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!

Beerathon (1682) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2013
A lot of nice flavors going on in this easy drinking saison. The hops and spices blend well together.

tcane7 (1670) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Draft at Union Transfer. Pours a cloudy yellow with white head. Notes of lemon peel, orange, pepper, yeast funk. Very flavorful for a session, lots of spice and citrus. Solid bitterness in the finish.

guzzler67 (1647) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Hazy gold appearance with a small white head and decent lacing. Aroma of yeast and an array of spices in a field of grain. Dry, tart, earthy flavor with notes of lemongrass, pepper and citrus and a defined spicy aftertaste. Medium bodied mouthfeel with lively carbonation and a short lived finish.

Nephilium (1644) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Mild lemon and earthy aroma. Pours a hazy light yellow with almost no head. Light crisp flavor, with a touch of earthy notes and citrus. Very easy drinking, and a nice session beer.

strongpieman (1644) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle. Clear, yellow, tall foamy head. Very strong perfume aroma ... A bit much. Moderate finish.

nealblind (1622) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Yellow almost-clear pour some white head. Citrus grassy hop aromas, lemons yeast. Perfume flavors on the tongue, some funk, acidity fades to banana yeast then to very strong bitterness. Dry clean palate and mid body. A bit of a departure from the style definitely american. I wouldn’t session this as it is a bit too harshly citric and bitter.

degbert (1621) - 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.

lesifflebiere (1618) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 5, 2014
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.

Mittenator (1612) - Michigan, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Bottle. CLIUDY yellow with a huge, white head. Sour yeast and dry aromas. Weird grass and clove.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
Beaver (1612) - 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.
