscent of citrus pith, remains dominant; too much so. Finish is acidic and short. There’s something out of whack here.

flatmatt (1051) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - NOV 15, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours a hazed light golden with a white head. Yeasty aroma with orange peel and lemongrass, coriander. Light palate with similar flavors, coriander, lemongrass, orange peel, other spices. Light, but pretty tasty.

jbeatty (1014) - New York, USA - APR 8, 2013
Bottle, 04/08/2013. Pours pale golden orange, lively fizzy white head, nice retention and lacing. Aroma is lemon wheat and light malts, haze of yeast, chamomile, spices. Taste is pale malts, peppery spices and grassy herbal hops. Light palate, though perhaps a bit chalky. Was hoping for a little more finesse, but still alright for a light drinker.

jhamp9 (1012) - Corinth, Texas, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Clear gold pour with a white head. Strong pepper and clove aroma with some yeast. Taste again is very spicy with some yeast, earth, and vegetables. Prickly carbonation.

I’ve been liking this a lot. nice spritzy head with lacing. Very bright, sharp and dry up front and then the peppery spice comes in followed by a bit more herbal character and finishing light and somewhat lemony. A beer in three cohesive parts. And a low ABV keeps it refreshing.

pete4999 (992) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Bottle, as pictured. I really enjoyed this...a lot. Very sweet with nice pepper fizziness. Light and orange/lemon citrus feel to it. Perhaps relies a little too heavy on the spices but I liked it.

thome50 (989) - Boringville aka Irvine, California, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Tasting poured in the aisle of Whole Foods in DC from who I assume was an employee but could have been a strange mentally challenged guy who just decided to start opening beers and pouring them for strangers. Either way, thanks! Pours a very, very light yellow with slight white head. Aroma is very muted with slight belgian spice, banana and wheat. Taste is a light saison that is very dry and slight white pepper.

Bottle put pale yellow. Nose Belgian yeast, ester, and spice. Taste citrus, lemon, clove, Belgian yeast. Nice bite for a session ale.

574deadzone (984) - North Central, Indiana, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Pours a hazy straw golden with a fair eggshell head that settles slowly and leaves some soapy, clingy lace. Nose involves zesty spice, peppery, light lemony citrus notes, some sourdough, and some floral stuff. Lightly sweet, decently bitter, not tart. Lighter bodied, fluffy, active, lightly oily, with a drying toasted doughy finish. Nice brew, enjoyable.
