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!

DSG (11505) - 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 za’atar, more spices and a bit of yeasty fruitiness. Fruity and yeasty flavor with spices, sage, and a dry finish. Medium-bodied.

TomTron (452) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 14, 2013
Pours a hazy yellow with a thins white head. Aromas of yeast and spice. Flavor is spicy with some of the Belgian yeast slightly coming through and some citrus but nothing really dominating the other. Overall not bad but nothing to write home about.

adnielsen (10475) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Bottle @ home via trade with pineypower, I believe. Pours a cloudy, light yellow orange appearance with a fluffy, off white head. Very floral, spicy potpourri, lemon zesty, spicy yeasty, very citrusy aroma. The aroma is a lot more spicy than I would like but it’s ok. Big spicy, coriander, dry floral, lavender, herbal, dry grainy, citrusy flavor that finishes pretty smooth. Too spiced for my taste but it isn’t bad per se.

jmcgavin12 (492) - Madison, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Pours light yellow with a bit of frothy head. Aromas of spic and malt with a bit of yeast but not too drastic. Taste is a combination of sweet malty hay with a bit of hoppy notes near the end. Overall a decent beer for the spring

jhgrantjr (466) - Tennessee, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Poured from a bottle, yellow, good carbonation and good white head. Aroma of lemons, citrus, yeast, maybe grapefruit. Taste has a bite to it, not smooth. Not that good. I wouldn't drink it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jcartamdg (3065) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Pours gold with a thin white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, pepper and citrus. Taste is bitter, herbal with lots of pepper and some grapefruit. Nothing exciting but easy to drink and refreshing.

pours clear yellow gold with nice light white head. Aroma is citrus and spicy peppercorns. Taste is lighter on the spices than i would have expected, still has the hints of citrus and spice with a nice light bitter finish.

2/27/14. Bottle. Pours with a nice frothy head and fragrant spicy nose. Thinner somewhat astringent mouth typical of sessions. Uses the spice to keep the flavor up without overdoing the hops ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
