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!

drowland (5953) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - MAR 9, 2013
3/9/13. 12oz bottle from Grassroots. Hazy golden pour with a solid off-white head that fades. Spice, light malts, esters, a hint of plastic, and citrus in the aroma. Lightly malty flavor with plenty of phenolic spice, some citrus, esters, and a lingering dry bite. Light amd drinkable. Nice.

after4ever (5927) - Brier, Washington, USA - MAY 27, 2013
12-oz. Pours a hazy bright medium gold with a dense and eggy platinum blond head. Nice chamomile and white pepper nose, right where you want it, though the aromatics fade way too quickly. For those first couple sniffs and first couple drinks, though, wow, the white pepper and super intense dryness really make you feel like you’ve stumbled into something great somehow. Wish that effect held up over the life of the glass, but at least that moment of promise did flash by. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Bits of egg yolk, chamomile, and white pepper on the mid palate, but very subdued. Restrained finish. Not bad. Possibly great. Ends up in the middle, but, sadly, not close enough to great.

KyotoLefty (5894) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 13, 2014
Bottle from BOTW. Clear pale golden, fine head. Lemony nose, spicy yeast, light grains and hay. Clean. Clean and citrusy, spicy yeast, crisp, light bready malts. Decent beer, not a whole lot of saison character, but high drinkability. Relatively high carbonation.

blankboy (5797) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2013
Bottle [12oz]. Pours a murky yellow-gold with a large lasting fluffy white head. Some lacing on the glass. Aroma of yeast, citrus, spices, herbs, light grassy hops and some bready, floral and earthy notes. Yeasty, citrusy and spicy flavour along with light hops and a dry herbal finish. Medium bodied. Pretty good, I personally like how spicy it is. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

arminjewell (5715) - Fort Collins, Colorado, 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.
