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!

MartinT (9267) - 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.

arminjewell (9237) - 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.

KyotoLefty (9114) - 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.

3fourths (9104) - 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.

marcus (9011) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine, Sacramento. Pours clear golden with a frothy white head and a fruity aroma. There is a light-bodied bitter malt flavor with a nice yeast presence and a dry spicy finish.

alexsdad06 (8898) - Ohio, USA - MAR 17, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small to medium sized quickly disappearing white head. The aroma has a big herbal component, grass, light citrus with mild spices. The flavor also leans to the herbal side, light spices, grass, pale malts and light citrus. The key word with this is light; it is thin and soft on the flavors. I would put this in the worth trying once category. Nothing is bad, but there are many beers I would rather have again.

b3shine (8045) - Indiana, USA - APR 7, 2013
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent gold with fluffy white head. Smells spicy, yeasty, and doughy. Tastes like it smells with a nice, dry finish. Asolid example of the style.

blipp (8011) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Bottle. Pours amber with an off white head. Light spicy yeast, faint malty sweetness, and flowery hops. Good stuff.

drowland (7876) - 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.
