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!

Well very light. Not a whole lot of taste. It would be good on the beach in place of a coors light. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

unclemike (2213) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Pours a hazy golden yellow on tap with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave light lacing. Aroma of spice, wheat, and a slight funk. Taste follows, slight bitter finish, clean and slightly tart. Good saison, but nothing that exciting

Poured from a bottle into a Victory Pint glass a light lemon yellow with a thick white head. Aroma is saison spice some light citrus. Flavor is upfront coriander/clove spice thinking orange as well. Also some bready funk. Fairly average by a stretch for a session. Bought a single bottle on whim and would have rather now not...

blklab2007 (1939) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Bottle poured a golden color with a covering of white head that hung on well. Aroma has grains, spices, and herbs. Mouth feel is medium and there is medium low carbonation. Flavor leads in with spice and herbs while there is a grainy Saison underneath. I thought from the fruit looking thing on the label there would be some citrus or peach or something in the beer.

Pleasant saison. Mild aroma with some citrus and sweet bubble gum. Taste well balanced mild Belgian ale with hints of bubble gum and a very mild funk. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

spacecube (758) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2014
330ml bottle, pours hazy golden brown with a bubbly head. Carbonation is lively. At first the nose came across as vegatal with even a bit of washing up liquid but once in the mouth the more nuanced fruity aromas come out, lemon, lychee and fizzy orangeade, with coriander and spice, quite complex and a bit unusual saison,finish is crisp and dry bitter.

Cornfield (5437) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUN 17, 2014
Aren’t all Saisons sessionable? Well, to me at least. This one’s got a somewhat hazed straw body with a skinny little fizzy head. Interesting aroma. I don’t know what’s in it, but I pick up some coriander, ginger, and maybe some chamomile, all over a soft grainy sweetness. The flavor’s 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.

Garrold (1073) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2014
Bottle from Bottledog, Kings Cross. Hazy, yellow colour. Thin, bubbly, white head. Smells like the lemon infused aftershave you’d get in a Turkish barbers shop. Lemongrass. Sorbet. Taste is dry, and a little pithy bitter. Fresh palate. A little creaminess. Finish is spicy dry, with bitterness at the end.

Gription79 (2227) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. The aroma is very interesting, orange, citrus, peppery. The flavor is husky, peppery, spicy. This is thin and astringent, lacks complexity.

allmyvinyl (2740) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 13, 2014
355ml bottle at home. Pours pale yellow, light haze. Strong herbal note, bay, maybe lemon balm, more lemon itself, white pepper. Taste has a zingy freshness, light saline note. Light body, creamy texture, bay lingers.

AshtonMcCobb (2310) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - bright golden with a nice head. Nose - lemon and a green pungent herb thing. Also a touch of fresh sweat. Cactus/aloe Vera. Maybe bay leaves. Taste - medicinal lemon balm. More fresh sweat and some tomato stalks. Palate - light to medium bodied with a tangy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - opposite of synergy. The overall package didn’t live up to the beautiful complex aroma.
