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!

Tasting poured in the aisle of Whole Foods in DC from who I assume was an employee but could have been a strange mentally challenged guy who just decided to start opening beers and pouring them for strangers. Either way, thanks! Pours a very, very light yellow with slight white head. Aroma is very muted with slight belgian spice, banana and wheat. Taste is a light saison that is very dry and slight white pepper.

PhillyCraft (3146) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 9, 2013
On tap at BBE. Pours clearish gold with light to medium head and lacing. Notes of wit bier, coriander, pepper and too much spice. This one was way more of a belgian white then a saison. Medium to heavy carbonation. Not a big fan.

kidmartinek (3560) - austin, Texas, USA - APR 1, 2013
Slightly hazy yellow. White head has some staying power. Kind of a dirty laundry aroma. Floral fruity and sweet flavor. Rose petal comes to mind.

Bottle. Clear, yellow, tall foamy head. Very strong perfume aroma ... A bit much. Moderate finish.

This has been my go-to beer as of late. Sessionable is the key although it does start to get a bit estery after a few.

arminjewell (6100) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, hazy yellow pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of lemon, biscuit, some dull grass, earthy notes, slight vanilla, cracker malts as well. Taste is sweet vanilla, biscuit, into some slight lemon, fruity grape notes, kind of dull and mashed together into some grass and earth, finishing dry. Just ok.

chinchill (1722) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Undated 12 oz bottle into a Piraat tulip glass. A: Pours a slightly hazed golden color. The white head has moderate size and duration but leaves ample lacing on the glass. High carbonation by appearances (and feel). S: Plenty of lemon and other citrus with coriander and a background of grass, hops and wheat. Nice complexity for a 4.5% saison, albeit not very appealing. T- Notably tart and fruity with some lemon zest, coriander, banana, and vague spices. M- light bodied with crisp, high carbonation; dry finish. O- a flavorful Saison that is too spiced to serve as a session beer for some. Nice and reffreshig, nonetheless, on a hot summer day.

mrhoppy (1284) - Santa Clara, California, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Huge spicy perfumey lemon basil nose. Gold color with nice lace. Light bready malt. More lemon and spices. Soft mouthfeel. Basil finish. Lemon rind bitterness. Tastes good but a little fake.

5000 (6211) - 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.

Bottle. Clear gold with a 1 finger white head. Aroma is spelt and floral notes. Taste adds a heaping portion of mint and some citrus in the finish. Soft mouthfeel and light carb. Not bad but a little weird.
