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!

DrSilverworm (8868) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 15, 2013
12oz bottle. Mostly clear yellow color. Thin bubbly white head, some bubbles on the side of the glass. Little bits of lace. Surprisingly herbal aroma makes me think Saison du Buff. Sage, oregano, thyme... Not that I donít like that, I just expected a much more traditional saison (to differentiate from the Dogfish / Stone collab). Light spice, some citrusy zest, light belgian-style farmhouse yeast. Nice savory taste. Medium body, smooth lighter crisp carbonation, more on the dry side. Enjoyable, flavorful, drinkable light saison. I canít help but think of it as a Saison Du BUFF Light, which for me is a good thing. Also always good to have another 12oz saison option.

arminjewell (8752) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, hazy yellow pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of lemon, biscuit, some dull grass, earthy notes, slight vanilla, cracker malts as well. Taste is sweet vanilla, biscuit, into some slight lemon, fruity grape notes, kind of dull and mashed together into some grass and earth, finishing dry. Just ok.

3fourths (8699) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 22, 2013
bottle. hazy gold body, short white head. basically a witbier, just like ernie said. musty perfume, orange jam (jelly? i already told you once), potpourri orange peel and sulfuric vitamin yeast in the nose. lean, dry, bitter texture and flavor. brash dryness with bracing hop acidity, totally unbalanced. okay, it doesnít taste bad, itís not the smell and flavor. itís how out of balance it is. thereís nothing here to make me want another drink. itís horribly bitter and rough for itís size. ugh.

DocLock (8678) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 7, 2014
Bottle from Wegmanís. Gold pour with white head. Nose is spicy florals, hops, slight yeasty funk. Tastes hoppy and citric with pale malt, mild funky yeasty notes, and a medium palate heft and complexity.

DSG (8665) - Tel Aviv, - MAY 14, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Yoav. Hazy yellow to pale golden. Aroma of sage, a hint of zaíatar, more spices and a bit of yeasty fruitiness. Fruity and yeasty flavor with spices, sage, and a dry finish. Medium-bodied.

MartinT (8661) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 24, 2014
My Bottom Line:
This estery Saison shares plenty of fruitiness and herbs in a lean and quenching mouthfeel.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam settles atop the misty yellow.
-This is just as flavorful as many 6%+ Saisons.
-Carbonation is not as fluffy and airy as I would have liked it to be (for this style).
-Herbal hop bitterness balances out the finish.
-Spices are well blended into the overall profile of the beer.

Ferris (8462) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 21, 2014
Draft - Lots of sweet light tropical fruit, lychee and yeast. Cloudy gold with a rich white head. Lychee, grass, hoppy bitterness and a dry herbal finish.

BVery (8187) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - APR 6, 2013
Bottle. Slightly hazy yellow pour with a white head. Nice spritzy lemon zest with some grassy hop bite. Light and crisp, and good flavor. Good stuff for summer.

Bottle. Pours a hazed golden amber with a thin white head. Lemon and spicy citrus on the nose, grain and musk. Medium bodied, lemon and musk. Spicy yeast into the finish. Very tasty.
