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!

On tap at BTS 4/11/13. Hazy golden color, pillowy head that left sticky lacking, hoppy/floral nose, fizzy mouthfeel. Herbal notes and bitter finish.

Meh. Best part is the smell. Not much flavor, very basic Caisson taste. Easy to drink.

This has a strange and very noticeable smell of chlorine bleach to it. I have had two bottles from two six packs with the same results. If you don’t like beer that tastes like bleach, avoid this. It does look nice in the glass and seems to be a nice, citrusy saison underneath that but who cares when there is such an enormous flaw. It is like drinking a lemon scented cleanser only maybe not quite as poisonous.

John25 (189) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - APR 15, 2014
Bottle. Pours gold with some cloudiness and a lot of activity. The aroma is yeast, hay, orange peel, and spice. The taste adds grass and lemon but lacks overall flavor. The mouthfeel comes on strong at first then instantly fades leaving an acidic aftertaste. Maybe too much lemon. Ok overall but, I wouldn’t get this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ron (2344) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 14, 2014
Bottle. Pours a pale hazy yellow. Huge white head on this leaves a decent amount of lacing. Aroma is floral, lemon, straw. Taste is light bodied, slightly sweet with strong notes of lemon and pepper spice. Very crisp, lemony finish. Would be nice in the summer.

joet (2052) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - APR 12, 2014
Green tinged golden liquid with a slim head of fine white foam. Creamy, spritzy feel. Very little bouquet. Mineral, white pepper, paper, earthy. Welcome taste just off dryness. An estery tropical note, phenolic bandage, medium to heavy bitterness in the finish. Lots of character for a little guy but too much bitterness and spice in the way of the saison greatest offerings: rustic simplicity and quaffability.

Big spicy citrus nose and huge white head. Poured into a tulip glass. This is one of my favorite saison’s made in the united states. All the flavor without the boozieness of bigger saisons.

Luvystypotables (378) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - APR 5, 2014
Aroma of hops, dried fruit, cloves and spice. Pale caramel colour. Taste of cloves and hops slightly bitter finish.

degbert (1001) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 31, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with large amounts of visible carbonation and a fine-grained, quick-dissipating, white head. Nose is lemon, some phenols, and a touch of latex. Very crisp on the tongue, with definite bitter lemon notes; light hops present, bready grains, but the bitter sourness, reminiscent of citrus pith, remains dominant; too much so. Finish is acidic and short. There’s something out of whack here.

Chipalsa (1306) - Florida, USA - MAR 28, 2014
I liked this brew, it was citrusy, a tad zesty and even sweet at a certain point. I could drink this all day - which is exactly what I did. Thanks for bringing this one OmegaX!!!

pinkie (425) - New York, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Pours a beautiful hazed lemon yellow with about a fingers worth of white foam that fell quickly. Nose is funky with Belgian yeast and has some bright sweet lemon peel. There’s a tiny bit of spice on the nose too. Taste is simple and graceful. Bright lemon, a bit tart, on a sweet light dry cracker. Sparkling carbonation and a touch of pepper as it finishes. This beer is everything a saison should be. Has a very pleasant hop herbal on the nose and a bit of spice in the drink. As you drink you will find a delightful tartness to offer just a slight bit of pucker. Has plenty of juicy lemon on the palate and a crisp off dry finish.
