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!

Bottle. Pours hazy straw with a large, quickly dissipating white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is orange and lemon zest, coriander and other spices, some earthy yeast. Flavor is all that -- stro gly spiced but balanced well with some moderate bitterness, wheat and mild maltiness. Light to medium body. Quite good.

Six pack from DeBucas. Pours out a light lemony color with a white frothy head. Light bubbly carbonation. Light citrus and yeasty aromas. Flavor is good. Very refreshing brew. Goes down easy. Clean, crisp finish. Highly under-rated.

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

Dorée, bien pétillante, mais elle présente peu de mousse ; le nez est en épices (coriandre, myrique, sapin) et en fruits (citron, mangue). Plus retenue en bouche, elle prend mieux le temps d’exprimer ses différentes composantes, trop agressives en nez. Les saveurs sont justes, bien balancées, les malts ressortent, bref c’est une bonne Saison, totalement réussie, si l’on oublie ses petits impairs.

Beaver (1373) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 8, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours hazy golden yellow with a big meringue white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is fruits and funk with some piney, floral hops and perfumey spices.

The flavor is sweet bready malts with a little funky fruit and some spices (corriander, pepper) and a good sized piney floral bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, I’m not sure I’d call it a saison. But I like it as a session beer with good bitterness and some funk.

kbutler1 (1367) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 5, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2013 Bottle. Pours a light yellow straw color, slightly cloudy. Fluffy white head with lace. Melon, slight spice, and orange. Medium mouthfeel. Meh. Orange rind bitterness and some spice. It’s ok but not great.

can8ianben (1364) - Souderton, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Golden color. Opens sweet and finishes dry. Aggressively hopped which ends up hiding a bit of the Belgian yeast. Still, really cool beer right here. Very tasty.

GTAEgeek (1343) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 21, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Pale yellow, with a small, bubbly, white head. The aroma is lemons, hay, and some dusty, barnyard notes. The flavor is sweet and musty up front, with a bitter and sour finish. The palate is light to medium, astringent, dry, and a little grainy. Overall, this is a surprisingly funky and dry American saison, but the aftertaste is long, sour, and unpleasant.

Hazy yellow with a big, puffy white head. Major carbonation. Aroma is orange and lemon. Belgian witbier funk/sweetness, with just a hint of that sour Saison stuff. Perfumey as hell. Also has an actual malt backbone. Grassy and yet with a touch of bready caramel malts. I’m really REALLY impressed with the scent. Taste is more of a Belgian golden ale, with more of a barley malt than a wheat malt. The taste is a little flatter than the aroma would suggest but still pleasant enough. Doesn’t have the "punch" to it that the aroma has. Very bubbly and fizzy on the palate; prickly. This is a very summery citrus flavor, light enough for a hot day but not bereft of flavors.
