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!

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.

DrSilverworm (5899) - 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.

Bottle. Pours amber with an off white head. Light spicy yeast, faint malty sweetness, and flowery hops. Good stuff.

DSG (5615) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - 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.

Mora2000 (5527) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 26, 2014
On tap at Big Texas Beer Fest. Golden with a white head. The aroma and flavor have some biscuit malt as well as some Belgian yeast notes. I also get a hint of orange citrus as well as some very light earthy funk notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

thirdeye11 (5480) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 27, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2013 (Draught) clearish bright gold, lasting soapy white bubbles and decent lacing. Nose is earthy, rose water, Czech/noble hops. Taste is peppercorns, earthy, bit soapy, light earthy bitterness that also lingers on the palate, rye or some other spicy component. Interesting but too spicy and earthy.

Cornfield (5437) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUN 17, 2014
Arenít all Saisons sessionable? Well, to me at least. This oneís got a somewhat hazed straw body with a skinny little fizzy head. Interesting aroma. I donít know whatís in it, but I pick up some coriander, ginger, and maybe some chamomile, all over a soft grainy sweetness. The flavorís a bit spice forward, much like the nose, and has some citrus sweetness. The finish is dry and all spiced up, a bit too much for me, coating the mouth and staying there. Over all, not too shabby.

PorterPounder (5341) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 14, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly sparkling, but kinda murky light golden with a bubbly white head. Aroma is fresh and grassy with some bubblegum accents. Flavor is refreshingly chewy with a sharp saffron-like spiciness, some bubble gum sweetness, a hint of yeast. Mouthfeel has a nice thickness to it. Pretty solid.
