COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Itís 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 youíll 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!

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. Iím 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. Doesnít 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.

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.

Bottle. Golden color with small head. Nice, spicy aroma. Belgium spicy yeast, coriander, clove, light citrus fruit. Higher carbonation. Lemon notes in taste. Light bodied. Light hoppy finish. Refreshing and satisfying.

jsmerig (1472) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 18, 2013
Pours a light yellow with a foamy white head and an active carbonation. Aroma of pumpernickel and lemon zest. Taste is grainy, grassy peppery with a bit of citrus. Dry and crisp but a little too bitter. Not my favorite style but a decent rendition nonetheless. Once and done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

chucklemation (1397) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - JAN 16, 2014
Has a golden yellow color with a very healthy white foam. Smell is lemon, but the taste is a little weak. Thereís a hint of lemon and some light spices in the finish. Has a nice carbonated feel, but overall is just okay.

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - MAY 30, 2013
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.

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2013 Bottle into pint glass. Slightly cloudy golden color with white head. Aroma of spices (coriander and pepper stick out), some citrus fruitiness, bread, with some floral notes. Taste brings out more of the spices, citrus and pepper notes with a body thatís fairly yeasty and malty. Slight earthy hop note at the end. Medium body, average carbonation, complex, smooth and easy to drink. Dry and somewhat peppery finish. Pretty good, Iím pairing this with my Italian dinner coming up.
