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!

Garrold (2613) - 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.

spacecube (1334) - 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.

Shag (2684) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Cloudy yellow with a white head. Aroma is a soapy detergent lemon thing going on. It smells like Orval! This is very dry yet yeasty with a sharp lemon flavor that is slightly sour but very bitter and dry. Oh I see what you are doing Victory you are trying to make an Orval clone. Congrats you did just that! Strip away the name this is way higher rated than it currently is. Overall Im giving a bit above Orval for the balls to do this! Cheers!

guzzler67 (1563) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Hazy gold appearance with a small white head and decent lacing. Aroma of yeast and an array of spices in a field of grain. Dry, tart, earthy flavor with notes of lemongrass, pepper and citrus and a defined spicy aftertaste. Medium bodied mouthfeel with lively carbonation and a short lived finish.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 3, 2013
UPDATED: APR 15, 2013 Bottle. Pours a pale, slightly hazy straw gold. Light, fluffy white head and good retention as well as lacing. Nose shows some sharp herbal and spice notes: sage, basil, grass, maybe coriander. Taste adds some white pepper and a nice grassy hop bite. A nice alternative to other session beers. A baby cousin to Saison du Buff with a splash of Prima Pils, perhaps.

drowland (6841) - Georgia, USA - MAR 9, 2013
3/9/13. 12oz bottle from Grassroots. Hazy golden pour with a solid off-white head that fades. Spice, light malts, esters, a hint of plastic, and citrus in the aroma. Lightly malty flavor with plenty of phenolic spice, some citrus, esters, and a lingering dry bite. Light amd drinkable. Nice.

ryanscourt (924) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Strong lemon, herbal aroma. Lively carbonation, floral. Very good spring beer. Session is a fair description. Could drink many. Liked it even more as it went on. Light hop finish.

tmongoose (1672) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 13, 2013
12oz bottle poured golden yellow with just a touch of haze. White head that leaves a nice lacing on the glass. The aroma was of some undetermined spice notes and citrus. The aromas were light in nature. The flavor is a light to medium evervescent blend of those spice mixes and citrus possibly lemon with some yeasty funk but its not overpowering. Overall a pretty good flavor and this is one you could easily drink a few. There is a lot of carbonation with this beer as well.

portableparty (2067) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAR 14, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Pours hazy gold with a light white head that leaves a thin film and collar. Aroma is bread yeast with light citrus and lemon rind. Taste is more bread biscuit peppery spice and mild citrus notes. Palate is crisp and dry. I will really enjoy this stuff when it 88 degrees out come summer.

Fragrant and classic of the style. Perhaps a bit forgettable but it's balanced and pleasant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
