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!

JaBier (6976) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Pint at Flipside on 5/6/13. Clear gold pour with a thick white head. Aroma of malt, herbs, Belgian yeast and pepper. Malty and herbal flavor with peppery and slight banana yeast before a dry finish. Pretty nice for a session saison.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6723) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2013
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a pale yellow color with a huge fluffy white head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was a lovely mix of mustiness with moderate notes of pepper, citrus and bread. The flavor was dry, musty, dusty and funky with notes of pepper, bread dough and citrus. Long dry pepper and must finish. Medium body. Solid.

Strykzone (6720) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 11, 2014
12 ounce bottle at Bigelos. Almost clear golden with a smallish off white head. Do I smell a bit of parmesan? Grain and earth, too. Flavor is citrus that has a little bite to it. That grain and soft yeast. Earth is there but is light. The malts are also too soft. A little spiciness cones late. I love the low ABV here but wish the flavor was more robust. It is a trade off, I know.

RichTheVillan (6669) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; clear straw yellow pour with a ridiculously big head, aroma has ginger lemon and lime, taste has spice citrus, some yeasty action, pretty good for a faux saison.

vtafro (6666) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Draft. Golden pour with white head. Very fresh floral, spice and herbal aromas. Flavor follows, saison yeast plus fresh hop and spice tones.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Bottle:   Hazy straw, some sediment floats about, thin sudsy white head, little lacing.   Spicy nose, a little floral, also seems to have a bit of urinal cake like aromatics.   Peppery start, bright orange peel, with bright mountain shrubiness.   Backside has a little bit of that artificial or fragrant soapiness that makes me think of what I whiff while standing at a urinal.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Wheaty finish, fake spiciness, lingering pepper.   Not great, not terribly bad either.   Overall a bit too artificial.   Needs more floral aspects that don’t appear to be like soap.

blutt59 (6504) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 25, 2013
Bottled, clear golden yellow with short foam, yeasty aroma, lots of clove in play with rindy melon finish, bitter

Pailhead (6404) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists of citrus, banana, coriander, floral notes, and pepper. It smells like a Witbier. It pours a transparent dull gold with a small white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a soapy ring. The flavor starts with a quick dose of citrus with a touch of banana. The finish has moderate floral hops, coriander, pepper, and a touch of lemon/lemon peel. It’s light bodied with moderate-heavy carbonation. Overall, it seems like a moderately hopped (floral) Witbier.. It’s not bad, but it’s not what I want in a Saison or Wit.

Beerman6686 (6325) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2013
This one poured a slightly hazy dark straw color with a fluffy white head. Aroma was of pale grain, light spices, and yeast. Flavor was similar, seemed like a plain lager with spices added rather than a traditional saison.

Iphonephan (6191) - McLean/Jackson Hole, Virginia, USA - MAR 4, 2014
From a 12 oz bottle shared in Avon NC. Pours a clear pale gold with a thin off white head. Aroma of bubblegum and banana. Flavors of cardamom and clove. Crisp, clean finish.
